Summary "Abraham J. (Abe) Briloff has devoted his entire life to the profession of accountancy as an academic, author and speaker. He has fought long and hard and at personal risk to his career and personal fortune for his concept of a better accounting profession. He urged the accounting profession to live up to the lofty expectations of the business community and society. Since 1944, when he became a certified public accountant until the present, as he nears the age of 92, his life has been dedicated to his personal concept of an ideal professional accountant. He has remained faithful to what he considered to be the best interests of the accounting community even though, at times, this dedication resulted in scorn and ridicule on him." --Book Jacket
