Baruch Lev and Feng Gu want to change this sorry state. Their seminal book is divided into four parts: 1) Relevance Lost; 2) Why Is the Relevance Lost?; 3) So, What’s to Be Done?; and 4) Implementation. The End of Accounting is the most important book that has been written on the irrelevance of the accounting reporting model in recent times.
