I've poured in over 35 years of my experience into this book, so I'm really hoping you find it useful and not just as a paperweight!
Setting credit policies, collecting past due balances, recognizing the warning signs of an account going bad, legal actions etc. are all part of this book.
While I've written other books on this topic, the Wiley folks really focused my energy on this one to reach YOU, not the collection attorneys or collection agencies, but You as a credit executive or business owner.
This book should also prove useful to recruits in the collection business, as the concepts of making written and verbal demands for payment, along with forms to use, and handling disputes (real and fake) are all part of the day-to-day environment for you.
Bottom line: Dummies books are not for "dummies"...they are for people who know about the topic, but need to know more....and by "more" I mean practical, day-to-day stuff, not academic material. The check lists alone are worth more than the price of the book...then add the forms....well, you get the picture!
Have a great day, and happy collecting!
