Books to Understand Balance Sheet, P & L and Cash Flow

#1
I have a science/engg background. What book/site should I go through to understand basics of reading Balance Sheets, P & L statements & Cash flow?

I have a good aptitude for math/calculations & understand very basic concepts but nothing beyond that.

To start with the basics, I think "The five rules for successful stock investing by Pat Dorsey‎" would be good.

The naming of the book is not correct though, it includes everything one needs to understand as a beginner.

Currently I am reading that but very slow progress due to my time constraint. Also pick one company's annual report of your interest and make your own excel file while you progress through that book.

Hello! I would recommend you to read "Cash Flow for Dummies" as it is really a nice book for getting into the deep knowledge about cash flow and balance sheets. I have read this book and I found it really a nice one. Thank you so much!
