CFO books

Anyone on here have experience reading any good "how to" books about CFO responsibilities? Common pitfalls, unique experiences, qualities, etc.

All feedback is appreciated.

re: CFO books
Not a book but the Wall Street Journal has a section called CFO journal and I actually get an e-mail every morning called the morning ledger from the CFO journal (requires subscription). But I am sure some of the articles on there are accessible for free.

re: CFO books
I am a CFO. I have never read any books to learn how to do my job other than maybe my undergrad Accounting textbooks and CPA material. Are you currently a CFO?

re: CFO books
Haha god no i'm not a CFO. I'm joining a company post grad school that helps manage and run startups. I'm competent from a financial and accounting standpoint, but would like to get ahead of the game and do some outside learning/research. I'm of the opinion that the only way to REALLY learn is by doing, which I have done to an extent, but would like to read some books just to supplement my knowledge.

And honestly, it doesn't need to be a "how to" book, but if others on here have experience being a CFO or related position, i'd like to know what books, programs, software (other than quickbooks), etc that could augment my experiential learning.

re: CFO books
Rule number one, establish and maintain good relations with the commercial and investment banking community. Rule number two, hire good subordinates who work well with your auditors and outside tax advisors. Your controller, tax director and internal auditor will take care of the day-to-day stuff allowing you to take care of rule number one.

re: CFO books
Industry & company size will greatly differentiate the responsibilities of a CFO.

You ought to focus on the responsibilities of your job and gain a solid grasp on that, before you start worrying about how to do your boss' job.

At that point, you'll be able to ask more appropriate & direct questions.
