The book is clearly written and well organized, covering most relevant topics for non profit taxation, which is basically one of the biggest things you need to pay attention to when running a non-profit. It covers even topics like hiring ...
Enemies Among Us (Christian Mystery Series)
Center Point Large Print
Fiction doesn't get more real!
Many terrorist plots are thwarted by professionals like Bob, but we never hear about them. Read this book and get his insight on how things are really done behind the scenes. I can't wait for the next chapter in Matt Hogans exciting career.
Zilch: The Power of Zero in Business
Things you can to to enhance your company for no money (or not much money).
I know the lessons in this book from personal experience. My business partners and I built our present company having no money and were unwilling to give away all our equity to raise money. So, we have scratched, scraped, and done the things Nancy Lublin wisely advocates you do in this time of slashed budgets, decreased revenues, and carefully hoarded profits. The book has 11 chapters with ...
CauseWired: Plugging In, Getting Involved, Changing the World
Watson tries to distribute the future evenly
Tom Watson closes his title "CauseWired" with a quote from novelist William Gibson: "The future is already here; it's just not evenly distributed." It seems, once you are done with the book, that Watson is determined to more evenly distribute the future by trying to dissect it for the benefit of the readers. The advent of Facebook Causes, Kiva, Change.org and Social Actions is only the tip of ...

Grand Central Publishing, 2009
Everyone must read this book. I feel so inspired and hopeful, I can hardly contain my excitement.
Giving Back: Connecting You, Business, and Community
We make a life by what we give
Giving Back epitomizes Winston Churchill's adage "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." I have had the opportunity to meet Bert Berkley personally and to hear him speak many times at a trade association we both frequently attend, so it was no surprise that his book reflects his character and sense duty he feels about giving back to society. I have passed this ...
How to Write Successful Fundraising Letters
Jones & Bartlett Publishers
You must buy this book
If you ever think you will have to write a fundraising letter, you NEED this book. Too many people think it is just like writing any other kind of letter but it isn't. There is a rhyme and, more importantly, a reason to it. Don't write a fundraising letter without reading this book first.

Adventures of a Bystander
LASTPeter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management
"As a child I liked puddles; I still do" - P.D.
Drucker clearly explains how rampant inflation in post WW I Germany influenced the rise of the Nazi party and Hitler. This discussion should be required reading for every 14 year old child! I particularly liked his stories of Willem Paarboom, a sort of Dutch hedge-fund/investment manager who appeared to be a cross between a man and a raven. In his day, Herr Drucker was exposed to some truly ...
Church Marketing 101: Preparing Your Church for Greater Growth
Richard L. Reising
Very useful book with uninspiring title
Marketing is the "management of perception", and it is something that every church does, whether or not they do it explicitly, according to Richard Reising in this book. Managing perception is about effectively presenting reality, not manipulating the truth, and as a result the biggest marketing issues for most churches are not producing advertising materials, but the manner in which the church ...
Grassroots Marketing: Getting Noticed in a Noisy World
I'd give it six stars if I could . . .
I bought this book after hearing Shel speak. He came off as extremely knowledgeable, very down to earth, and hype-free. So is the book - I was not disappointed. In my opinion, this is a "friendly" textbook on marketing ALL small businesses, consultants, etc. should read, and certainly applicable to big biz as well. It answered questions I never knew I had. There was information I could use ...
Fundraising for Social Change
A Fundraising Startup Guide: The Nuts and Bolts to Building a Successful Fundraising Profit Center
I love this book. It's been around for a while in one form or another. Currently it is in its 5th revision. And with each revision the author has refined it. As a result, it is very well written and outlined. It is also really good because the author is a fundraising practitioner and teaches what she does. She really knows her stuff when it comes to fundraising. At least that's the impression I ...
Search: Winning Strategies to Get Your Next Job in the Nonprofit World
Piemonte Press, 2004
Perfect for smart people looking for a new job or challenge
Slesinger's book is an excellent blueprint for beginning a search and following through, even when life gets in the way. The step-by-step game plan and practical advice alone are worth the cover price, and best of all Slesinger leaves you motivated and feeling like you want to immediately get started hunting for your next great job. I have to confess that I literally missed my bus stop while ...

A Penny for Your Thoughts (The Million Dollar Mysteries, Book 1)
Harvest House Publishers, 2002
Great mystery and Unapologetic Faith
Two things make good Christian fiction. One: a good story line. In the case of a mystery, it needs an interesting crime and a solution that is not obvious. Two: an unapologetic approach to faith. Too often Christian writers shy away from actually discussing their faith, ending in a story that vaguely mentions God and behaving in a moral manner. I am very happy to say that The Million ...
