If you are responsible for bookkeeping for a non-profit corporation and choose QuickBooks, this is the only book available and it is five years out of date. Nevertheless, accounting practices don't change like technology does, so the book is still highly useful. Also, QuickBooks isn't really set up for non-profits (I speak of the "Pro" edition), and the author shows you how to do it right with all the workarounds. Essential.
I echo Kirk's review. The one book I give to all my clients (nonprofits). Absolutely essential. I've checked out over 7 books covering nonprofit accounting using Quickbooks and this is by far the best. Sufficient structure and explanation for beginners as well as options/customizations that advanced users can appreciate.
While this text offers a handful of useful tips, it's largely a manual on QuickBooks with a few references to nonprofit templates thrown in. For the QuickBooks beginner, it may be helpful. For the experienced QuickBooks user, it will help very little in learning how to tailor the program for nonprofit use.
