The author initially alienated me with her focus on wealth distribution and tax reform. After all, I came for a book about fundraising, not whether or not to call an estate tax a "death tax." But, once I got past the first few chapters, I found the book extremely practical and informative. Lots of great content here, ranging from what to do in times of crisis to how to better prep board members. Definitely worth a perusal if you're interested in the topic. I would even consider buying.

It would also be a great book to discuss with any non-profit Board.

Excellent. Covered a lot of really good basics but organized in such a way that is good for more experienced fundraisers as well.
