really liked it

A practical book about fundraising -- it explains the step-by-step process of setting appointments, laying out your case, and asking for money.

If you're nervous about fund-raising, I don't think this book will help. It has a number of scripted exchanges that, frankly, freaked me out a little and confirmed my worst fears of being the pushy guy who wants money from everyone.

But, as a practical guide, it's solid information. Short read.
