Great information, but incredibly repetitive (but to their credit, I remembered the really important stuff because of that). It ends up being a pretty dull book. Fundraising CAN be much more exciting and compelling.

I bought the first edition of this book when I finished my training to stay brushed up on the basic, left development for a few years and bought the new edition and it brought me back up to speed. Great resource and a great pace to start.

This book is just what I needed to lay the foundation of my understanding of the fundraising world. It has filled in gaps and is very helpful as I chart the fund development course for my nonprofit.
