Top Customer Reviews
I especially liked the content around the levels of engagement and the need to create separate strategies for each. Nonprofiteers need to understand that there are more than just volunteers, donors, and clients.
At the other end of the spectrum, the user experience was close to abysmal. First, while Amazon makes it easy to create notes and highligh sections of the content, trying to print out those notes and highlights to another document is the equivalent of dial up in a broadband world. I was especially frustrated because I highlighted several of the illustrations of the platform. First of all, I couldn't read them on my PC or iPad because they appeared at a 90 degree angle to the screen. (I was able to disable that feature on my iPad.) But then, there was absolutely no way I could print out the illustrations.(Update: I installed the cloud reader on my PC and am able to print out the illustrations.)
I purchased my Kindle several years ago because it had the ability to export the notes as txt file (My Clippings). This seems to have been disabled. Pity the student trying to print out his or her notes. If you believe you're going to want to take notes, perhaps you'd be better off buying the paperback and taking notes the old fashioned way.
Finally, I'm aware the publisher sets the price, but, at the time I write this, the paperback costs more than the e-book. I do not understand that.
Bottom line: If you're interested in volunteer engagement, read this book, but think twice about the format depending upon your needs.
