"Now we are getting somewhere. Another book on the importance of developing business/nonprofit partnerships is about to hit the bookstores. What makes this book special is not necessarily the content, although it is a fine addition to the literature of the field. Instead, it should spark the greatest interest because of the building from which many of these ideas emerged: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave." -- Corporate Philanthropy Report, October 1999
