I bought this book to follow along with what my daughter is studying in college for her masters in non-profit. For a novice in the field of strategic planning I found it somewhat difficult to understand. I also borrowed the text book from a friend who has been through the program. It reads like a book written by college professors letting you know they are smart...which they probably are...but hard for the non-profit director who is a novice in strategic planning to understand. I wish it had been written in plainer English so I could apply this knowledge more directly to my work for a non-profit organization.

I took a course in Strategic Planning in college 20 years ago and there were a lot of references to Bryson back then. This is a great revision and summary of the latest formulas and strategies. Folks with llttle or no background can pick it up pretty easily.
