This book is so full of valuable information. It has information that I did not find in any other book. However, I thought that since it was for dummies, it was be a snap to read. It wasn't as easy to read, but it was excellent. I also think it will be good as a reference book. It is recommended for some of the grant writing classes that I found on the internet. I am also planning to take her class online.

Writers need this book because it has information that may not be found in most of the books. Therefore, I would recommend it for all grant writers to make their collections complete.

I also brought her book "Perfect Phrases for Writing Grant Proposals.

Plenty of basic information in an easy to read format. Found that some of the information was out-of-date and didn't apply to today's competitive grantseeking environment.
