In all fairness, most beginning grant writing books probably read just like this. The bother is that there is more pep talk than how to guidance. And most of it isn't really about grant writing at an IHE but rather general grant writing guidance. For example, there is not guidance on faculty load or research grants. I do credit the book highly, though, for some pretty cool resources.

This book gave me a greater insight into grantwriting. I have taken in so much and am about to start reading it again. The suggestions and tidbits of advice I will surely put to a test on my next grantwiting proposal as well as seminar.
