Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Jossey-Bass Handbook of Nonprofit Leadership and Management brings together leading experts in the nonprofit and management fields to describe effective practice in all the important functions, processes, and strategies of nonprofit management. Based on the most current research, theory, and experience, this comprehensive edition offers useful advice for managing nonprofit organizations and addresses key aspects of practice such as board development, strategic planning, lobbying, marketing, fundraising, volunteer management, financial management, risk management, and compensation and benefits.

New chapters include information and knowledge in areas that have developed and changed substantially since the second edition was published, including: social entrepreneurship, financial leadership and capital structure, demands for new levels of accountability and transparency, and the changing political and legal climate and context.

Praise for the third edition of the The Jossey-Bass Handbook of Nonprofit Leadership and Management

"To leaders and educators in the nonprofit sector, this edition takes the volume to a new level. The new chapters on accountability, finance, and social entrepreneurship are timely additions that bring even greater depth and value to this impressive collection. This is an essential book for every nonprofit leader's bookshelf."
Patrick Rooney, executive director, Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University

"Loaded with managerial best practices, illustrative examples, and tips for running an effective operation, the Handbook is a must read for seasoned and fledgling nonprofit leaders alike."
Kathleen P. Enright, president and CEO, Grantmakers for Effective Organizations

"This handbook is a masterpiece of grounded scholarship about the nonprofit sector. No faddish jargon here but a strong, clear description of how things really work in this sector. I'm certain readers will find themselves, even years later, remembering this insight or that framework that helps make sense of even the most confounding and delicate of situations... and there are plenty of those to go around."
Ruth McCambridge, editor-in-chief, The Nonprofit Quarterly

While this book is very technical (and rather dry for most people), it does a phenomenal job with the subject matter.

This update of the classic work on non-profit leadership is a must for everyone who's interested in leadership and governance in the non-profit sector. The editor has assembled a diverse and talented cast of authors who have produced a treasure-house of provocative and informative material on a wide array of important topics.

I wish Karen had explained her mystifying description of the book as "Marxist to the max." I found discussions of competition but not communism, and markets, but not Marxism. Non-profits rely on gifts, grants, and, sometimes, auxiliary sales to support themselves. How does she think they'll plunder anyone's wealth?

I rated this book with five stars because it is an excellent book and resource for anyone who needs to learns about nonprofit leadership, management, operations, fundraising, etc. It is the must go to guide for all subjects affecting nonprofit organizations. I recommend that you always upgrade to the new edition as it becomes available. A friend of mine gave me her second edition and its was completely obsolete. The newer edition (3rd at this point in time) will have more updated information, resources, terminology that did not exist when the older edition/s were printed. Again, a great book for anyone who is interested in learning about nonprofit leadership and management.

While this book is very technical (and rather dry for most people), it does a phenomenal job with the subject matter. I would recommend it to the leaders of profit based companies too. There is nothing difficult about what it presents (although the chapter on financial organization required my full attention) it presents running a non-profit business from a very practical and common sense type of way. There is clearly a lot of experience that went into this book.

Do NOT rent from RentU. I rented this book in Jan 2014 and was told it needed to be returned by June 2014. Now, I see that they changed the rental to a purchase and I own it!

I recommend this to all non-profit CEOs, COOs, and fund development staff. A solid understanding of the standards in running a nonprofit is essential to success.

Very through information about operating a non-profit. Some of the information is dry and boring, but it is well presented. Everything you need to know about running a non-profit is in this book.
