If you have never written a successful grant before or are primarily involved in raising funds for social services this book will likely be of help. However, for the rest of us it has little to offer. The book is narrowly focused on procedures one must follow before, during and after the grant writing process, but it fails to discuss writing strategies to enhance persuasiveness or improve the presentation of complicated technical subjects. I found it useless.

The title of this book is very pretentious as is most of the text. If you are looking to develop an understanding of grants at the k-12 level or extramural programs for students k-12 or intermediate students, then this book may be of help. Others reviews suggest that this book it useful for all types of grant writing, which is far from the truth. Do not purchase this book if you are looking to refine your grant writing skills at the academic level. Although this book may of use for k-12 related programs, know that the material will be presented to you as if you were a third grader (note the title).

This book was no help to me whatsoever. I wouldn't recommend buying it. I got more information from searches I did online.
