"If you have considered what distinguishes some nonprofits as excellent or how some nonprofits becmae excellent, then Paul C. Light's more recent research, reported in Pathways to Nonprofit Excellence, is important reading" Lynn K. Jones, DSW, CSWM, Administration in Social Work, 1/1/2003
"Pathways to Nonprofit Excellence is written in an engaging manner, and the interviews with thought leaders are worth a read on their own....Nonprofit trustees, managers, donors, and anyone else with more than a passing interest in organizational effectiveness are likely to find it useful. The book would also be an interesting addition to any graduate course in which performance or capacity are addressed, and perhaps as an indtroductory reading assignment for a nonprofit management class to set the context for discussions about organizational effectiveness." Beth Gazley, School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University, Unspecified Book Review
