Format: Paperback
Hamilton and Tragert give a decent survey of nonprofit organizations, rating their top 100. I was dissappointed that they included more corporate non-profits, like the NRA, and not very many localized charities, even if they're budgets are small. Also, the "potent quote" listed at the end of each entry is usually just a quote pulled from the organization's website, which shows lazy research, and can often lack potency

Beginning with a definition of a nonprofit organization (it lies between government and business, it's typically about social change or improvement, it may be controversial, and it provides a service), this book ranks organizations which employ over 100 people, have an annual budget of over $1 million, has been in business at least three years, and whose culture is somehow linked to its mission.
From Amnesty to Cousteau, from the Nature Conservancy to Zoo Atlanta, here is a brief description of well-known or lesser-known organizations. You'll have a point of contact, a statement of philosophy, and some assistance in identifying your dream organizations. There are also some tips on job-hunting in the nonprofit world. It's fascinating reading!
