I have used QuickBooks in my businesses for years and know enough about accounting so I don't screw up the basics. Nonprofit accounting and business operations are like the movies that have parallel universes, but the worlds are very different. I liked how the authors "hooked" the importance of the bookkeeping with the strategy of what an accountant, government, or other stake holders would need to derive from the bookkeeping.
The structure of the book is well thought out. The table of contents (TOC) is a very functional map of each topic, within each chapter, within each of the 4 parts. And after the TOC there is a 4 page List of Exhibits and Checklists with descriptive and intuitive titles. Part 4, Resources, is beyond thorough and useful.
The only reason I judged it as 4 stars, rather than 5, was because there is no index. I needed to know how to account for in-kind donations. The information is in the text, but without an index it took a while to find it. Aside from that, this is an excellent guide and reference.
