"A fresh and systematic look at the writings of Machiavelli enables the reader to see beyond the opportunism that is so often associated with Machiavelli's name to a realistic and principled set of strategies for achieving public virtue." --David A. Erlandson, professor of educational administration, Texas A&M University
"The Jinkinses have cut through much of the wishful thinking that floods our leadership discussions these days. In this remarkable example of practical humanities scholarship, they have dusted off a great political thinker and put him to work to illumine our realities. Those who lead all sorts of nonprofit organizations can benefit from this bracing encounter with political realism." --James Wind, president, The Alban Institute and author of Places of Worship

Top Customer Reviews
Essentially, this book gives you some wonderfully useful strategies and ideas for making progress toward your organization's mission. You may have to learn to settle for incremental progress, for not always accomplishing everything you'd like to as soon as you'd like, but you can make a difference without compromising your values. The lessons in this book are practical for leaders of nonprofit and for-profit organizations. A little slow in parts, but well worth it overall.
