When I got this book and started reading it, I found example after example of how non-profits skewer themselves by building up a large back office, by not allocating costs to projects properly, by depending on too few revenue sources, and not re-evaluating their missions from time to time.
It turns out that every real-life example in the book of a non-profit going wrong, our association was guilty of. We had built up a 33 person/$4million/year backoffice (and I couldn't even say what half of them did), we never charged HQ costs to projects (thus every project seemed to make money, even though they didn't), literally half our income in the annual conference and exhibit came from 7 vendors in the exhibit (who were getting very restive), and we refused to reconsider our mission, even after our vendor base declined from a high of 250 to the current 25-30.
If the Board (not just the executive director) would have taken the lessons in this book to heart BEFORE the fall, perhaps the association wouldn't be where it is today, just barely hanging on to life, and largely irrelevant to the industry it once served.
Yes, the book is more for non-profits who have at least one employee...but that doesn't diminish its huge value to those entities that will end up snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by thinking that they'll never have to change...READ THE BOOK.
P.S. I left after two years when it became clear that the Board wasn't interested in any change. Within 9 months, the Board had squandered the +$1million cash reserve that I had left them, and went deep into debt...yet even today, the Board refuses to change...
The book did include some relevant planning ideas and tax information, but it was nothing you would not learn in any basic management book. The worst part of all is the fact that a considerable chunk of the material applies to for-profit business just as much as nonprofit. Where is the value of people management? What about organizing events to keep volunteers volunteering? Those questions are answered in the book, in all of ten pages. The bottom line is that it simply does not jump out of the pack of mediocre business books, in terms of nonprofit or for-profit relevance.
