Top Customer Reviews
Writers need this book because it has information that may not be found in most of the books. Therefore, I would recommend it for all grant writers to make their collections complete.
I also brought her book "Perfect Phrases for Writing Grant Proposals.
The author, Beverly A. Browning, gives excellent examples, great hints, and even things to NOT do, with little warning signs, to warn the student what to look out for. I highly recommend it for anyone seeking a grant, on any level.
