By Paul Morrison on April 24, 2015
Format: Hardcover
I am not a manager, my business card says I am a scientist, but I ended up being the director of a large set of molecular biology core facilities within a nonprofit academic institution. A faculty member I was collaborating with had this book fall out of his bag in my office. Before I was able to get it back to him I read the first chapter then bought it online. This was back in 2001 and it has helped me ever since. Research Admin borrowed it for a couple of years but it showed back up in the mail since I stamped my name in it.

Most useful: when administration said, "no, you cannot do that, NIH guidelines say that is forbidden", I could sometimes find a kernel of information in this book that instead showed that NIH did allow it. There are buzzwords worth knowing, "institutional offset", but they are clearly explained so when someone uses the buzzword you can go all Inigo Montoya on them. "You Keep Using That Word, I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means."

This is an accounting book for non profits. I would have thought it would be the most boring book I ever cracked. Quite the opposite. The case studies are actually pretty entertaining and you might find one that is a mirror image of the big problem you have today.

This book was exactly what I needed to get me through my Non-profit organization's course. Even though is copywrite is 1999, the concepts were still applicable.
