I was disappointed to see that the main title should be taken literally, that the volume covers only the issues of meetings and keeping records of those meetings, and that it assumes a non-profit with its own office space and employees. Given how narrow the subject was, I would suggest to the author that he cover in more depth alternate situations, like where the records can and/or should be kept when there is no permanent office. Indeed, with the internet, it's possible that a nonprofit organization can exist soley in cyberspace, with an elected board drawing from multiple states that turns over completely every few years. The issue of where and how to keep physical records in that case would I think give much better depth to the discussion that would make the whys and wherefores more clear even in a case where there is a rented office and a filing cabinet in an obvious central location.
My favorite chapter was the last chapter, which discussed how and when to choose and use an attorney and a tax advisor. I thought it contained a lot of valuable advice.
The book begins with a disclaimer that it applies only to 501(c)(3) organizations, which is a bit limiting, but in the end, the discussion of meetings was generic enough that specific sections of nonprofit law did not come up frequently. I think the meeting advice would apply generally to any nonprofit.
As part of a larger library, this book could be useful, but if you're getting confused about running your nonprofit, or if you're figuring out how to start one, this is not the book to start with.
