Books on management abound and I have unfortunately had the “pleasure” of reading my share of them. Indeed, there are books on management in just about every conceivable context: business, church, life, personal relationships (yes, really), and the list goes on. This one, however, is in its third edition because it continues to be in demand — and rightly so. Brinckerhoff here gives extremely practical advice on how to lead a non-profit entity. Note: This is not about church leadership. It’s about the practicalities of leading and managing a non-profit corporation, but that is not to say that one will not benefit greatly from this book in matters of both motivation and creativity. This book is to be highly recommended for broad-spectrum libraries, as well as those with an emphasis on management, leadership, and business.
