From the perspective of someone looking into a potential career in what is likely to be the non profit world interested in environmental conservation, local farms food and community development , this book plus The Idealist Guide to Nonprofit Careers for Sector Switchers turned out to be really great resources to get me thinking about what I really want to be doing and what kind of environment I see myself fitting into. Not a bad read but given the current financial crisis of Idealist.org I am not convinced into the overall applicability of the ideas proposed Still, it s a make you feel good read all through. Very thoughtful and thorough guide to making a difference in various ways volunteering, giving money, corporate social responsibility, etc I ve been working in nonprofits for years and learned tons of new things about the sector from this book Though I never actually finished the book darn you, grad school , it s an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the nonprofit sector Highly recommend it 3.5 stars Gagh, has there ever been a book that I so appreciated the content and yet had such a difficult time sticking to reading I m pretty sure the answer would be yes, if I took a moment to think about it, but the sentence pretty much sums up my feelings about this book in a nutshell I thought the content of this book was really helpful and inspiring If it weren t pretty out of date, I probably wouldn t have too many complaints about its contents and even out of date, it s still serviceable as a starting point But it took me months to bring myself to finish it And I can t figure out why If it wasn t that great at getting me to finish in a timely fashion, then I probably need to dock it a star or two even if I m not sure why that was.In the meantime, I still think it s a really good starting point for people looking for ways to get involved I guess I just hope they either havesticktoitiveness than me or are able to get what they need without reading the whole book.
