From Library Journal
The spirit of volunteerism has swollen the number of volunteer organizations to over 1.14 million in the United States. Many people are asked to participate as a director on a nonprofit board but are clueless about their responsibilities. Stoesz, who has served on religious and other nonprofit boards, and Raber, a management consultant, have written a simple book about nonprofit governance. It does not offer any particular insights about nonprofit management, but it is a good primer for those who want to form a nonprofit board. The chapter on legal dimensions is particularly useful.
