Reviews - What do customers think about Nailing Down a Board: Serving Effectively on the Not-for-Profit Board?
Best in the genre Aug 25, 2005
Other reviewers criticize for narrow scope. It should be expected, given the author and publishing house, that the slant would be toward Christian non-profits (but not just church boards). Having said that, it's the best I've read on the subject. Clear, concise, to-the-point--no fluff!
A somewhat misleading title Mar 17, 2001
This book is primarily about boards of religious bodies and not particularly useful outside of that arena.
Decent basics, but focus is on Christian church boards. Oct 27, 1999
Base content is OK. However, be aware that this book is geared towards the selection of members for and running a Christian church board. Very frequent biblical references and text such as "a godly life, Bible knowledge, spiritual maturity and discernment are primary qualifications" (for serving on a board) undermined the usefulness of this text in preparing a guideline report for the non-religious not-for-profit I work for.
Excellent, should be required reading for all Board Members Jun 11, 1999
This is a concise guide all individuals currently serving, or considering serving on a not-for-profit board of directors should be required to read. This text is a complete guide on how a board should function as a board.
