Great First Book 21 May 2014
By The Sassy Countess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am giving this a five because I think that it hits on all of the points of museums. However, I would like to add that this is really for the beginner, or for someone who just likes to read everything they can about a subject. To be honest, I opened it just enough to get my discussion board done, and even some weeks didn't open this one at all. Why? because the same information is in other books. However, I think that for someone just getting into Museum studies, this is a perfect first book.

Excellent book and in-depth overview of the museum "business", the constituent's profiles, and challenges museums face in the 21st century. A must read for anyone going into the museum non-profit sector.

Excellent update. It's hard to find books on the museum field written in an engaging manner. This one isn't perfect, but getting there.
