Interesting but a touch arrogant, 7 Jan. 2012
Easy to read narrative with numerous anecdotes. The perspectives are interesting, if often common sense, and yes, there are a good few 'lessons' in here I'd dearly love my bosses to employ but I found that after reading about two third's of the book, I was starting to want to argue with her that what she was comparing negatively about for-profit businesses was simply, badly managed ones and there are plenty of those in not-for-profit too. It began to feel like arrogance that the author felt she could teach for-profit organisations lessons that many not-for-profit ventures had quite possibly learnt from for-profit ones anyway. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much. The best chapter is the first.
