I found this book a great help in my studies as a volunteer student, it outlines key concepts and introduces the reader to many different areas of not only volunteer managment but managment in general. It outlines the how to's of voluntary managment in an easy to understand way and throughout the book provides useful links where the reader can obtain more information on any given area within the book. Everything from appraisals to VAT and equal opportunities to recuitment is covered, no area of managment is missed out.
This book is a must for all volunteer managers.

Adirondack designed this book to be 100% practical and academic free, so it's accessible to workers of whatever background or experience.
It's handly split into managable chunks so that you can dip in and out for a bit of advice on, for example, 'fundraising' one day, 'meetings' the next and 'how to run supervision' for workers on another occasion.
I was first recommended it as the book to buy for a module on management which I was taking as part of a youth and community work degree. I would *highly* recommend the same to others. If you are going to buy one book, this one covered everything I needed: models of leadership, different structures of management - that sort of thing, useful for quoting - as well as practical tips for applying to my practice as a youth and community worker.
The one warning I would give, is that as Adirondack covers a wide breath of management issues within it, it may be a little simplistic for the seasoned manager of a larger organisation.
Instead, it is ideal for the new manager, without specialised training. Even an experienced, but untrained, manager may find useful tips for efficient management.
