This book was pleasant to read, and it does provide many links to outside sources of information as well as templates for various stages and sections of a grant proposal. However, I found that a lot of the book seemed like filler or "fluff", and it didn't contain a whole lot that I thought was anything more than just common sense. If you are at all good at writing a simple form letter, you can probably draft a proposal for most simple projects. The only thing I would say this book is exceptionally helpful with is outlining things to avoid and things to include--ie it provides a useful list of appropriate sections for proposals and what should be included in each section. If you need a boost of confidence to point you in the right direction, this book is good for that. If you can get it cheap, it might be worth it just to have as a reference; otherwise, check it out of the library, or better yet, get your hands on a proposal that someone has done that has gotten funding.
This was a good overview of the grant writing process and was just what I needed. A family member run a business with an attached non-profit and needed me to research potential grant writing possibilities. This book helped me to do just that. I will be returning the other books that I purchased because I do not need them.
It's okay but, for me, I needed extra research material added to this because it takes forever for the author to get to the point of actually sitting down and writing an actual grant.
JUST what I needed and the CD that came with it is great. As always, "The Idiot's Guide" as come through for me!
helpful to the young and old alike - great source for learning what it takes to write a grant
Great book! Thanks.
Great book to research what one needs for writing grants. Easily understood and explain to others about the processes needed in writing grants
