"Gerry Zack’s book is a valuable resource for those who manage, audit, or investigate charities and other nonprofits. It is packed with information that can be used to reduce the high cost of fraud in this sector and to prevent the related reputational damage that can hurt a nonprofit’s ability to raise funds. This book can help ensure a nonprofit’s funds are used to help the needy and not wasted on lining a fraudster’s pockets."

Zack easily cuts through the fluff and zeroes in on the critical points. A rare findan informative how-to guide for avoiding and detecting fraud, written in an easy-to-digest, conversational tone. Zack is a master at making antifraud and compliance issues interesting as well as informative. Great as a primer, refresher, and a reference to be consulted again and again.
