lots of purple prose, little practical advice. Drucker's reputation is selling this book.

Peter Drucker is the management guru of the 21st century and he has written another great resource for non-profit leaders. Drucker shares some vital information in an interview format with some successful leaders. The book discusses vision, marketing, and many other valuable insights into managing the non-profit organization.

The role of the non-profit organization is taking a larger role in the community during the 21st Century. With the cut backs in govermental organizations, non-profit organizations are becoming more and more relied upon by the public. Peter Drucker offers his input about the important role of leadership and commitment in this important arena. There is a vast need for guidelines how to manage these organizations. Peter Drucker gives his insight combined with interviews with leaders of other non-profit organizations on commitment, leadership, mission, and how to convert good intentions into reality. In other words he gives direction, purpose, motivation and best of all how to get there! Peter Drucker's collective knowledge and life experiences makes him the 'Master Mentor of Management.'
