Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Duschinsky is a gifted storyteller, and his ability to weave disparate threads of thought from many disclipines into an integrated action plan for nonprofits is truly impressive. Whether engaged directly in philanthropic enterprises or not, readers will find this book fascinating-a thought provoking look at our emerging global village." (Estate Planning, August 2009)

"…consultant Duschinsky explains what today's "flat' world, characterized by lowered trade and political barriers and telecommunications advances, means for nonprofits and their donors. He gives advice to nonprofit managers and fundraisers on attracting donors, competing against other flat world fundraisers, and reacting to and growing with the opportunities presented by the flat world." (Book News, May 2009)
