    Great book on Not-For-Profit accounting!

    This is an excellent book on not-for-profit accounting and provides a great look into the NFP world! I was lucky enough to take Larry's accounting course that uses this book. Besides having a very deep background in NFP accounting, he provides a lot of first hand experiences. This added a lot of color to his class and it comes through in the book as well. It's an excellent accounting book, but also provides a window into the NFP world...very valuable to any like me who are new to NFPs. I would highly recommend this book!
