Good to Great and the Social Sector is Jim Collins' retort to people who ask how he can apply the concepts in his book to public sector organizations. Running a non profit myself, I find this a compelling read. Essentially he interviewed 100 social sector leaders and tried to differentiate the practices that induce success there that may not do the same in the corporate sector. Please realize that it is very, very short, perhaps 5% of the length of Good to Great. Another book that was recommended to me that we're now using at my organization with great success is The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book. It has brought about phenomenal changes in our management and our culture.

As a nonprofit professional who had recently read "Good to Great" I was excited to read this follow up monograph. I found the insights to be invaluable but wish it had been longer as I would love to learn more about how to apply the G2G principles in the nonprofit sector.

Collins refutes any notion that the nonprofit organization is a refuge for careless, undisciplined thinking. Although its organizational dynamics may be different from those of a for-profit enterprise, a non-profit can transform the world. "Must" reading for all who serve in community foundations, PACs, or religious congregations.

The book was good but your store is Eden Prairie, Minnesota reduces its attention to business books and magazines replacing this space with Hollywood Type picture magazines that only appeal to the facebook generation. You have one copy of the New York Times daily and many copies of Hollywood Type picture magazines.
