In a world where writings on nonprofit and philanthropy are often stiff and dense, one man dares to be different. That man, instead of writing a grant proposal that was due, started NonprofitAF.com. Each Monday saw a new post filled with wry observations about fundraising and boards, jokes about meetings and hummus, and consistent use of the Oxford Comma. Unicorns on Fire is a collection of 48 posts, some of which are consequential and others completely useless but fun to read. It represents 10 years of observations and shenanigans. You will laugh. You will think. You will flip over a table. You will wonder why there are no pictures of baby animals like there are on the blog. They were too expensive to include in this book.
