Nonprofit Management Principles and Practice review by MICHAEL OSEI

I liked the book to the extent I read the preface and began learning so much even from it. However, I hated its faded photocopy-like quality. The density of the paper was bad. As a book, color printing would be better. Colours mean a lot these days, apart from that, the book came new and very good with great knowledge.
