The contents of this book could have been summarized in a short article. By page 5 the book tells you that if you want to know how to form a nonprofit you should get the book "How to Form a Nonprofit" which is also published by the same publisher! A lot of other books by Nolo are recommended usually prefaced by something along the lines of "we can't go into much detail here, but get this other book that we publish." The discussion of the annual tax return, form 990 takes up just half a page, and contains the comment "half the battle is knowing which form to file." Well, this book mentions Forms 990, 990-N and 990-EZ but fails to mention Form 990-PF!

The cover says the book includes downloadable forms. Only four forms are available, none of them any use to me (agreement with independent contractor, and so on.) I would have expected "Articles of Organization" for a corporation and a trust document if the nonprofit is a trust, but nope. Neither downloadable, nor printed in the book. I would have expected bylaws, either in the book or downloadable. Nope.
What this book does is a lot of padding: chapters on hiring employees and withholding tax, on starting a website, on fundraising (call people or send out letters, duh!) on finding a lawyer (get a referral, duh) etc.

I'm very disappointed because I have bought other books by Nolo (Estate Planning, Revokable Living Trust) and those were good books.

This book covers some of the essential information necessary to beginning a non- profit but it is also complicated to understand. There are parts that are basic yet parts that are difficult to understand. It is definitely not the book for a beginner in this area. It is necessary to have some knowledge in the area of business and nonprofits to understand what information is being giving in this book.

The small extra cost for the Mancuso book by the same publisher would have paid many times over.
Whenever we get down to actual guidelines in this silly book, Mr Pakroo refers us to use Mancuso's book.
This is basically useless unless you just want to read about starting a non-profit but don't really want to DO it.
I don't know if I hate it- but it was basically a waste of limited funds.

I was interested in learning everything that I needed to know about setting up a nonprofit organization, step-by-step. I wanted to know the right questions to ask an attorney and do as much of the groundwork as possible to help save costs.

Attorney Peri Pakroo has done a superb job. This book was EXCELLENTLY written, easy to understand, thorough, and presented in a concise format. I found the price to be quite reasonable considering that it ALSO contained a CD that had various checklists.

So much of forming a nonprofit organization is just following directions (but you NEED to FOLLOW the directions perfectly) and doing steps A-Z. (There are a LOT of steps!) "Starting and Building a Nonprofit...." made following these directions clear and straightforward to get you through each step.

At the same time, because they were featured together - I also ordered "Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Your Nonprofit Organization" by Ms. Cellaneous based on a lot of excellent reviews. In my opinion, it didn't begin to cover the process of all the steps needed to form an organization.

Thankfully, I ordered THIS book as well...because frankly, it was the only book I found I needed.
