Get ready to question everything you've been told about charity and to find out how you can truly succeed at making the world a better place.
Many of us donate to charitable causes, and millions more work or volunteer for nonprofit organizations. Yet virtually none of us has been taught what it means to succeed at doing good, let alone how to do so. In short we've never been encouraged to treat charity with the seriousness and rigor it deserves.
How to Be Great at Doing Good is a complacency-shattering guidebook for anyone who wants to actually change the world, whether as a donor, a volunteer, or a nonprofit staffer. Drawing on eye-opening studies in psychology and human behavior, surprising interviews with philanthropy professionals, and the author's 15 years of experience founding and managing top-rated nonprofits, this book is an essential listen for anyone who wants to do more good with their time and money.
Sure to generate controversy among nonprofits and philanthropists who prefer business as usual, How to Be Great at Doing Good reveals that a more calculated, effective approach to charity work isn't just possible - it's absolutely necessary for those who want to succeed at changing the world.

"Informed Contribution > Emotional Charity"
Enlightening to anyone interested in helping others! Great examples herein with money and efforts outcomes, comparisons, and how selfish we can ironically be when contributing to any charity or to anyone.
"Perfect introduction to effective philanthropy"
Must read for any philanthropist or foundation board members, directors and staff (and nonprofits too).
