      "Ssokay"

      Good primer. Brief and to the point. Not an extensive review or resource though.

      "My financial education from owner to CEO"

      The explanation of how the Board of Directors should work is easy to understand. As a small business owner I've been forming corporations and building a financial team I recommend all of my business partners to understand my goals by reviewing these same audio books by Deaver Brown.

      "Pithily insightful thoughts for boards"
      Any additional comments?

      Provides plenty to think about. Primarily aimed at for-profit board members and wannabes, but much carries over to not-for-profits.
