It fits the coverage I need for the course while not being so detailed as to seem enclyclopedic to students.

I have been using Andreasen Strategic Marketing for Nonprofit Orgs. My colleague at Northeastern uses the Wymer text. I am not impressed. I find Andreasen laid out in a more accessible format. Tables and exhibits seem more useful, readily adoptable, in real nonprofit situations. Both textbooks are in need of an update or new accompanying DVD addressing social media. The Gomes/Knowles CV/M Matrix is a promising tool for assessing program efficacy. With more application examples, can become a free-standing chapter.
