Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth every dime This book is full of good information, and some new perspectives on old themes. I would recommend the book to anyone starting an event or seeking sponsorship for an existing event. Every sponsor seeker should have this book in their library and read it every year or two.
