The Giving Carnival: Edition Three

The third edition of The Giving Carnival is underway and the topic is Philanthropy Book Recommendations:

Phil Cubeta, of Gift Hub, brings us a list of the books he most often recommends to friends and family, as well as his “top secret all time favorite”.

Jeff Brooks, of Donor Power Blog, reviews last year’s controversial book Who Really Cares, which was written by Jeff’s brother… Seriously.

Paul Botts, of dot-org, also reviews Who Really Cares with a Part I and Part II.

The Washington Area Women’s Foundation polled their staff and came up with a number of recommendations.

Jeremy Gregg, of The Raiser’s Razor, recommends Jim Collin’s (of Good to Great fame) book on the social sector.

Kevin Jones, of, recommends P.J. O’Rourke’s reinterpretation of Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations.

Gayle Roberts, of Fundraising for Nonprofits, suggests a list of books for fundraisers.

I weigh in with my favorite books, including the kid’s book that every adult should read.

Thanks to everyone who participated. I hope all my readers have a lot of time set aside to get through these great books.
