This is a good choice for some quick ideas and inspiration. Sections ranging from displays to grants to working with youth to management allow the reader to skip through the book to pick and choose chapters. I realize that this book was published by a small and probably independent publisher but the cover image is so absolutely horrible it is hard to not to judge this book by its cover. No image would have been better than this amateur drawing. ( )
