Product Description: Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management

As a tool for clarifying the thinking of volunteer boards, the Drucker Self-Assessment Tool is unparalleled. This is a real way to develop a language, get to the critical issues, and move on--the most practical and efficient method I have seen. As facilitator of over 175 retreats, it is the best thing I've used--and I appreciate the enhancements and improvements!


--Peggy Outon, board chair, National Alliance for Nonprofit Management

The Drucker Foundation's Self-Assessment Tool has made a lot of changes in the way we do business. . . . The workbook was a good beginning. The interactions and 'homework reports' on flip-chart paper were a vital part of this learning process.


--Sue H. Brown, executive director, Senior Centers of Spartanburg County, Inc.

The results far surpassed our expectations. The Drucker Process literally revitalized the organization. The board members have rallied around a new mission statement, taken on a variety of tasks, and designed new programs, which are very realistic.


--Beth S. Cole, former executive director, American Academy of Home Care Physicians

It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.

If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
