Now that it’s summer, have you found yourself with more time for pleasure reading? Want to throw some guides to organizational effectiveness and digital organizing into your beach bag amid the crime series and romance novels? Consider one of these three books by some sharp and talented pals-of-Idealist:
- Zilch: The Power of Zero in Business, by Nancy Lublin, called “a must-have for anyone running a Fortune 500 company or small business who wants to learn how to grow their business while spending zilch.”
- Share This! How You Will Change the World with Social Networking, by Deanna Zandt, which “offers concrete strategies and advice for both individuals and organizations looking to engage” in social media.
- The Networked Nonprofit: Using Social Media to Power Social Networks for Change, by Allison Fine and Beth Kanter, which helps nonprofit organizations “overcome their fears of losing control and evolve to meet the informational and cultural needs of today’s donor and volunteer.”
