5-0 out of 5 stars a "how-to" manual and more
Among the relatively few books available that focus on getting science grants, "Getting Science Grants" is unquestionably the very best of the bunch.Blackburn has the perfect mix of credentials (college professor, research scientist, grants officer) to craft this concise treatment of the whole enchilada, from concept development through proposal writing, revision, submission (and resubmission), and grant administration.Giving frank, qualified advice in friendly prose, the author succeeds in creating more than just a "how-to manual" for scientific proposal writing.In roughly a hundred pages, this book shares insight on the science research funding process that would only be acquired by a decade or more of study in the school of hard knocks.As one whose career success is significantly influenced by external funding success, I couldn't recommend Blackburn's book more strongly.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must purchase for every researcher!
Getting Science Grants provides readers with a complete introduction to the grant writing/submitting process.5-0 out of 5 stars Essential reading!
I found "Getting Science Grants" to be a thoroughly readable, no-nonsense little book that demystifies the grant making process. Blackburn's experience both as a researcher and as one charged with the responsibility of reviewing grant applications shows through. His book provides a step-by-step approach that, if followed, should lead to a higher probability of success and avoid wasted time and frustration occasioned by poorly prepared and submitted applications. Those just entering the sometimes perilous fight for funding will find this book indispensable, and even old hands will find it provides handy reminders of all of the points we think we know by heart, but sometimes forget to apply. This little book is a "must read" for anyone whose professional life depends on getting funding for his or her research. You simply can't afford to ignore it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended!
Former Harvard University President Derek Bok warns that making commercial ventures part of the fabric of U.S. higher education endangers universities' basic values and goals. However, he also gives compelling descriptions of why trustees and administrators are tempted to sign deals with corporations. He is realistic about the slim prospects for keeping such ventures away, especially since some - like sports teams - are already entrenched. Because Bok's analysis is so deeply rooted in his years of experience leading Harvard, his proposed guidelines for how and when to allow big business on campus are particularly helpful. His views are occasionally unwarrantedly sunny, such as when he avers that faculty members rarely guide students into work that promotes the teacher's financial gain. He also asserts that faculty must be wary of collaborating with pharmaceutical companies to get access to facilities and materials, even though funding unfettered research has become increasingly difficult. Furthermore, after asserting that doctors are alert to drug companies' promotions in sponsored continuing education courses, he acknowledges research showing that doctors who attend such courses are more likely to prescribe the companies' drugs. Despite such detours, we find this book extremely valuable for anyone who believes that academic freedom and integrity truly matter. Academic leaders should read Bok's important, thoughtful and useful ideas on ways that colleges can minimize the risks of commercialization.

3-0 out of 5 stars Thoughts on Bok's Universities in the Marketplace
Derek Bok does a respectful job in describing the issues.The book provides an excellent foundation for the general public to understand the influence of commercialization on higher education.Higher education is big business in the United States.The book's relevance to issues related to intercollegiate athletics, higher education research, online delivery of education and other influences on academics is necessary to understanding the impact of commercialization, both positive and adverse, on higher education today.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great information
Athletic marketing, academic research, alumni donations, corporate research and marketing are all topics that uniquely affect the quality and diversity associated with academic freedom.The level of control that should be applied to higher education by outside forces is the main premise of this book.Mr. Bok takes each issue and delves deeper in the cause and effect of the commercial opportunities available to institutions of higher education.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for everyone involved infund raising
The late Henry Rosso, one of fund raising's all time great teachers and practitioners, gets to the heart and soul of fund raising as he clearly presents the basic techniques. His love for philanthropy and his respectand admiration for donors is infectious.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good. Inspiring and practical guide for set up.
Rosso and Associates have created a book to inspire those who find themselves in a relatively undefined fundraising position. The book provides a conceptual framework from which to view fundraising as, asidefrom the mission, the most vital aspect of a not-for-profit organisation.You can approach this book from an absolute beginner level or from anexperienced fundraising background looking for a little inspiration andback-up. The book is, understandably, quite grounded in American law andculture so its direct application to other countries is limited. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not what you think
This is an excellent economic study of how financial aid affects the decisions of undergraduates to attend institutions, including whether to attend or not.The Student Aid Game should be read by anyone interested in making college more accessable to those who are qualified to attend but can not afford it.Schapiro and McPherson demonstrate that increasing Federal Financial Aid greatly increases the participation of minorities and the poor.It is not, however, a book designed to help parents manuever through the paper jungle of financial aid offers and dealing with financial aid offices.Their goal is far more grand, pushing for policy changes that will increase the opportunities minorities and poor americans have to attend institutions of higher learning

3-0 out of 5 stars Good background; little advice for parents
Good statistical presentation of the motivation of colleges/universities in provided financial aid over the past few decades and how it is changing. Little to help parents to how to deal with a financial aid office.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good statistical data; little advice to on getting aid
A scholarly statistical work on the trends of how student aid is being disbursed in the United States.Good analysis of the what is driving student aid offices; how they are in transition and sometimes have conflicting objectives. Little help to parents/students trying to weave through the financial aid maze.The reader can assumewhy dealing with financial aid offices can be so difficult; but the stage is set to provide more specifics which are not included. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Material, Too Technical
The market for college tuition suffers from the same problems as that for healthcare - the large impact of third-party payors (eg. government, scholarship discounts makes consumers far more indifferent regarding costs than they otherwise would be. Vedder also should have mentioned that comparing quality has also been difficult in both markets, and that suppliers are rewarded for their errors ("rework" in healthcare, increasing time to graduation due to lack of course availability). Other problems include admitting those unqualified, and high drop-out rates.
4-0 out of 5 stars A good book, but heavy on statistics.
Richard Vedder's collection and analysis of information regarding college costs and quality is an excellent exercise of statistical work.If, however, you're not familiar with stats, or just don't like them, you may want to find another book on the subject.
4-0 out of 5 stars Bringing accountability to higher education
Dr. Vedder's book and insights reaffirm the issue facing both our system of higher education and our state and local governments - how to pay for the growth of our post secondary education system and prepare students to become productive and qualified workers.Read more

Overall, this is a fine book.Not great, but fine.I've used it in online grant writing course for teachers in part because it is the best teacher-specific book available (in my opinion, of course) and most of mystudents seem to want something teacher-specific.Given my choice, MimCarlson's book "Winning Grants Step by Step" is a better book forsomeone interested in learning how to write a proposal.I do, though,really like Chapters Two and Three "Getting Ready to Seek GrantsSupport" and"Forming a Grants Advisory Group" and hischapter on federal applications is exemplary. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars good organizational choices
Very helpful to have the sections broken down into the child's age grades, rather than only by investment vehicle. And the advice on protecting oneself from the child, as well as the child from themselves, is something you don't often see. It may seem cynical, but this is really a necessary discussion to have, even if internally.
