Praise for Governing With Soul:

"A ground-breaking book... very easy to read, chock full of useful information garnered from the direct experience and insights of those who create soul-wise boards... brimming with lots of practical, innovative, and soul-releasing information, practices and ideas.  If you serve on a non-profit board, or know someone who does, buy this book."

"Governing with Soul offers a refreshing and inspiring perspective on nonprofit governance.  Its deeply felt values and vision-based approach reminds us of why board members and staff devote energy and passion to helping people and improving communities through nonprofit social benefit organizations. Its emphasis on respect, fulfilment, compassion and shared values makes this a wise, imaginative, and very useful publications."
