"This book is vitally important for understanding the complex financial underpinnings of higher education.

    Good intro book to budgeting in higher ed; easy to read and comprehend.

    As I begin to design a new grad program, this book was very helpful to me. Budgeting and finance is not my strength, and this book helped me break apart the big scary picture into little bits that I can handle. The writing is clumsy (it should've had one more proofreading pass), but the information is great (if a little repetitive by the final chapter). I may return to it as I continue in this process, and I would most certainly read it again if I move to a different job. As I begin to design a new grad program, this book was very helpful to me.

    This is a thorough text, and it probably serves better as a reference than as a book to be read straight through. I would have preferred some more examples for the principles expressed.

    A good primer for those of us who don't know a line item from a pop-tart. Slightly more accessible than the Goldstein book on the same subject. A good primer for those of us who don't know a line item from a pop-tart. Slightly more accessible than the Goldstein book on the same subject.

    Well... It was just general knowledge about budget and finance in higher ed. Appropriate title, and glad it's over. Well... It was just general knowledge about budget and finance in higher ed. Appropriate title, and glad it's over.

    Unlike most books I quit reading, I didn't dislike this book...just ran out of ILL renewals. Will try to re-request it and finish it some other time.
