Amazon Book Reviews Accurate

Don't let the review about this being an advertisement dissuade you. It's inaccurate. Not sure they even listened or read it. There's rarely any mention of the attorney's law firm.

Instead it's 18 chapters explaining how to successfully start your nonprofit and keep it going without legal pitfalls for years to come! This book exceeded my expectations. I encourage you to give it a shot. It won't disappoint.

Ad for the Attorney to sell services

This is just an advertisement for the attorney who wrote the book. I thought I was buying a step by step guide.
