GROW – How to Take Your D.I.Y. Project and Passion to the Next Level & Quit Your Job! By Eleanor C. Whitney, MPA

(Microcosm) The “self” part of a self-help book for D.I.Y. makes sense, but the guidebook would seem to betray the ‘do it yourself” part, especially considering the bogus nature of most self-help manuals. But this is a tremendously practical guide to fonancial planning, fundraising, grant writing, self-motivating, collaborating, marketing and sustaining enthusiasm after the honey moon is over. What this really reminds me of are some of the simple “how-to” guides that appeared in the Feminsint underground press in the late 60s and early 70s explaining the practical ins and outs of how to get things done, and the best Microcosm guides have always captured this friendly, helpful hand spirit.
