Part I of Winning Grants begins by walking the reader through the grant process. The book breaks down each step of the grant-procuring procedure into checklists that describe each component in great detail. Various types of grants are also described, making the vocabulary of this field accessible. Part II explores a wide range of examples of winning grants, detailing success stories and allowing readers to see actualized grant applications from start to victorious end. Part III is a complete collection of all the worksheets, checklists, and forms used throughout the book. This title is designed to help librarians create and propose successful grant applications. This is a helpful, informative text that will be of great assistance to anyone considering writing a grant. It helps readers create a complete project plan and proposal and provides resources to help them narrow down the best potential donors. The list of active verbs is useful, demonstrating to readers the advantage of using strong, confident language in their proposals. The glossary is also helpful, providing definitions that will assist any novice in navigating the grant-writing process. The checklists are somewhat repetitive, however, going over the same material multiple times. Overall, the resources are valuable and will facilitate streamlining and refining the process of grant winning while teaching grant seekers how to achieve the results they desire.--Heather Pittman. 248p.
