Great if you're British and clueless

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the book was a little broader in scope.

Would you ever listen to anything by Pauline Rowson again?

Sure, but I would check it out more carefully to see how narrow the target audience really is.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fundraising for Your School?

The long list of recommended websites, which was very clumsy in an audio format.

Any additional comments?

This book is written for teachers, administrators, and parent volunteers in the UK who are absolutely new to fundraising and know nothing whatsoever. If that's your situation, definitely give it a listen! Otherwise, don't waste your time.
