“It is an astonishing thing to read a book about fundraising—fully not expecting it to be personal, honest and touching—only to become emotionally invested after the first page. Linker brings us on a journey from his promising musical career into his immersion into fundraising and all the stumbling blocks that go with it. His charm and humor make this story fun and deeply relatable.”
Chris Trapper, Singer/Songwriter
