For Cap in Hand, Gail has interviewed cancer researchers, hospital foundation chieftains, humanitarian aid veterans and sector observers, and used data from tax filings, charity audits, international reports and policy analysis to give us a full view of charity in Canada.

The results are startling.

Her research paints a picture of a Canadian sector that generates more money than the entire GDP of Pakistan. Yet, as the book shows, the charitable sector in Canada is rife with inequity, under no obligation to deal with the urgent problems our country faces and operates with very little scrutiny.

Drawing on more than 25 years of experience working with a broad range of charities, Gail has produced an insightful book that is essential reading for anyone who gives to charities, trying to make charity more impactful or concerned about the effect charity is having on the people who need its help the most.

Review - 'Smart and successful clients have listened to Gail's advice for years. So should we all' - Bob Penner, President & CEO, Stategic Communications Inc.

Review #2 - 'A necessary book, a needed investigation.' - Bill Tieleman, West Star Communications.
