David Bauer's "How To" Grants Manual has guided the step-by-step winning grants process of our faculty for the past six years. In that time, we have moved from about $1.5 million in external support to over $12 million. The process described in this book was a large factor in this increase. (James E. McLean )

Bauer's manual has become a standard in its field. If a library can only purchase one book on developing grant proposals, this one should be at or very near the top of the list. (Library Journal (On Fourth Edition) Library Journal (On Fourth Edition) )

When I was Dean of the School of Education and Human Services at Oakland University, we created a faculty fellows group with a faculty administrator and David Bauer as consultant. After about 18 months of using the processes outlined in The "How To" Grants Manual, external grant funding increased from approximately $500,000 to $1.2M in 2009. While external funding is an important measure, the real achievement was a change in the academic culture of the School. There was an increase in the number of grant applications as well as the number of faculty writing grants. The step by step system presented in the book provides faculty teams with a model that keeps them working together to accomplish the outcome—a new grant application! (Mary Otto )
