The Handbook of Board Governance

This may the last installment for my review of The Handbook of Board Governance: A Comprehensive Guide for Public, Private, and Not-for-Profit Board Members. With the current post, I provide comments on Part 8 of the bookGovernance of Different Forms… a kind of catch-all for nonprofits, non-North American firms, startups, small-caps, and family firms… whatever didn’t easily fit in prior parts.

As I have indicated before, The Handbook of Board Governance is one of the most popular collections of articles of interest in the field of corporate governance.
