Review:

"One might well say that Management and the Arts is the cumulative use of cross-sector common sense, resources, and wisdom to influence the behavior of the next generation of nonprofit arts managers." -- Will Maitland Weiss, Executive Director, Arts & Business Council of New York

"Management and the Arts is a comprehensive introduction to those business principles everyone involved in the arts should know.  In addition to using it in my classes, I have recommended it to arts managers as an excellent resource." -- Wendi Hassan, Lecturer, Utah State University, and Education and Outreach Coordinator, Cache Valley Center for the Arts

"William Byrnes' book is obviously one of only a few books touching all aspects of arts management today." --Dirk Heinze, Arts Management Network, Germany
