He is the author of “Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential,” the Best-selling title in the history of Tufts University Press. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said that the book “deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto.” His newest book is, “Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World.” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has described it as “An Apollo program for American philanthropy and the nonprofit sector”. Dan is a featured weekly contributor to the Harvard Business Review online.
