I found it helpful as a reference for best practices that go beyond Quickbooks accounting AND as a "how-to" manual with straightforward, step-by-step instructions to set up the chart of accounts, the item list and other specific QB tools. I'd recommend this as an office reference for churches of all sizes and accounting systems." Lois Wallenhost "We are transitioning from Quicken to Quickbooks and Lisa's book has been outstanding. Her book has been extremely helpful in assisting me in making the transition from Quicken to Quickbooks. As well as understanding the differences for a church trying to utilize a commerce-focused product (Quickbooks) as a religious organization. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!" James Underwood "This is a great resource to have by your side if you are setting up QB or already using QB's. It is very easy to understand and explained in detail. I also was able to communicate with Lisa via email, and she was a huge blessing! Very prompt and thorough in answering any questions I had. I would highly recommend this book to all users that need to get a better feel for the essentials of using QB's. There is also a handbook you can purchase that will be helpful as a companion guide to the book as well." Michelle Vandehey"

In the early twentieth century, down the Ohio River from Pittsburgh, the Jones & Laughlin Steel Company built one of the largest mills in the world and a town to go with it. Aliquippa was a beacon and a melting pot, pulling in thousands of families from Europe and the Jim Crow south. The J&L mill, though dirty and dangerous, offered a chance at a better life. It produced the steel that built American cities and won World War II and even became something of a workers’ paradise. But then, in the 1980’s, the steel industry cratered. The mill closed. Crime rose and crack hit big. But another industry grew in Aliquippa. The town didn’t just make steel; it made elite football players, from Mike Ditka to Ty Law to Darrelle Revis. Pro football was born in Western Pennsylvania, and few places churned out talent like Aliquippa. Despite its troubles—maybe even because of them—Aliquippa became legendary for producing football greatness. A masterpiece of narrative journalism, Playing Through the Whistle tells the remarkable story of Aliquippa and through it, the larger history of American industry, sports, and life. Like football, it will make you marvel, wince, cry, and cheer.
