Dealing with non-profit Board of Directors
Question: is there a book/section/something that specifically addresses dealing with a non-profit's board of directors? Or boards of directors in general?


Not-for-Profit Boards
Doug Wilson
A classic: Peter F. Drucker's, "Managing the Nonprofit Organization." (Available in audiobook as well.)
Also, Jim Collins' recent monograph "Good to Great and the Social Sectors: A Monograph to Accompany Good to Great" applies his five "Good to Great" concepts to the social sector.
Bobb Biehl and Ted Engstrom, "The Effective Board Member: Secrets of Making a Significant Contribution to Any Organization You Serve" -- originally published as "Increasing Your Boardroom Confidence.

Board Research Book

It's not clear exactly what you're looking for in this context, but for a summary of academic research into boards, I recommend "Strategic Leadership: Theory and Research on Executives, Top Management Teams, and Boards" by Finkelstein, Cannella, and Hambrick (Oxford University Press, 2009, ISBN-10: 0195162072).
