I've been writing proposals (alone or in small groups) according to a format preferred by my Boss, added to over time by several people. I suspect our winning bids and proposals are due to our competitive pricing, because our proposals bare only a vague resemblance to what Hamper includes here.

I found many elements of the book very helpful, especially breaking down what needs to happen in terms of research and preparation before writing begins.

I wish that the team had gone into more detail about some elements-- as a creative person, my knowledge of business processes is sort of vague. I also noticed that in the four years since its last revision many resources have changed their names and web addresses, and at least one has ceased to exist. Most of the research sources are expensive database subscription solutions, otherwise easily accessible through the public library. The most glaring problem with the resources attached to the book (downloadable through McGraw Hill's website) is that they're rough drafts of finished products. There are editor and author production notes in red which should have been removed prior to publishing. A few tables look like they are hand drawn. I actually reproduced several printed tables as Word tables to clean them up and make them usable.

In the end, there is very helpful content here, but be aware that it is dated and once you actually are working with the information included here, it needs lots of adapting to fit individual work situations.

This is one of the books I bought to get me up to speed on RFPs - something I knew nothing about. I like to read multiple sources when I'm learning something new, but if had to pick only book this would be it. It's well written, gives a solid process for making the bid/no-bid decision, and has forms, examples and checklists throughout. I pretty much adopted Hamper's 9-step process, with some enhancements and modifications gleaned from other sources. It will be a frequent point of reference.

This book has topped the first edition by filling in all the left out material and updated all current material to make it the "go to book" for proposal writing. The downloadable forms are excellent and saves me and my staff many hours rather than starting from scratch, and that alone is worth the price of just the book. It is written at a level that all can understand. The ebook is great, for my people are on the road alot and can constantly keep up the material. I can not wait for their web site with more examples and interactions. I see nothing left out of great significance. I have had my entire national sales force purchase this book for their proposal writing on selling our products and services. Most people think that proposal books are only for grants, and the like. But the majority of proposals are from sales people in selling their products to their target audiences. This book excels at that. The American Marketing Association has backed this book at a meeting for the reasons just sited and more. So far, my expections have been far exceeded.

This is a must have book and also to keep in your reference library.
