Review:

From the opening chapter on 'Power and Politics' to the 'Guidelines for Success'...this wonderful, witty book tells it like it is. (Educational Leadership)

...tough, sensible advice and insights. (The Executive Educator)

This volume is packed with more practical advice and wisdom than can be covered in a brief review. It is essential reading for prospective and seasoned administrators, teachers, and school board members. It presents administration as it is in reality, in the trenches. (Aasa Professor)

All school administrators...should read this book...this hard-hitting and ideal-shattering guide to school administration is filled with practical advice and tips. (Phi Delta Kappan)
