Review:

′[This is] a very accessible book that is written in an engaging and fluid style...Its strong points are the leadership voices that flow through the book and are both captivating and informative and do so much to link theories and ideas to practice...In summary this an excellent book, well worth the read′ -
Professor Brent Davies,

′This book makes an important contribution to the literature on educational leadership and should help to shift the emphasis from rational and accountability-related models to an explicit recognition of the importance of emotions to effective leadership′ - Educational Management Administration and Leadership

′[This book] contains a wealth of case studies and vignettes to help leaders be more aware of the ways in which emotion impacts on their practice, and to develop a productive and sustainable set of emotional responses, experiences and leadership tools′ - Headteacher Update

′The format is succinct and the language accessible so that the book directly engages with the reader...Given the increasing demands placed on the role of leaders and the importance of both developing and sustaining leaders for education, this book is timely in recognising the challenges facing the sector...Aspiring and emerging leaders in education and beyond will find this book informative and enlightening′ - Management in Education
