Great information about management and leadership in libraries. Presents past management theories and allows opportunities to work through hypothetical situations of today using various approaches. ( )

I'm going to start this review by saying that I'm going to talk about why this book was really redundant and awful and I didn't learn anything. First, it was really redundant and repeated itself. Second, it said the same thing over and over and I didn't learn anything. Last, it was pretty pitiful and it makes me wonder if maybe more librarians need to write textbooks to weed out all the other librarians who can't write but somehow get a contract to write one anyway. I'll conclude by saying that, in summation, this book was redundant and awful and not representative of how anyone should manage anything. I'll elaborate this mundane point via a nondescript venn diagram that shows in a visual way how I didn't quite finish this textbook, but I'm labeling it 'read' because I got through enough to realize it was awful. And redundant. (see: Figure 1, Vague Venn Diagram). ( )

An appalling mix of '90s management jargon and bad grammar. It's a chore fighting my way through each assigned chapter, and when they are over I feel like all I got from it is the loss of an hour of my life.

If you are a teacher, please do not force this on your students. ( )

Was a great read for dealing with the management of research institutes and their employees.
