"The book is a good start for librarians interested in learning more about the issues current leaders face in the academic library. Even for existing leaders, there are interesting takes on the use of space and ways to encourage leadership development among existing managers. . . . This book does a good job of illuminating some of the more nuts-and-bolts issues facing academic libraries currently and in the years to come." - College & Research Libraries
