"The book is unique in that it addresses the socioemotional stages of professional transitions...this was an easy read that had me highlighting passages on almost every page or citing relevant quotes I want to use or share with others. The material is well integrated so you can see the more global picture of administration, yet allows the reader to focus and actively reflect on the very real scenarios used as examples."

-- Michelle Kocar, Principal

"I found myself making stars in the margins or writing YES!, Been There, Done That, I can relate!, Interesting, Good Suggestion, True..."

-- Ann Porter, 2002 NAESP National Distinguished Principal

"This user's manual for new and seasoned principals covers both inter- and intrapersonal issues faced by administrators, including the transition from teacher to principal, leadership skills, organizational culture, and how administrators can provide leadership while keeping accountability in perspective."

-- Curriculum Connections, Spring 2006
