Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marten M. Kernis, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This book offers practical advice, guidelines, and strategies for newly appointed health care managers. It is organized around three themes (essential leadership skills, basic management skills, and people skills) and is supplemented by appendixes and case studies.
Purpose: This purpose is to provide easily accessible strategies to address common problems and dilemmas faced by new health care managers. The objective is worthwhile in consideration of the usual practice of promoting competent professionals to managerial positions often without administrative experience or specific training. The handbook has the potential for being a valuable asset in facilitating the transition.
Audience: The book, based on the author's extensive experience as a human resources consultant, is written for new health care managers, but it easily can be adapted for use by new managers in virtually any industry or profession and by students of management.
Features: Black-and-white line drawings, an extensive use of lists, superb appendixes, a helpful glossary of terms, and health-related case studies provide excellent supplementation to a well-written text. However, there is no index and the table of contexts is only adequate. The bibliography is limited to a dozen books offered as additional readings.
Assessment: The handbook is an excellent, important, and helpful contribution to any manager's library. It will provide insights to new managers and reaffirm or modify styles of experienced managers. Its focus is on the application of principles that are well-founded in the research literature.
