Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Helen Ewing, DHSc, MN, RN (A. T. Still University)
Description: This well written primer for nurse managers and leaders addresses topics important to leadership, such as cultural diversity, power and politics, communication skills, conflict management, change, budgeting, team building, and strategic planning.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the theory and tools for nurse managers to cope in the challenging arena of healthcare. The book meets its objectives through providing a thorough analysis of the primary theory of leadership with helpful exercises and summaries to assist in the application of the principles.
Audience: It is written for nursing managers at all stages and levels of management and may be particularly helpful for new managers as it is full of tips and strategies to implement the theories.
Features: The book is well designed with good use of color, charts, boxes, and pictures to promote easy review and navigation. Excellent summaries of the theories are presented in a clear and easy to understand format. A particularly beneficial component are the case studies presented at the beginning of each chapter and resolved at the conclusion of each chapter, incorporating the theory and principles learned, a very useful technique to enhance critical thinking and analytical skills. Each chapter has clear objectives and summaries, focusing readers on the content. Another unique section of each chapter is the research and literature perspective section, which focuses the book more on an evidence-based approach to learning. The book presents extensive realistic strategies and tips that would be useful for novice managers.
Assessment: This is a well written book, designed for ease of readability with text boxes, examples, and exercises. The theory is introduced in a clear, organized manner with examples to illustrate the content, in addition to useful summaries. This will be a valuable resource for new nurse managers, and will assist in their transition into leadership roles.
