Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Vicki Ann Moss, DNSc, MS, BSN, RN(University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: "This is a compilation of personal and professional stories from many of nursing's leaders. They are called Edge Runners, "individuals who combine knowledge, commitment, and will to push their ideas forward in the face of resistance."
Purpose: "The purpose of this book is to inspire other nurses in their personal journeys by reading these remarkable leadership stories.
Audience: "It is intended for all nurses, but it would also be appropriate for any healthcare provider or person involved or interested in today's healthcare environment.
Features: The book includes the writings of 11 nursing leaders, such as Leah Curtin, Imogene King, and Richard Henry Carmona, a nurse and an MD who became the 17th U.S. Surgeon General.
Assessment: This is a wonderful book that really captured my attention. Each of the personal stories is awe-inspiring and made me feel very proud to be a nurse. Through this book, we truly get to know these remarkable leaders. In the words of Sister Callista Roy, "the book fills the reader with joy, pride, and inspiration." The book is a steal at $29.95 (list price). I would highly recommend it for any nurse or healthcare provider.
