Editorial Reviews

Paul Young
"While principals work to identify the balance between management and instructional leadership, to initiate adaptive change, a third component should also be studied: leadership. Ramsey blends practical business ideas, good practice, and common sense ideas into lessons that all principals should find useful in their work. "

Don Draayer
"Once again Ramsey, like a wise mentor, cuts to the heart of leadership. Every reader who likes new ideas, appreciates fresh perspective, and seeks core truths about leadership will include this book in his or her library and recommend it to colleagues. "

"This book tackles the everyday problems that we all face—and it is accomplished with style. Topics are addressed from A-Z, complete with eye-catching titles—titles that make the reader want to turn to the next chapter. Although packed with lots of information, I found myself chuckling over specific anecdotes, solutions, and straight-to-the point advice. The book is reader friendly and very applicable. "
