In a profession notorious for its lack of training for administrative jobs, this book is as close to a textbook as we are likely to come. -- Linda Ray Pratt, executive vice president and provost, University of Nebraska 2006-2012 If you've ever needed candid, practical administrative advice, read this book.

Enthusiastically recommended. -- Nancy A. Marlin, professor and provost emerita, San Diego State University
