Index

"The authors frame the chapters in a logical and clear organization so that a busy superintendent can pick up the book after several days and regain context and content. They provide solid research and real-life context to their work through examples and vignettes."

The School Administrator, February 2006

"Sullivan and Glanz have written an integrative book that encompasses the values of educational leadership, educational psychology, and communication skills."
