"...sensible advise about a range of practical topics and the HoD who reads it will be better placed to facilitate informed decision making. ...the average HoD will actually be doing rather well to keep their head above water...what a shame that most of them will not find the time to read and reflect upon this valuable book, were they able to, maybe our university departments would be better led." - LTSN Reviews
