Barr and Dowding's 4th edition offers a well-structured and comprehensive experience for health professionals and students wishing to consolidate, or further develop and apply their leadership skills to clinical practice. The book covers important elements of leadership from exploring the nature and theory of leadership, through ethical, legal and professional aspects before arriving at leadership for change. Along the way, diversity, conflict, emotional intelligence and organisational life, among others, are encountered in a book that is enriched by case studies and reflective activities.

This new edition will encourage students and health professionals to develop keen self-awareness about what it means to be an effective leader in health care.

-- Dr Sue Gledhill, Academic, ACU, Australia

A refreshingly readable, engaging, comprehensive review of contemporary leadership in healthcare. I will be recommending this book to both aspiring and experienced healthcare leaders on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. It is clearly written, logically structured and addresses complex issues in an accessible, personable manner.

-- Julie Crane, Senior Lecturer, University of Liverpool
