This book will help any librarian effectively gather and use data to support one's arguments to decision makers. Dando gives great information about how to make your case and get results using quantitative and qualitative data gathered through surveys and focus groups, among other methods. The book draws on personal experience and is written in a nontechnical manner. Checklists are included for surveys, focus groups, and data presentation, along with sample surveys (public library patrons, high-school students and teachers, and school faculty) and a sample of survey results for data presentation. Whether they are seasoned leaders, librarians seeking to prove to others the importance of a new idea or change, or students learning how to use surveys and focus groups to support decision making, most librarians will find value in this book.--Marcus, Sara Copyright 2010 Booklist
