This practical guide to management for any level of information professional is full of great tips and pertinent references on all sorts of skills and concepts. The text is split into four main parts, starting out with basic management concepts and issues such as diversity and staffing. Then it moves through knowledge and skill areas like marketing, decision making, planning, delegation, performance, communication, motivation, and leadership. The third part focuses on managing people, money, technology, and facilities; and the final part of the book deals with career development and ideas for the future. Easy to read and comprehend, the book would be a great resource for library classes and those interested in library management and administration.--Donaldson, Christy Copyright 2008 Booklist
