    "This text is laden with history, theory, and description. It serves as a foundation for the student’s future decisions...I personally believe it gives them a sense of the development of theory over time in the various areas covered. It gives them a basis for forming their own leadership styles, understanding that perhaps they are not a clear cut one size fits all but perhaps a bit of many theories and models. This text gives them this sense of the richness of theory and the realization that there is no one size fits all answers. However, it lays a foundation on which they can predicate future administrative decisions, reforms, and procedures." Patricia Helene Earl, Marymount University
