This is by far and away the best book on supervision that I have ever read. I have used this book extensively to train first line supervisors and mid level managers in Eastern Europe to develop their management skills. The book effectively condenses the management courses I took during a 2 year MBA program into a well-organized manual. The book is easy to read, to the point, and replete with examples. It captures the essential concepts on the margins of each page and provides a review at the end of the chapter. Moreover, it offers case studies and self-assessment tests to reinforce concepts.
This book is an excellent resource for private study, professional programs and universities. My only regret is that this text or its companion, "Management Today" were not utilized in any of my undergraduate or graduate management courses.

CSULB text for a vocational teaching credential- BA in Professional Studies. It is well written, easy to read and offers some recent insights into management theory compared to some of the more dated resources you may expect in a management class. 'Supervision Today!' includes chapter summaries as well as written assignments that allow the reader to explore both their own experiences as well as the technical material offered within. I am not aware if a student manual is available, or DVD accessories as we were not required to purchase anything else for the class.

Well it's an alright text book I guess, it was for a class... you will probably never need this book seeing how the class was a few years ago and doubtless there is a newer version.

I actually had fun reading this book. The concepts are presented in a clear manner with many cases discussed that actually helps apply what you are learning. I also enjoyed it visually with great graphics and at the end of each chapter there are crosswords!!! Overall, it's a great read - even if you're not a supervisor or in an administrative role.

This book should be called Common Sense for dummies. Anyone who has ever had a job should already know everything in this book. It is super easy to understand. Lets just say I read about one third of it and still got an A in this class.

Just buy this edition! For $20 you can get the entire book with minimal changes! I think only one case study we went over in my 3 week class was different! But I just took a picture of it from a class mate!

Book came in fast enough.
Needed the book for a summer class.
Bought it because it's a book that I will most likely use later in the future
