From the Publisher

Written by the most well-respected educator in the field, this skills-focused introduction to supervision captures the reality of supervising in the 1990s. Supervision Today! takes students on the job by first explaining the job of supervisor, and then featuring examples--both throughout the book and in a supplementary video--of how supervisors operate in real situations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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 product was in good shape when it came to me. Also it arrived on time even before the end of the arrival date. I did not miss any class nor any assignment as a result of delay and the arrival time. The person that packaged it also did a good job, the book had no dents nor marks. It was like new.

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!

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 bought this for college and it's great. It might just be about supervision, but it also has basic information any first year student for management will appreciate.
