If this is your first time buying the book then it's a great read. But for me, a waste of money. I have the 6th Edition and expected this new one to have new info. IT DOESN'T!!!!! Same book, different cover.

I've sent people to prison for lesser crimes than what the publishers of this garbage are getting away with. It's pathetic that my department mandates this book for promotion to sergeant. $122 for 360 pages of mind-numbing nonsense. What a racket.

Were it not a required reading for a class, I would not recommend this short and drawn out book that provides you with the same common sense information that you would receive from working in any job. The author apparently had to meet a certain amount of pages in order to publish this book, therefore there is a lot of jibber jabber on nothing.

Only reason to buy this book is if you're being tested on it. They've got you by the balls on this one.

this book should be called Basic leadership skills complicated x100. Seriously good concepts but could be cut in half. ,

These Books are written by idiots that sit behind desks and haven't worked the street in decades. Why make it sooooo complicated to read. There is no way in hell that people actually think this way !!!

Yes, the subject matter is extremely dry but like it or not, Iannone is the gold standard in police supervision books. Most test makers draw from this book more than any other when it comes to supervision theory and the concepts show up over and over in police promotional exams. The book is frontloaded with the most useful concepts and the first couple of chapters must be slowly read. Other parts of the book can be skimmed but it is still a great reference. The book was shipped quickly and the price was cheaper on Amazon then anywhere else. I see little need to buy the newest edition (unless specific pages or chapters of this book are referenced by some study class you are taking) since the supervisory concepts are mostly unchanged - in fact I bought the 7th Edition. This book purchase will be a more than worthwhile investment if you get promoted. Good luck.

while reading this book, I literally wanted to stab myself in the eye with a pencil....it was so mind numbing to read this book. Horrible read....I can't believe our police dept makes us read this book for promotions....

I had to get this book as part of a promotion exam for my department. Not only is it completely overpriced, the long chapters just go on and on oftentimes repeating the same information over and over again. I attempted to complete the review questions to make a sort of study guide and there were several times where the answers were not even written in the book (and I have the electronic version so I could search for specific phrases). I found this book mind numbing, entirely too expensive and entirely too long...lots of words not saying too much.
