A necessary read if you want to get promoted.

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.
