I read his other book What Great Teachers Do differently and enjoyed it. It is a quick read and inspires conversation. As a result, I quickly purchased his other book. Unfortunately, most of the chapters were the same but where it read "teacher" in one book it read "principal" in this one. So obviously I was disappointed that I paid for the same book twice. Pick one book for sure. It is worth it. But not both.

If you have read "What Good Teachers Do Differently' or visa versa don't buy it. It is almost verbatim and a WASTE of money and time.

I could not put this book down. Out of all the educational leadership books I've read, this was a simple read with the most applicable suggestions. It is a resource that I can read over again and get more out of it.

This is an excellent practical guide for making you a more effective school principal. If you like and live this book, then you will also want to share "What Great Teachers Do Differently" with your teaching staff. Anyone who has heard Todd Whitaker speak will be inspired by his down-to-earth methods and insights that make sense, show respect to students and motivate everyone to do an excellent job.

I found Todd Whitaker's, "What Great Principals Do Differently: Fifteen Things that Matter Most," to be an extremely helpful book. The book's easy to follow format provides practical advice for any new administrator to use. I found Whitaker's book to be a fast read, and I believe any principal or assistant principal can apply concepts from this book to their daily work. From getting the best performance from staff and students, to creating a positive climate in the building, Whitaker gives many practical pieces of advice. Whitaker's focus on teachers being key to school improvement is an obvious solution often overlooked. I would recommend any new principal reading this book.

This is one of the better books that I have read on this subject. I will definitely be purchasing more of Todd Whitaker's books. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field of education and an excellent writer. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in administration. I should have known his book was a good one when so many other books reference it!

I liked this book so much I conducted research based off of it. I asked teachers..."Based on your teaching experience, what makes an effective or great principal?" Every answer I was given was covered in this book. This is a must have for principals.
