This text is required for the Leadership course in my BSN curriculum. Do not even consider buying this book, even if you are required to for a class, because 1) you will never read it or 2) you will attempt to read it and either stop immediately or learn nothing. It is the wordiest, most confusing, most disorganized mess ever published. In fact, I can't believe anyone agreed to publish it. Let me refer you to one paragraph from the text that I found particularly ridiculous, so you can be assured of the accuracy of my review:

"The challenge of this issue of leadership and communication, persuasion, and negotiation revolves around who is change what, when, how, with whom, and with what outcome? How can the leaders (the "who") who are to implement holistic care - especially spiritual care (the "what") - throughout the nursing organization somehow (the "how) involve all nursing professionals (the "with whom") so that nurses will be able to provide spiritual care to patients (the "with what outcome")?

That is a stand-alone paragraph, not part of a paragraph, and the rest of the text is equally confusing (at least I assume it is, because I could only make myself read a small portion of it). I have never read such absurdity in my life, and I am simply appalled that the faculty of my program selected this text for use.

I bought this book because it was required for one of my nursing classes. The book came in good shape and I was pleased with that. The content of the book itself....is a bit dry, long winded, and to be desired. I don't feel that it complimented my learning and I would not buy this book if it was not otherwise required for the class.

I'm sure these book are great but I only bought them because they were required when I was in nursing school. This is not what I would consider everyday reading enjoyment but they served their purpose well.

This book is wordy but comprehensive, introducing many issues facing nurse manager.

Graphically, it's pleasing to the eye. If you read quickly, it's not too bad.

Most useful are the references, pointing towards comprehensive coverage of many of the book's topics.

You might consider retaining for future reference after class is done.

It's a good resource and required reading, neither love it,nor hate it. As far as textbooks go the reading "flow" is easy, good. Some of these textbooks can be very technical (full of medical terms, and unnecessary jargon) and have horrible flow making it hard to read, but this was good.

I was looking for a book for my nursing class. We were told on the day of our final exam that the course was starting a week after our finals. It was a very short notice. I looked for a low-cost fast shipping book and i found this. My book arrived just on time for my class.

It is ok for a college book I would much rather be reading a genealogy book or juicy christian novel.

This book was very repetitive and not well-organized. It should be about half as long as it is. The diagrams were not helpful either. A lot of the case studies offered no solutions or solutions that you could have thought of yourself, or solutions that wouldn't work in the real world.
