Editorial Reviews

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.

The Amazon version of the Organizational Behavior textbook does not include access to the Self Assessment Library or SAL, that some courses require. Purchasing this gives a paper version, cd-rom, and the online SAL version if it is needed for your class. If not do not bother with this book. That said the textbook plus this addon new was still wayyyyyy cheaper than buying used at my bookstore. If you purchase the Organizational Behavior textbook used this book will provide a code for it. Buying this from amazon is cheaper than purchasing the code separately from Pearson Higher Ed., the publisher of this book.

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.

I purchased the Self-Assessment Library for a major paper assignment in my management course. The book was reasonably priced on amazon and being a amazon prime member gave me a discount/free shipping. I like that the book comes with a CD in the back, which allows you to take the assessments on your computer instead of in the book. The calculations of the assessments can be tricky, so I would suggest using the CD to take the assessments. It also comes with an access code that provides premium online content.

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!

I purchased this book for my Business Ethics class I had a semester ago or so and it was great! It goes into details based off what you use as an answer to tell you more about yourself that you probably werent aware of. Great book to get to know yourself better.

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.
