"Eble has drawn on his 25 years as a faculty member and administrator to write The Art of Administration, which he describes as 'quite simply a handbook for administrators.' In addressing 'the problems, vexations, frustrations, and satisfactions' of college administrators, Eble offers common-sense guidance on managing the daily workload, budgeting time, short-range and long-range planning, and personnel decisions. With well-chosen words and occasional touches of humor, he shows administrators how to get satisfaction out of a job many regard as 'grubby'".--The Chronicle of Higher Education. Contents: 1.
