“Bolman and Deal's book is profoundly important text for those learning to lead, principal and teacher alike. The authors have presented richly crafted examples of life in the school, both from the teacher and the principal perspective, and introduces the reader to the fundamental principles of leadership. The narratives offer an authentic, real-world picture of learning to lead that takes into account all those individuals most directly implicated in and impacted by leadership at the school level." -Patricia M. Jenlink, Professor of Educational Leadership
