When such a book as this is sorely needed, it's a disappoint when it doesn't deliver. Although the book touches upon most of the topical issues in nursing leadership and management, it fails to provide the depth of understanding needed for leaders and managers. This might be alright if it provided adequate case studies, examples and resources from which the aspiring nurse could study and learn independently or in consort with others. However, it doesn't. I think the problem is intensified by the lack of emphasis on the fact that to truly be an effective nursing leader and manager, one must continue to learn and grow. Black box thinking doesn't work and is not applicable to an arena that requires cogent decision making, and responsibility for others. In these times when nurses are quickly educated, licensed, recruited, freed to practice, then very quickly launched into managerial positions simply due to demand, they are too frequently inclined to fall back on the thin elements of their nursing textbooks that failed to mention that much more knowledge is needed - and this is one of those books.
