    This book reads like amiable corporate leadership horseshit for the most part Like most leadership texts the book's instruction is largely predicated on an abstract overly simplistic conceptual model of behavior In this case it's the Personnel Success Model a Venn Diagram designed to evaluate the intersection of School Vision Personal Vision and Personal Skills It gets gussied up with a lot of hot button phrases and best practices that appear throughout current educational literature but ultimately almost every chapter's take away boils down to treating people with respect soliciting and valuing employee feedback empowering subordinates to become leaders themselves and giving teachers trust and autonomy to do their jobs The book contains a few case studies and some basic practical prescriptions for best practices For example I learned that if one of my teachers is a miserable shithead who complains about his job all the time and is mean to his kids I might not want to renew his contract Look it's fine The book doles out the information it's supposed to but I can promise you that no principal in a Title I high school is taking a break from putting out all the myriad fires that spring up during his day to think Fuck me I sure wish I could remember Sorenson's Venn Diagram today Surely that would be the solution for my 9th graders' functional illiteracyI guess I'm glad I read it but it's not one that's going to hang out on the bookshelves in my office

    The information in this book is relatively outdated multiple references to NCLB has strong undercurrents of unconscious racial bias and homophobia and clearly manifests patriarchal leadership tropes I approached this book with a very open mind ready to learn and I was immediately displeased by the frustrating fictional case studies While the majority of the legal and policy based information is still relevant the way in which it was written was uite off putting for me

    The 2009 edition by Sorenson and Goldsmith is good overview on the principal's role for someone new to educational leadership
