The Challenge of Library Management: Leading with Emotional Engagement by Wyoma Vanduinkerken is a good read for any librarian in desire of developing their leadership skills. The book is comprised of steps to making lasting change in the library. I rated this book four out of five stars.

There were some useful things in this book, but for the most part it felt like it was intended for a much less experienced audience - which is a bit confusing, since a less experienced audience probably wouldn't be in a position to institute changes like the ones discussed in the book.

While I was able to take away some ideas from this book, the prose was dense and technical. For a book dealing with emotional engagement, it fell short on warmth and invigoration that I was hoping to take away as inspiration and apply at my own library.

This is not a fun read--I finished this book for class, and while I found many points to be of great potetial utility, it was not "enjoyable" by any means. But such is the nature of books assigned for education/library classes.

The title is misleading; it should be _Change Management in Libraries_. Of course, I probably wouldn't have read it with that title! I liked this and got some good insights.
