* اقتنيت الكتاب من جناح مكتب التربية العربي لدول الخليج (التي عهدت للمترجمين ترجمته ونشرته) في معرض الرياض ر
* الكتاب كما قال ناشروه: مفيد للقياديين في المدارس بل كل من له علاقة بالبيئة التربوية, إذ اعتمدت مؤلفته على تجاربها الميدانية في شتى المجالات, وقدمته بأسلوب أدبي رفيع, بالإضافة إلى استخدام المجاز والاستعارة ما أضفى على الكتاب نوعا من التشويق والجاذبية, وجعله محببا للنفس.

كتاب لطيف وممتع وعملي ..
الكتاب يحتوي على أفكار و طرق يمكن تطبيقها في ميدان إدارة المؤسسات التعليمية .. هو باختصار كيف نجعل بيئة العمل بية إيجابية تحث المعلم على العمل برغبة وعطاء مستمر .
هو موجه للقيادات التعليمية بشكل أساسي .. والفائدة تعم كل قيادي ؛ وكل معلم مربي.
من اللطائف أن الكتاب في تصنيفه وحتى بعض الأمثلة و الاقتباسات كانت تحاكي ( المطعم و الطعام )
الكتاب ممتاز ويعيبه بعض التكرار و ذكرت ذلك المؤلفة في المقدمة ..
تركز الكلام على :
الاهتمام بالصحة البدنية و النفسية - الاتحهات الإيجابية تجاه

I can't tell you how much I think all teachers and administrators should read this book. Talk about easy ways to keep each other excited about our daily work.
Cute -- sometimes too cute. But under it all, good advice for leaders about how to nurture the people you're working with. I can use some of the ideas with my students, PTA and our Student Council could use some of them to recognize teachers' efforts. A good discussion on stress and distress, which I needed.

What I did NOT need were her acronyms: DUCKS, EAGLES, SANE, MEALS, get the idea. Did like DUCKS: dependent upon criticizing and killing success. I know some of them. She sugge

I'm torn -- was the book fantastic because it simply was, or was it fantastic because it was so appropriate for what I needed to hear at the time.

I'll settle on its inherent greatness -- a book of lists and suggestions for how to maintain sanity in a work environment, and truly, how to bolster a group's morale in what may be the most important professional arena of our time -- academia.

A quick read, and a necessity for academics.

I read this book each summer to refocus and set new goals for the next school year. There are so many good ideas and nuggets of truth in this book. Some of the acronyms become too much by the end of the book. When you need a glossary for all the acronyms used, it is too much. But the book is still valuable and allows me to self-evaluate and refocus.

This is a very light hearted book with great ideas and insights. We read this book when I attended Northmont Leadership Academy. If you are looking for suggestions on how to create a positive and fun work environment at school, this is the book for you.

Just completed this book. Very inspiring on the relationships of administrators and teachers. Relationships are very important for success. I think that ALL administrators and teachers should read! This would be a great book study!

It was alright. Has some good ideas in it that I will be implementing. A bit of an annoying read, however. It was a little to "cheerleader-y" for me. That statement probably says a lot about my leadership style. :-)

Okay, I LOVED this book! Her food theme was carried throughout and included many acronyms to carry the theme. I borrowed this book and it is now on my Barnes and Nobel 'wish list' to order. I loved her humor and suggestions.

I can't even finish this book. There is absolutely no substance. And for the record, I did read all the way up to the desserts so I'm not basing my dislike of the book on just a chapter. It was so repetitive and made me feel brain-dead.

Recommends it for: teachers, leaders, school improvement junkies, administrators, KIM
OK- I tend to only read books I like, so my reviews lean towards more stars anyway. But this book is AWESOME. I'm on page 26 and I love it. Neila Connors has a nice, easy style of writing and a plain way of putting things. She's also positive and knows the importance of having FUN.

There is definitely some good stuff in this book, but overall, it was mainly fluid and cutesy word play.

Assigned reading for the Aspiring Leaders program I am attending this year. Interesting information on how effective leaders work. A good read for anyone working in the education profession.

انصح المعلمين والقياديين باقتنائه والمحافظه عليه للعوده له عند الحاجة الى نصيحة او التطوير الذاتي نحن بحاجة الى كتّاب عرب لكتابة مايهم المعلمين ويدفعهم للتطوير وحب مهنتهم لانها من اصعب المهن
