(Non-Fiction: Library Science) As a supervisor of 20-some students at an academic library, I really enjoyed this book and found many parts useful. I took notes on interview questions, verbiage to use when training, and how to encourage shelvers who make mistakes. I am looking forward to implementing a shelf-reading log and daily log of shelving with my students next semester. I highly recommend this quick, informative read to other supervisors.

Useful information, definitely worth my time, but I would have liked a little more detail on how to run meetings, and how to manage employees when things aren't going as planned. Maybe I should read another book about general management, and what to do when employees have problems with things or when they are upset.
As a supervisor of the adult pages in our library, I found this book to be extremely helpful. There were many great ideas on the many aspects of supervising a library page. I wish I would have had this 5 years ago when I started having the responsibility for the pages.
Great content, but pricey for its length.
