I found the book to be really interesting and provide insights into both practice and educational change--I think it is a really nice edition to the field of educational change--in addition I think the idea of social networks is growing and this book helped me to better understand their role in how schools/districts change.

I found this book to be very useful in both my work as an educator as well as my own practice. I found it to be clear and straightforward with information I could readily understand and apply. I think that social networks will play a more important role in education

VERY interesting book--gave me a new perspective on education and educational change. I found it to be easy to read and loaded with great insights for teachers, principals, and professors in education departments. This should be mandatory reading for educators who want to make real change!
