A broad overview of responsibilities of a library manager. Some chapters go deep while others merely scratch the surface. Overall a good jumping-off point for topics that library managers should be familiar with.

It is definitely apparent that this book was written by multiple authors. There were some excellent chapters and then there were some terrible chapters, many of which were written by the editor.

Super informative and really easy to read. Chapters were succinct and helpful. Barely noticed I was reading a textbook at times :)
