'... [it] can lay claim to being one of the best books on the subject in recent years. Without being too long or difficult to read, it manages to cover the broader issues: vision for the school; teamwork; policy-making; and why we have governors. It also deals with bread-and-butter issues such as staff appointemnst and finance.' - Gerald Haigh, Times Educational Supplement
