Consultant Tucker and practitioner Mosley keep it practical as they lead new managers through the process of describing yourself and your new position to the staff, getting acquainted with officials and the media, and getting to know your public and patrons. They cover getting to know the staff (including managing by walking around), and closely examine difficult elements of managing personnel, including evaluating performance and maintaining policies. They list and describe such legal issues as affirmative action, the Americans with Disabilities Act, civil rights laws, occupational safety and whistleblower protection, and even take on hiring and firing. They give tips on working with advisory and governing board, show how to work closely with community members and groups, and describe how to manage the inevitable changes. This can also serve as a professional reference or refresher for those who need to bone up on legal issues. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
