Written by presidents, for presidents, no other book provides first hand insights from leaders in higher education from across the spectrum, from large state universities to smaller private colleges to community colleges.

This books fills the gap by providing insights on how to deal with some of the most pressing day-to-day situations that leaders in higher education face.
