Book Review: Library Leadership Your Way

The following book review was written by Jeanette Castle, University Librarian at the University of the West of Scotland for the Talis Informer.

Library Leadership Your Way, Jason Martin. Available on the ALAstore here, or on Amazon.com here.

This is a book to read through in full and at just 80 pages in length, it will not take you too long. It is also a book that you can go back to and dip into sections to help reassess your leadership thinking and personal leadership motivation when challenges in your professional practice arise. Jason Martin, associate dean of the James E Walker Library at Middle Tennessee State University, gives you the opportunity for reflective practice and supports your thinking by presenting a variety of key theory and leadership models alongside the workbook element. Jason condenses the theories down to the core learning required and acts like a leader himself, providing meaning to his readers. He also provides graphical interpretations on theory to clarify sometimes-complex thinking. This is invaluable in this type of book where theory and practice are so intertwined.
