"Reframing Academic Leadership is the most comprehensive book on the topic and an excellent source of knowledge for faculty and managerial leaders in every college and university. An invaluable resource for students of higher education leadership "
--MAUREEN SULLIVAN, Past President, American Library Association and Association of College and Research Libraries

"Reframing Academic Leadership provides a compassionate understanding of the stresses of leadership in higher education. It offers insights to those who do not fully appreciate why higher education is so hard to 'manage' and validation for those entirely familiar with this world. I recommend it enthusiastically."
--JUDITH BLOCK MCLAUGHLIN, Senior lecturer on education and faculty chair of the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents and the Harvard Seminar for Presidential Leadership, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Bolman and Gallos provide a refreshing view of leadership essential for those assuming presidencies and other important leadership positions in higher education. This work is a bedside reference for aspiring and current leadership in higher education not only in the U.S. but also abroad."
--FERNANCO LEON GARCIA, President, Sistema CETYS Universidad, Baja California, Mexico

"Bolman and Gallos have written a practical, lucid text that brings together illustrative vignettes and robust frameworks for diagnosing and managing colleges and universities. I recommend it to new and experienced administrators who will routinely confront difficult people, structures, and cultures in their workplaces."
--CHRISTOPHER MORPHEW, Dean, School of Education, Johns Hopkins University

"Reframing Academic Leadership is filled with real-world examples from leaders. The book reads like a guide for leading a chamber music rehearsal where one's role constantly shifts from star to servant and where multiple answers may be 'right'."
--PETER WHITE, Dean and Professor of Conducting, Conservatory of Music, University of the Pacific.
