Read more excerpts from the review:
"This book uses interesting case studies to illustrate a variety of topics in leadership and decision making in nursing, ranging from the history of decision making in the profession to media and financial decisions.
The book provides a different approach to the idea of nursing decision making. Instead of simply noting how it should be done, the authors use case studies to demonstrate how decisions are developed and reflect on the success and possible problems in these areas. The book is interesting and easy to understand. The reflections and case studies are an excellent way to present this material.
I found the book interesting and insightful. It would be a good tool for any nurse leader and provides excellent background information for those embarking on a leadership career."
