"The work is both frank and optimistic, a common characteristic of Brent Ruben, a practiced author in reference works for higher education leaders. The Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats analysis that constitutes the foreword sets a tone that pervades this book: challenges abound in the current landscape of American higher education, but informed and prepared leaders can respond to these challenges and achieve excellence. A Guide for Leaders in Higher Education succeeds in providing accessible and useful resources to individuals across different leadership roles... As a midpoint between textbook and reference work, it is still successful at both and provides a clear and unbiased background to issues facing current leaders."-- (08/16/2017)
