Book received promptly. Interesting book and met my expectations. A relatively small book for the price but just about vfm.

This book is a collation of advice and anecdotes from people with long leadership careers in academic and research institutions. The stories are often amusingly familiar and appropriately telling. And, beyond that, they have the important function of highlighting all the vital aspects the role encompasses - i.e. all the things a leader or aspiring leader in an academic or research institution should consider. Both light-hearted and informative - I'd recommend it as a guide for a new leader or a gift for an existing one.

Herding Cats is structured well for dipping in or scouring. I enjoyed the anonymity of the contributors, all named but none referenced against their quotes, which made me wonder which culture and institution they were from. Worth a look.
