"At the very time that good superintAndents are burning out from the complexities and demands of the job, and at the very time that leadership by superintAndents is all the more crucial for reform, comes a book that inspires and points the way to a new superintAndency. This is a book that captures the present multifaceted nature of the superintAndency while lifting it to new, exciting, achievable heights." (Michael G. Fullan, dean, Faculty of Education, University of Toronto)
