92 TIPS FROM THE TRENCHES: How to Stay in the Game as an Educational Leader!
Two professional educators, Dr. Marilou Ryder and Dr. Tamerin Capellino share personal and up close tips and stories to help you SURVIVE AND THRIVE as an educational leader. This book aims to make your journey a little easier by offering some effective tools and “Insider Tips” to Stay in the Game! Research suggests there is an impending crisis in store for school leaders. Readers will learn: 
  • How to recognize leadership areas that can hurt them professionally
  • How to target behaviors that can cause followers to turn in a negative direction

As co-authors we have both worked in the trenches, walked in your shoes and know that is fairly easy to trip up at the educational leader-ship line.

Michael Granger
A must-read for anyone applying for a position in academia. Though the book claims to be for those seeking positions in "educational leadership," it's full of good stuff for those applying for other positions as well. And the breakdown on specific interview questions and the "Do" and "Don't" lists apply to any profession. All this packaged in Ryder's clear, direct prose and accompanied by entertaining anecdotes...it's one of the better books on interview prep I've ever read.

Kim Hall
I read the book thoroughly and followed the advice. It helped me improve my introduction letters, which got me several interviews. The interview advice helped get me call-backs. I am now a middle school principal, thanks to this book.I sent an email to the author, thanking her. She wrote back and offered even more advice. I'm very impressed and appreciative of the author. Thank you.

Dani Rush
I am so impressed with all the applicable tips and tricks and the truly relevant information. I had expected the usual vagueness of most books of this genre, but was pleasantly surprised with this serviceable handbook. Rules of the Game will be shared with friends and will have a home on my bookshelf for years.

This is a "must read" for anyone who is in the process of finding a new position in educational leadership or for anyone who has been trying to seek out a new position. Dr. Ryder provides strong recommendations that are supported by relevant scenarios to reinforce understanding. She presents practical and down to earth suggestions along with the hidden rules in the administrative world of education. The "scrimmage notes" section provides a tangible way of organizing one's thoughts prior to the interview. If you are looking to get into the game of administration, make sure that you know the rules! Dr. Ryder knows how the game is played. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to be seen as "The first round draft pick." Get this book and get in the game!
