Abstract

Leading good care: the task, heart and art of managing social care (2015) by John Burton is an interesting read and one that I enjoyed. It is by no means a typical textbook and many readers may enjoy it all the more for that fact. There is little in the way of academic references or citations. Instead, integrated throughout the book are four fictional stories based around managers dealing with and responding to a series of management and leadership challenges. Whilst these stories are fictional, they very much draw from the current realities and challenges facing managers and leaders in the social care sector.
