Review

Here's what the reviewers are saying...

 

This new emphasis on the ubiquity of ‘management’ at all levels of social work practice…gives this text the widest possible applicability to the current and future social work profession, and to those who teach at all levels and concentrations of social work education, both in the academy and in fields of practice.” 

Nancy W. Veeder, Boston College

4.0 out of 5 stars Needed for class, will keep it for reference April 6 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I needed the book for class; found myself reading it and using it as a reference for other classes as well. It was a well-written text book. I purchased an e-version using it with Kindle on my IPad. Of all the different ereaders I used this semester (purchased all ebooks) Kindle was the most efficient. No delays or problems using highlighting or search functions. Overall a good experience.
