"This handy reference will help college leaders diagnose institutional maladies and prescribe remedies before it is too late. Expert contributors offer a bird's-eye view of down-to-earth case studies, making this volume a welcome contribution to understanding the delicate balance between higher education's noble purpose and business realities."

"Turnaround offers those concerned about higher education an inventory of the tell-tale signs of vulnerability and practical means for boards and presidents to reverse what can easily become the downward spiral of a college or a university. As Martin and Samels note, turnaround is not easily accomplished, but it can be done. Moreover, the contributors to this volume are some of the most observant students and courageous practitioners of higher education."

"This book is brimming with helpful strategies from experienced presidents and chancellors as well as excellent researchers. It provides a wealth of ideas for innovative, risk-taking presidents who lead fragile institutions to motivate their constituents to achieve stability and enhance quality in the process."

"Martin and Samels and their colleagues have made a useful contribution to a highly topical, and grossly understudied, arena."

"All university leaders will find it a handy reference."
