Summary

Praise for the Previous Editions


"The author brings in management wisdom from the world outside laboratory animal medicine and veterinary medicine. As a result, there is a rich mixture of the experience of a seasoned professional and the theoretical framework used by schools of management …. I recommend this book to managers and laboratory animal specialists at any stage of their careers."
—Franklin M. Loew, DVM, PhD, DACLAM, JAVMA, Vol. 222, No. 6, 2003

"… This book is a good informational resource for any new manager to the field of laboratory management. The information is presented in a way that will keep your interest and stimulate you to think how it can benefit you and the facility in which you work."
—Susan K. Cutter, BS, RVT, RLATG, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA, LAMA Review
