WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK ... Marilou Ryder

"When I interviewed for superintendent positions, there were no books to help me succeed in an interview. As a result, I was complimented for coming in second. My own experience missing the mark convinced me that educators need a definitive resource that includes winning strategies and insider tips to gain the competitive edge."


- Marilou Ryder, adjunct professor, Brandman University, Huntington Beach, Calif., and AASA member since 2009 on writing RULES OF THE GAME: HOW TO WIN A JOB IN EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP (Delmar, 2012)
