This book is a well threaded conversation of leaders' stories in the academic realm that challenges the reader to see academic leadership through quite different, but well complemented, and concomitantly reconciled perspectives or "frames." It covers many aspects of effective leadership applied to the unique and controversial academic setting, specifically in higher education.
It Is both descriptive and prescriptive. It offers the reader a holistic view of academic leadership and prescribes from complex university politics to the simplicity of keeping hydrated. Also encourages the reader to deep self reflection on his/her own leadership style, challenges and growth opportunities.
A great read.

What did you love best about Reframing Academic Leadership?
The book provides case study examples to illustrate the principles at work.
What did you like best about this story?
Not applicable; this is non-fiction.
What does Kris Koscheski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The reader did a fine job, but again, as this is non-fiction, it is difficult to find the experience enhanced by the narration.
Any additional comments?
Because this is a non-fiction, how-to kind of leadership book, I will want to review the book in print form. It was very helpful for me to listen to it on my commute so that I could glean major principles and ideas. I'm sure for some learning styles, this will be optimal. But for me, it will be helpful to see this in print to get a visual mental imprint as well.
