Jamie M. Gray’s Becoming a Powerhouse Librarian: How to Get Things Done Right the First Timeis an excellent, well-written, and helpful book. Each chapter is short enough to fit into a lunch break but that does not mean there is a lack of substance. The tone of the book is not academic, yet it is not unprofessional. It almost reads like a talk or presentation at a conference.... Whether you have been in the library game for a long time or are fresh out of library school, this book provides many useful tips for taking risks and improving your library for yourself, your colleagues, and your patrons....This book is recommended for library students, and both new and experienced librarians, who may find value in reassessing their approach to their careers.
