Doctors keen to hone their management skills - which should be all of us in today's climate - could do a lot worse than get hold of a copy of Health and Social Care Management - a guide to self development. The chapters on communication, leadership, conflict handling and negotiation will be useful for doctors of all specialties, and the section on quality assurance is refreshingly dear and relevant, in a subject that often seems to pride in its use of jargon to obscure rather than illuminate. Health and Social care Management - a guide to self development. Whiteley S, Ellis R, Broomfield S. Arnold, London, 1996 £15.99.
