"I have eagerly awaited the follow up to Bond and Holland's ground breaking first edition published some 12 years ago. This second edition is completely revisited, retaining the readable chapter structure, but tackling the key questions head on pertinent to clinical supervision development for nursing in the 21st century. Once again the authors do not pull any punches critically reviewing the nature of and challenges posed for its full implementation in practice. The strengths of this book are its practical application in and for practice. The continued emphasis on skills development in the clinical supervision relationship is evident, embroidered within the emotional work of everyday nursing practice. This is an essential read for all those still wrestling with full implementation in practice and presents a treasure trove of ideas for those actively engaging in the process."
