In Oops, I Became a Manager: Managing the Veterinary Hospital Team while Finding Unicorns, Amy Newfield provides a comprehensive guide to mastering leadership and management in the veterinary industry. Amy picks several engaging and humorous stories from her experiences while working with different veterinary teams to give readers practical, tested methods to employ with their teams. The book contains thought-provoking essays about learning to delegate and supervise optimally instead of trying to take on all the important activities, key traits to look for while selecting leaders, building trust and reducing gossip in workspaces, recognizing and dealing with burnout, and more. Whether you're new to the veterinary world or you've been practicing for a while, you will learn how to up your game in leadership and teamwork from this informative and complex book.

I wish that every professional role came with a candid, fully-packed guide, like Oops, I Became a Manager to advance individuals in their chosen careers and help them avoid costly mistakes. This is exactly what the book does for veterinary professionals. Still, the lessons about leadership and performing well with others within teams can be applied in any field. It doesn't get more practical than the direct steps Amy Newfield shares as it includes clear wording and messages to use in different situations, the activities to include in different types of meetings, and more useful information that shows that the author has mastered her profession. Thanks to this book, I now know how significant and beneficial something as simple as giving well-deserved praise can be. This is a well-balanced, engrossing book, with its abundant statistical information, real-life examples, and its friendly, interactive tone.
