The highlighted sections are extremely difficult to read because of the background color. Most of the grey background has valuable definitions; however, the print is slightly a darker grey that blends into the background. Maybe the printer would consider modifying this design in future publications so that the readers do not have this type of barrier.

If you like visual examples this text is for you. My only criticism is the math equations could have been explained better for those of us who are not mathematically inclined. I enjoyed the case studies, those were excellent.

This book is blah. Barely any graphics, charts, or pictures to spice things up, and it is black and white which you don't realize how boring a text book can be until they take the color out.

Also, the authors try to make weird jokes through out the book that really detract from the point they are trying to teach.
Example: Page 306, "The oil that lubricates the compensation engine (email the authors if you agree this is a horrible metaphor!) is performance measurement and performance management."

What....Why would they say that? If its a horrible metaphor why publish it?!

Example: page 306 again:
"Who buys an explorer that gets 17 mpg when gas now costs over $4/gallon? (except of course a dumb second author! By the way, it's a really pretty red!) HR can't control these types of environmental obstacles, after all."

.....did they just refer to one of the authors as dumb? why? THIS is what I mean. Its through out the whole book.

Example stories not very good. If you are a teacher, I would look for another book.

This was a required text for my Total Rewards class. Sadly, I ended up using search engines, and HR websites to help with learning the direct explanations of each chapter assigned (basically the whole book). At no point in the 8-week course was I able to use the book as a reference. It was much easier to be where internet service was and go web-surfing. With the internet and my own common sense/logical conclusions, the assignments were completed. The only time I used any part of the book was to give a "gimme" and reference it in my papers.

Read this book many years ago and now have gone back to get a refresher. It is the only book you need to get a real feel for compensation. Anyone in HR should have this in their professional library.
