4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on July 29, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Most Americans agree that discrimination is wrong. The U.S. population is an amazingly varied patchwork of people from every conceivable background and orientation. Nevertheless, widespread discrimination prevents members of racial minorities, as well as people of other classifications, such as women, disabled people, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, from realizing their full potentials at work. The recognition and celebration of diversity is essential to a smoothly functioning U.S. society. In this textbook, diversity expert Myrtle P. Bell explains that diversity is a strength, not a weakness. Employers who actively seek to create diverse workplaces benefit from doing so. getAbstract recommends this book to human resource managers and others who wish to promote workplace diversity and end discrimination.

Excellent book encompassing all aspects of diversity, and a few I didn't even think of as a diversity issue. Very informative, written in logical order. Great summaries given at end of every chapter.

By Melilynn on March 2, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a required text for a "senior" level course and it just wasn't in-depth enough. There was barely a discussion of modern gender or sexual orientation variations and how those can effect relationships in the workplace. Also, while I genuinely agreed with most of the author's points, she was too liberal in her preferences and this definitely caused some of my less liberal classmates to automatically dismiss much of the text.

There is nothing wrong with the book itself it is just I did not really need to use it for my online culture and diversity class. I will however keep it in case I need to reference in the future. I am in nursing school so I am sure I will need to reference to it in the future.
