Cummings OD book is perfectly designed to approach and delve into the field of OD smoothly and profoundly. Its first three chapters provide an excellent introduction to OD and how it is differentiated from overlapping organizational dynamics, primarily change management and organizational change. I respected this text's strategic analysis of the OD interventions and the pragmatic models of their implementation. Although developing business organizations sounds theoritical in its conceptual or abstract sense, this text gives you reasonable and sensible tools that help convert the OD theory to a tangible reality.

Most of the work we've done so far has been class activities and group work so we really don't depend on the book that much. However, I have read some of the book and it has been extremely dry and "academic" in the way it approaches most of the issues. This book makes the whole subject so stiff and formal in many ways that it almost loses its usefulness. I'm very glad for a professor who likes to put it all into a practical light.

Some pages were missing, it looked like someone ripped them out. So it wasn't as good as I thought it would be.

This book is so poorly written and needs editing for better readability. I agree with the other review that it was long-winded. The writing was so bad that my classmates ended up not reading the textbook and the instructor ditched it.
