The book was well laid out and easy to read.

At the end of every chapter there are practice questions to help students take away the necessary information and focus on what is most important.

I bought this for a basic org behavior class that I had last year. The class wasn't that great, but the book is really well written. It's extremely thorough despite the wide range of information that it covers. I just took a basic HR class and when studying for the exams, I actually pulled this one out and looked up concepts that the HR book just glazed over. This was one of the most expensive books I've ever purchased (back then it was $170), but it's also the only one I have consistently used once the class was over. Definitely a keeper.

I liked this textbook because it was easy to understand. There were alot of good examples and the language was very straight forward, it wasn't filled with technical terms (unless they were defined). I think that it was overpriced, especially for the Kindle version. I bought the hardback so that I could recoup some of my costs at the end of the semester but I would have preferred a cheaper Kindle version to begin with.

This is an easy to read book for introductory Organizational Behavior students. It clearly outlines objectives for each chapter and has key terms bolded and defined in the margins. At the end of every chapter there are practice questions to help students take away the necessary information and focus on what is most important. If you're on the fence about buying it for your class or not, I recommend buying it because it's got some great info in there that you may find useful beyond the classroom.

We had to have this for school. The picture they use looks like the actual book you're supposed to have for class. BUT when you get it, the book looks totally different because it's the international version. There are pages that are missing (and I don't mean because someone tore them out) I mean that they were not printed in there. They have extra "stories" in there... all related from India, because that is who this international book is made for. They do NOT include the Appendix B which is vitally important to you when doing the "self assessments" in every chapter. If your instructor says, "turn to page ___" It won't be the same as the rest of the class. So when the instructor gives assignents - for instance: "Do Case study 8.1" your case study 8.1 is NOT the same as the rest of the class. I urge you NOT to buy the international version. TERRIBLE!

The Kindle version and Print version have a lot of different between them. You must pay attention to those number (ISBN-10 and ISBN-13) to make sure you will buy the one you need. I think most of us will not use the Kindle version because it is not what we need for class, you should ask your professor detail about your book before you decide to buy it.

Well organized and up to date information. Uses current companies to demonstrate or comment on principles presented in the text; and that helps understand application of the ideas.
