About the Author
Robert D. Gatewood received his Ph.D. in industrial psychology from Purdue University. After accomplishing this, he first worked as a consultant for American Institutes for Research and then joined academia. His first position was as a member of the Department of Management at the Terry College of Business, University of Georgia. As has been indicative of his well planned career, Bob thought that he would stay at Terry for maybe five years because it would only take a few years for a smart person with three liberal arts degrees to get used to business schools and then move on to bigger and better things. Thirty-four years later, he decided that maybe it was time to move on. During these years, Bob climbed the academic ranks from assistant to full professor and pursued an administrative career at Terry as a department chair and associate dean in the College of Business. Bob was also elected to five executive positions, including President, within the Human Resources Division of the Academy of Management. In 2005, Bob moved to the Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University as the Director of the Executive MBA Program. In 2008 he moved to Denver, Colorado when his wife Chris became Dean of the Daniels School of Business at the University of Denver. He had the good sense to retire from faculty life at that point. As a consultant, Bob has worked with a number of companies; PPG Industries, Westinghouse, BellSouth, and Ford for example.
Hubert S. Feild earned his Ph.D. in industrial psychology from the University of Georgia. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Management at Auburn University for more than 33 years and is now the Torchmark Professor of Management. His numerous articles have been published in such journals as ACADEMY OF MANAGEMENT JOURNAL, JOURNAL OF APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY, and PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY. He also has done many projects for companies like SONY, PPG Industries, GE, and AmSouth Bank. A former student athlete, he played baseball at Mississippi State.
Murray Barrick obtained his Ph.D. in industrial and organizational psychology from the University of Akron. He is head of the Department of Management as well as a Distinguished Professor and the Robertson Chair at the Mays Business School at Texas A&M. He previously served as a faculty member at the University of Iowa and Michigan State University. Dr. Barrick's first publication?featured in PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY in 1991?was recognized as the most frequently cited article in that journal during the 1990s. More recently, it was reported to be the most highly cited article in industrial psychology between 2001 and 2005. By April 2009, this one article had been cited more than 2,300 times (Google Scholar). Dr. Barrick's awards include the Outstanding Published Paper, the Owens Scholarly Achievement Award, and the 2009 Distinguished Scientific Contributions Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, which he won along with Mick Mount. A former associate editor of PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY, he serves on the editorial boards of the JOURNAL OF APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY, PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY, and JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT. As for hobbies, Dr. Barrick enjoys biking across Iowa on the annual "RAGBRAI" ride. In addition, he has served as a keynote speaker in Pretoria, South Africa, and Melbourne, Australia; conducted tutorial workshops in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Australia, and New Zealand; and attended the occasional SIOP Conference.

I've reached the 5th chapter so far, and it has provided me with an excellent explanation of the key concepts in selection covered in these chapters. In terms of content, it is technical, as it should be. Nevertheless, the authors are able to present the information in a very easy-to-understand way without compromising any valuable material. It is actually fun to read; the authors use examples to illustrate practically every concept explained, and have a sense of humor throughout. An observation I've made that really attests to how well the book was written (to me, at least) is that I look forward to reading it each week more so than I look forward to reading the journal articles. That's a first for me, given the relatively dry textbooks I'm used to.
On a side note, I have the Kindle edition, and that's all I need...the highlighting works great! my only complaint would be that I haven't been able to check what page number I'm on. It only shows the location (e.g. it displays "Loc 3478" at the moment) at the bottom of the page, which is pretty meaningless if you want to refer to a page number suggested by the professor or a peer. Hopefully Amazon will fix this soon, or I will figure out how to activate the feature if it already exists. In any case, it hasn't really been a problem so far, and I would definitely buy the Kindle version again and highly recommend it.
