I used this book for my introduction class to I-O Psychology.
Overall, it's a fairly easy-to-moderate read and isn't too dense.
Although at times it seems a little dated, I-O Psychology is always changing and growing, so it's always a challenge to have texts sufficiently updated. Overall, a good book and one that I still keep on my book shelf. I imagine by now there is a more updated version, but still, a good book.

Sure you learn statistics in college... but after you go past chapter 2, you begin to learn more about the job of an IO Psychologist. I'm and HR major and after taking this course I was very please with this text. Easy to read, great examples, and very job-related. You will definitely understand that the Job Analysis is where the IO Psyc's job begins!

I had a newer version required for a college class. After the class I sold it back but still wanted the resource so I bought this edition. This is very similar to the newer edition. I really like the topics and how the ideas are presented.
