By Manny Hernandez HALL OF FAME on September 27, 2002
Format: Paperback
The book is fairly comprehensive in terms of its scope. We are currently using the book at our Organizational Behavior class, and it's proved to be an excellent reference. The way it is structured (for the reader) makes in-depth reading or skimming through it (let's face it: this is the reality for most working MBA students!) equally effective. It has clearly distinguishable definitions on the margins, which can serve as a cue for the topic, along with the summaries at the end of every chapter. The intro and closing "cases" provided around the topic of the chapter are VERY insightful and on every other page or so, there are examples about the matter being discussed, which help with the understanding (I know that I, as an Engineer, appreciate examples to illustrate a point). Finally, the illustrations (graphs and charts) are one of the best things the book has! Remember that phrase that used to say "a picture is worth a thousand words"? Well, the authors epithomize it. The charts in the book do a great job at conveying entire pages of information at a time in a very efficient way. All in all, I like the book a lot, and it's been very helpful in complementing our in-class discussions about cases and topics of Organizational Behavior.

Good for its scope of coverage in organizational behavior. I used the book on a course for Organizatinoal Psychology. It can be used for a business course or psychology. While there is so much theory, that perhaps the average manager might not use, there is a lot of food for thought here in helping any leader of a major organization, or mid-size organization, in being competitive in this competitive society, and managing effectively his or her department or company, as a strong individual leader, or wherever you might fit into the big wheel.

I was somewhat inspired by the information and examples in this book. I sold some of my college textbooks, but kept this one along with some others. Well-written and through.

It outlines what I need to know and it does not require me to buy a more expensive later edition.
