"This is the third edition of a successful American OB text. The material is very well organised and is presented in an appealing manner....It has an accompanying tutor's manual, a PowerPoint CD as well and a web page for those who want to base their GB courses around this text."
The Occupational Psychologist

"This book's excellent treatment of the research literature is superior to other textbooks. By necessity, any textbook must cover only a sample of the research on a given topic, but Stroh, Northcraft, and Neale have done an excellent job of covering the most important and current research findings."
Steven C. Currall
Rice University

"This book is well-grounded in current theory and research without losing sight of real world illustrations and discussions of their practical implications for prospective managers....the book strives to present useful and interesting insights from the latest academic thinking and research in organizational behavior."
Peter Hom
Arizona State University

"The content is relevant, easy to read, entertaining and informative. The authors clearly understand the research literature, but they don't overwhelm the reader with a narrative of every study conducted on the topic at hand."
Talya Bauer
Portland State University

"Based on my reading, this seems to be a well-written text that is well-grounded in terms of current theory and empirical research. It seems most appropriate for advanced undergraduate students, although it could be targeted at MBA students. A strength of the text seems to be its breadth of coverage and clarity in terms of writing style."
