Reviews for Organizational Behaviour: Managing People in Dynamic Organizations

This textbook has made a valuable contribution to the field of organisational behaviour studies....[It] has a user-friendly interface and major theories have been critically evaluated and justified in line with contemporary studies. Dr. Kirk Chang, Oxford Brookes University, UK The concepts are easy to understand. The material presented is very appropriate - it doesn't overload you with information, and the activities and case studies help me learn better than other books. I would recommend this book to friends studying organizational behaviour. Peng Jin, Business Studies Student, University of Westminster It is current, full of simple practical cases, less than half the size of other textbooks on the subject and much more straightforward.... I think it is much more appropriate for our management theory and practice students than what's currently available. Dr. Alan White, Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK The text is a brilliant addition to the OB arena. Accessible, well structured, bright and clearly set out. It has fantastic content that not only 'tells it how it is', - but more significantly encourages students to reflect on some of the more challenging aspects of OB. The case studies are a tremendous resource for both tutors and students and the review questions are an excellent way to prepare for examinations and use as group discussion prompts. All together, a new text that I am truly excited about using! Julia Pointon, De Montfort University, UK
