This is an exciting textbook, one that shows that the book industry is not dead yet. It is essentials-full and highly concise, a product of many years of thought. The cases and application exercises are relevant to the real world and greatly assist in the overall understanding of the main concepts of each chapter. The text is well written and filled with current references to business dealing with HR issues.
