Behave December 14, 2014
"The layout of the book makes sense and the information within is very well organized. If you are trying to use it for reference then it is actually one of the better books out there for you since everything is presented in a good order and you can easily find a starting point from the index at the rear of the book. My biggest complaint about this book is that there is very little difference between this most recent version and the past several versions. Each revision contains very little updating (except for the price.) That brings me to the subject of pricing. Your experience may vary depending on where you buy it but this is generally a pricy book. You do get a lot of bang for your buck here, though. I can't think of another text on organizational behavior that even comes close to touching this one."

This book blew my mind September 8, 2010
Working as an intern in an office setting, I found this textbook on organizational behavior very interesting. We have lots of interesting individuals with interesting behavior patterns. The author's interpretation of their behavior and why they do what they do was facinating. Each person in the office falls within some form of the corporate culture, exactly. The chapter on group behavior and how it effects corporate communication was pretty cool too. Overall, I give this baby 4 stars.
