Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have adopted this text and have used it for the past two years. I believe it to be the best on the market."

"I did not see that there were any weak chapters; nor did my students in an evaluation of the text; they liked it very much, found it very helpful in the course . . . I find that the students liked it a lot because it was so readable and well organized with good cases and questions."

"I have adopted this text because it is specific to Healthcare. My previous text was just HR in general, and too many of the examples and the information did not apply. I have not had any complaints or negative comments from any of the students. I also have part time professors using this text (5 classroom and 10 on line) and they have not made any negative comments about the book. They all said they were happy to have an HR book that focuses on Healthcare."
