Overview

As the subtitle indicates, Lussier’s Human Relations in Organizations: Applications and Skill Building employs a workbook-type approach. This approach is perfect for professors who want to incorporate activities and exercises into the classroom, and benefits students who want to understand concepts as well as apply and develop skills that they can use in their daily and professional lives. The book provides a balanced, three-pronged approach: a clear concise understanding of human relations/ organizational behavior concepts; the application of HR/OB concepts for critical thinking in the business world; the development of HR/OB skills.

    Wordy and Vague

    It was a good idea of a book, but there must have been a requirement for the number of words that the publisher needed. Simply put there is no real world understnding of the subject and a lot of theory. Sounds like it was written form the outside looking in and not from the inside looking out.
