"All in all this is a useful addition to the literature that offers insights into the how's, why's, and so what's of the changing work world. While this volume is probably best suited as atext for undergraduate or graduate students of the organizational behaviour, both researchers in the field and human resources professionals will find it interesting and replete with practical suggestions. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." Choice, October 2002.
