This is an excellent aid for any supervisor or manager who wishes to make clear distinctions of performance levels, and for those who are in the throes of clarifying performance ratings and levels. A clear explaination of how to do reviews, with a set of well thought-out example forms, adds value to this work. For those who struggle with getting just the right turn of phrase, to ensure the reviewee understands what is being done right, what needs work or improvement, and what constitutes improvement, PERFECT PHRASES FOR PERFORMANCE REVIEWS will be welcomed with relief. The time saved, alone, will make this title well worth the cost to almost any business with enough employees to justify performance reviews. Recommend this title, either alone, or in conjunction with EFFECTIVE PHRASES FOR PERFORMANCE APPRAISALS, by James E. Neal; the latter title includes two-word phrases and adjectives, which could adapt PERFECT PHRASES even further, and would be a valuable combination for performance reviewers in all industries, businesses, and for government employees.

I use this book, along with "Perfect Phrases for Setting Performance Goals" probably more than an other in my arsenal of business related books. It is perfect for helping me craft anything from how best to document an issue to writing performance appriasals to those moments when I just need help saying the right thing while taking the "emotion" out of it. I actually logged on to order a copy for a friend who just called asking my opinion on how best to handle an employee concern and as always, I pulled this book out and came up with just what we needed.

I teach performance appraisal writing and tell people not to use this or other books like this one. Using these books is a cop out and does little to capture a person's accomplishments. Focus on setting measurable and attainable standards and then capturing those in the appraisal...stop being lazy, your workers aren't dumb.
