Booknews
In this update of the 1994 edition, D. Schultz (U. of South Florida) and S. Schultz continue their focus on real-world workplace practices and applied principles rather than on studies of college students performing simulated work tasks. Taking into account the changing demographics, economics, and technology of employment, they cover standard topics of industrial/ organizational psychology: an overview of the I/O field, the development of human resources, organizational issues, workplace characteristics, plus consumer psychology. Primarily for non-majors. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
