Overview

Published in its First Edition 20 years ago, PSYCHOLOGY APPLIED TO WORK is the long-time market leader in the field of I/O psychology and has become the definitive standard for textbooks in this field. A significant revision, the Seventh Edition continues the text's tradition of providing a highly readable and understandable framework for the teaching and learning of I/O psychology at the undergraduate level. Muchinsky's text is renowned for its balanced blend of science and practice, based on the most current knowledge in the field, citing more than 800 references, the majority of which were published in the last five years. Case studies, field notes, and examples based on actual organizations illustrate and bring to life the relevance of I/O psychology to students' daily lives. This new edition enables students to understand the social, cultural, and structural changes affecting the world of work as it applies to employees and employers.
