'This academic book aimed at human resources practitioners and scholars offers a comprehensive round-up of international psychological research into the meaning of work, spillover in the home-work interface, work-family conflict, work health and stress. It is not, and does not set out to be, a popular guide on how to have a better work-life balance - 5 out of 5 - Excellent.' - Lyn Murphy, in Nursing Standard, June 2006.
'Well organized and follows a logical progression through the various chapters - introducing key theoretical ideas early, addressing important research issues, and endiing with specific applications and future irections. I believe that this could be an interesting supplemental text for courses in industrial/organizational psychology at either the undergraduate or the graduate level. It could also serve as a primary text in a work-life seminar.' - Karl N. Kelley in PsycCRITIQUES, September 2006.
