HASH(0x9f25c594) out of 5 stars A Great Textbook Jan. 31 2012
By Alicia R. Jefferson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I find the textbook "Organizational Behavior (13th Edition) to be a very good read.

The colorful tables and figures are not only informative, but they are pleasant to look at.

All of the chapters contain insight features. Also, the various Competencies: (Ethics, Self, Diversity, Across Cultures, Communication, Teams, and Change) gives each chapter structure, which makes it easier to follow. I find the key terms and discussion questions helpful for studying and preparing for tests.

The case studies and photos are very informative and even intriguing.

HASH(0x9fb4dae0) out of 5 stars Merely decent text, bad graphics, terrible delivery method March 6 2012
By Jeremy C. Fretts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I must review two features of this purchase: the text, and the online textbook format.

The text is a solid overview text for Human Resource Development, with interesting case studies and examples. The authors got a carried away with their structural framework, and the graphic illustrations are both numerous and of little value. It's a solid introductory book, but I would not describe it as well-written, or an efficient use of language and paper.

The e-textbook format means that (at least at present) the book cannot be read on a Kindle or Android tablet. It can be read only on a computer, or an iPad. A few pages have copyrighted content by others that is omitted from the online text due to copyright issues. I have found these two factors to be a serious encumbrance. So inconvenient, in fact, that I've considered buying a paper copy of the book -- that's saying a lot given the cost.

Used this book for my Org behavior class this past Spring. Was very easy reading with lots of visual charts, and pictures to aid in learning.

HASH(0x9fb4dad4) out of 5 stars Good textbook but they need to clear up copyright issues so Kindle users don't get short-changed... Aug. 3 2014
By C. Grova - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very informative and easy to follow, the only thing stopping me from giving this five stars is that the Kindle version has graphics that are missing and, in their place, instead you get a statement that says "text not available due to copyright restrictions." It's a bit frustrating to read text referring to graphics you can't actually see because of some digital copyright issues!

The text is fine...however, keep these two issues in mind for e-book:

1) This particular e-book caused my reader application to crash constantly; this did not happen with any other book and I was eventually refunded my money as Amazon could not resolve. In my case I rented and viewed with Kindle for PC app on a Windows 8.1 OS...this book is not available on the actual app for Windows 8.1 so you are forced to use the original application. Was not available on other devices I own and wouldn't have been efficient anyways.

2) There is a lot of missing information due to digital copyright issues. This is not Amazon's fault (and in fact exists in all electronic copies I've found) but still creates a big problem when you need to get all of the information or read and answer a case that is completely greyed out.

My advice to you if you prefer e-book format as I do:

Test out the purchase/rental with your preferred application first with free preview if available...flip through some different pages to see if it will try to crash the app. I ended up renting the e-book elsewhere but the search/navigation/categorization options are definitely not as nice as Kindle for PC.

Also, purchase or rent a cheap hard copy that's not in great shape as a'll need it for all the missing cases and illustrations.
