2.0 out of 5 stars Merely decent text, bad graphics, terrible delivery method March 6 2012
By Jeremy C. Fretts - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Textbook Jan. 31 2012
By Alicia R. Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
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.
