Solid and entertaining text with some sacrifices in content Dec 10 2008
By JJD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is easily the most engaging OB textbook on the market, with clear writing and lots of production value in terms of quotes, sidebar tangents, connections to books and media, diagrams, etc. It is also noteworthy because the authors structured the chapters into an overarching model that is repeatedly reinforced, which helps prevent the chapters from feeling like a series of disjointed ideas, a common problem in OB courses.

My only criticism is that several topics that are common to most other OB books are oddly absent, or glossed over, in this textbook. There is little content on the theory of the organization or the history of OB, careers, work identity, emotions (which are just wrapped up in the book's coverage of satisfaction), diversity, or organizational change/development. These topics may not have fit in the book's overarching model, but instructors who want to talk about these topics, like I do, will need to find supplmental readings.

Decently written textbook - no index, though April 17 2013
By Idiotfool - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Loose Leaf Verified Purchase
The textbook is straightforward and, if you've had any sort of organizational behavior course, you won't have any surprises. The chapters give real-world examples of various topics and at the end of the chapter, there is a synopsis of the topics covered.

The biggest flaw in the book is that there is only a glossary/definition of terms section. Although these tell you the page where the definition was originally given, there are a limited number of words. Without a true index, I can't find, directly, which chapters discuss a specific item.

I'm also not a huge fan of loose-leaf textbooks, especially when they cost upwards of $100, but I need this for an MBA course and the alternative is a digital copy, which I loathe more.

Easy Read for a Textbook Feb. 5 2013
By Allison Tinney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
(I will preface this by saying Colquitt is currently my professor). The good news is if you don't have the pleasure of sitting in one of his classes, his book is right on target with his lectures! Colquitt does a great job both in the classroom and in this book of making this topic more interesting and engaging (especially for the number crunching business folks out there). It's probably one of the best and easiest textbooks I've ever had to read... and actually do read.

Accessible and Engaging OB Book Feb. 15 2012
By Robert Jacques - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book offers a well-written, accessible, and engaging format to learning organizational behavior -- for undergraduate and graduate students alike. While some books sacrifice clarity for density, the authors here did a great job keeping the audience in mind by relating OB principles to popular culture and to readers. Self assessments facilitate readers to apply the lessons to their past experiences, which reinforces the main point that effective OB practices lead to greater productivity and better companies.
