Solid and entertaining text with some sacrifices in content Dec 10 2008
By JJD - Published on
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
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.

Accessible and Engaging OB Book Feb. 15 2012
By Robert Jacques - Published on
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.

interesting Aug. 30 2009
By Linda F. Wiece - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Well, I have to read this book for school, and I've only read the first two chapters. However, as textbooks go, this is an easy read. The sections are relatively small so you're not reading on the same topic for hours. Also, the text is broken up nicely with real-life examples, tables, and charts to add some interesting bits & pieces. Even if not required to read it,this book provides insight in an interesting way, and would be beneficial to managers who want to improve their workplace.
