Review:

“This second edition of the text has been updated with finesse. It addresses internationalization of the curriculum through global case studies and is suitable for students from a diverse range of backgrounds.” —Megan Paull, Lecturer, Murdoch Business School, Australia

"I highly recommend this text as currently the best book on the market." —Dr Susanne Tietze, Bradford University School of Management, UK

"Bratton's new Organisational Behaviour textbook is the most comprehensive and up-to-date OB textbook I have read in a long time. There are many novel pedagogical items in the book such as OB in films or web-based assignments. I welcome them both as for a long time I have been trying to incorporate them in my own teaching. It is great to see a textbook that will make my job easier!" —Dr Dorota Dobosz-Bourne, Queen Mary, University of London, UK

"An impressive text... The pedagogical features will help students and more, they help overworked lecturers and tutors to organise their sessions. This text is authoritative without being stodgy, gutsy in the way it discusses 'unpopular' topics under economic rationalism (like gender imbalances, managerialism). Will generate good student discussion about important issues. It certainly adds something different." —Judith Chapman, University of Western Sydney, Australia

"A very thorough and comprehensive text, introducing a refreshingly modern take on the classics of OB. By taking a critical approach, this book offers new perspectives on the workplace and its many facets." —Dr Christian Waldstrm, Aarhus School of Business, Denmark

"Work and Organisational Behaviour is a groundbreaking book that bridges the gap between mainstream organisational behaviour texts and more critical sociological accounts of work. It includes a host of illuminating examples and reflective exercises, as well as a useful glossary, and is strongly recommended as essential reading for business and management students at all levels." —Dr Melissa Tyler, Loughborough University, UK

"One of the most positive features of the book is the clarity of the language - dealing with complex ideas in an easy to understand way." —Dr Donald Hislop, Sheffield University Management School, UK

"This will become the best-selling OB textbook on the market." —Dr Alan Tuckman, Nottingham Trent University, UK
