Organizational Behavior, 10th edition presents classic and emerging organizational behavior trends and research, making the subject both accessible and meaningful for students. To make the connection between theory and practice, the authors include timely examples, exercises, and high-interest cases. To help students focus and understand the importance of organizational behavior, the authors introduce seven managerial competencies that are essential to being an effective leader or member of an organization. These competencies are introduced early and woven throughout in special features, exercises, and an interactive self-assessment tool. The overall length of the text has been dramatically reduced creating a text that is both clear and manageable for any course.

The text contains relevant theories and concepts, is easy to read, presents material in a colorful fashion, includes current cases/examples, is multi-dimensional (questionaires, competency checks, etc.). I am generally satisfied with the text.
The text is logically organized and the authors' views of organizational behavior topics to cover is consistent with my own. Although I rearrange some of the material to suit my teaching preferences, the text has excellent topic coverage. I am very satisfied with the general content, layout, and supplements provided with the text.
The text was very comprehensive, focused on managerial competencies and was very current in its literature review. Overall I was very satisfied with the text.
