Review:

"I am really excited to see how the author implements both the "Do first then learn" and "Less is more" philosophies. These two philosophies set the text apart from other offerings that just focus on providing information and then activities related to theory." "I would describe this text as an innovative approach to skills that covers all of the major areas that we are used to addressing. The difference is in the text's ability to "show" students areas of deficiency and thus motivate them to acquire, develop, and practice the relevant skills." "I'm excited about the idea of this text. If the authors effectively implement the do then learn as well as the less is more approach, coupled with fresh, innovative video scenarios, I would strongly consider this text for adoption."

"A novel way to organize/approach the material in a traditional skills/OB course."

"You need to place it [this book] on the market as the most innovative product in the world. And, here is a selling point: in today's destroyed economic times, after witnessing the fall of Wall Street and Ponzi schemes, managers today must be able to be creative, innovative, and be a catalyst for change. It's not the same old routine for today's managers; planning, controlling and organizing. Today, managers are supposed to not only manage people, but turn their employees into a competitive advantage."
