Review:

"I like all [of the end-of-chapter features], and I especially like the experiential exercises at the end of each chapter."

"I really like the self-assessment exercises at the end of each chapter. Students are required to do them each week to earn bonus points. It really helps them see how their personality and perceptions fit in the world of management."
