Review:

"The three-pronged approaches are very important. I feel I am lacking of proper materials to encourage students in applying the concepts through critical thinking and application. The textbook under review did good job on this aspect."

Author: Wai Kwan (Elaine) Lau

"Not only does it provide examples from older techniques and policies, it provides the changing perspective that modern HR managers must face."

Author: Tony Daniel

"I feel that you have covered every major topic in an introduction to HR course."

Author: Samuel L. Rohr

"The course that I teach was designed and developed in a manner that enhances critical thinking skills and the use of case studies to provide hands on and in class experiences that provide opportunities to learn from peers.  This text works very well with the way my course was designed. I am a firm believer in setting up a student for success. All of these tools available at the instructors’ disposal will allow for an effective and efficient opportunity to enhance the learning experience for the student. I personally incorporate as many tools or modes of instructional delivery as possible to accommodate the different learning styles that students have."

Author: Marie A. Valentin

"It is a very comprehensive overview of HRM and the HR function. I especially like the references to and integration with other management disciplines and areas such as finance and strategic management."

Author: Brian Martinson

"It is a great way to introduce students to Human Resource Management fundamentals. The topics are specific and students can easily understand them."

Author: Tony Bledsoe

"The information is very easy to understand and absorb. It is also interesting to read. I have used the Lussier / Hendon textbook for my doctorates course.  I enjoyed it a great deal and it was very beneficial."

Author: Joni Koegel

"Appropriate level of writing. Style is clear, concise, and logical flow."

Author: Richard Bahner

"The topics are appropriate. I particularly like chapter 9 dealing with rights and employee management. Although these concepts are covered in most of the textbooks, this is the one I have seen that did most justice to it by pooling them together under one chapter for in depth coverage."

Author: Hudson Nwakanma

"I am very impressed with the content of all chapters and consider all chapters to be highly valuable and relevant for HRM courses. The three-pronged approach is my preferred approach to take in a course. The discussion of concepts provides the foundation they need to be able to work with applied exercises, and the development activities can help students overcome pitfalls identified during application exercises."

Author: Kelly Hall
