Review:

"Students enjoy stories and the narrative approach of this text is a refreshing change to often dry OB textbooks."--Tracy H. Porter

"A unique approach to OB which emphasizes practical, hands on information, based on a solid theoretical foundation."--Samira B. Hussein

"Carefully thought out, well-researched, and invitingly pleasant to read."--Daniel S. Marrone

"This is a very readable text suited for any graduate or undergraduate student. It contains real life examples that make the concepts understandable and explainable."--Robert D. Gulbro

"I would feel like students had been exposed to some useful and instructive information as a result of reading the Leadership chapter. I would feel that they had been provided with an illustration of critical thinking through the story of Langston, who analyzed his situational circumstances and then made decisions about leading based on leadership theory."--Deborah S. Butler

"Organizational Behavior: A Critical Thinking Perspective will clear your head of the cobwebs as you engage your brain skills in multiple critical thinking exercises."--Janice S. Gates

"This textbook is geared to stimulating student interest in the subject."--Nathan Himelstein

"I don't usually get excited about changing textbooks, but this book has real potential. OB in the movies is a great way to connect."--Harriet L. Rojas

"A new innovative approach to Organizational Behavior that challenges students to think critically by integrating the workplace into the classroom."--Andrea E. Smith-Hunter

"This textbook is centered on student engagement by including features which enable the student to learn by using critical thinking skills.'--Maria D. Vitale
