Review:

"This is a one-stop comprehensive overview of the performance appraisal process. It is readable, practical, yet shrewd. Based on research and the actual experiences of many companies, the book will provide you with new ideas and new approaches to an old problem. I recommend this book to any manager--whether in HR or not." --Sanford M. Jacoby, Howard Noble Professor of Management, The Anderson School UCLA (Reviews)
