Review:

"Organization Theory and Design by Richard L Daft, Jonathan Murphy, and Hugh Willmott is a superlative textbook, linking robust theory to practical professional information for future managers. This helps students learn how to think and how to theorize. The theoretical framework enhances understanding, helping students to learn effectively and to remember what they learn. Daft, Murphy, and Willmott encourage students to think critically by offering a comprehensive overview of organization theory in a clear, well written text." --Ken Friedman, Professor of Design Theory and Strategic Design and Dean, Faculty of Design, Swinburne University of Technology and formerly Professor of Leadership and Strategic Design, Norwegian School of Management

"I am a huge fan of Daft's texts and this adaptation has not disappointed! The adaptation allows the material to transfer more easily to international forums and the case study contributions are excellent. The new `Counterpoint' feature is my favorite addition as it subtly introduces students to important new perspectives while maintaining the integrity of the main text - taking the overall work to a new level in the process." --Annie Hollings, Principal Lecturer, Staffordshire University Business School

"I have used Daft's texts for a number of years for teaching undergraduate Organisation Theory and Practice. In Ireland, we need a balance of perspectives from Boston to Berlin. This adaptation is more relevant and accessible to our students providing the right balance of academic theory and practical examples." --Theo Lynn, Lecturer in Management, Dublin City University Business School

"This new `Counterpoint' feature is a very good idea - it helps to emphasise that there are no answers to the questions raised in organizational design and that there are, instead, wide-ranging debates about how to deal with organizational problems. The chapters are all clearly presented and highly readable and I would have no hesitation in adopting this as an essential course text." --Robert Finnigan, Associate Lecturer in HRM and Organisational Behaviour, Bradford University School of Management

"Daft, Murphy & Willmott is very tightly written and the introduction of new international perspectives has been done well. The `Counterpoint' feature is an excellent idea and will add to the strong framework for student exercises and revision, while the overall changes will make it an attractive core textbook for many European lecturers." --John Cullen, School of Business & Law, NUI Maynooth
