Great book teaching the basics and more of HR
By Brandon Taylor on May 21, 2010
This book is amazing. It makes learning the basic of human resources so easy and interesting. Before I read this book, I was unaware of how many aspects of HR there was. It really helps anyone learn the basics. The text brings up real-world examples and scenarios that really make it fun to read. If you are an instructor, please do your students a favor and choose this book. The price is really high for such a small book but it really is worth it due to how well it explains the material. Oh yeah, I have no affiliation with the publisher and am basing this review on the twelfth edition.
Is it really worth so much??
By T. Carr on Jul 09, 2009
I have just started my class that uses this book. It seems like a fairly good book. It's organized well enough. But it was $100! And when you get it, it's a lot smaller and shorter of a book than I was expecting for some reason. My professor said that the 12th edition was different enough from the 11th that we couldn't use the old one or we would be lost.
Human Resource Management Text
By Johnny Wiley Iii on Sep 06, 2009
I am a graduate student studying Leadership and Organization. This text has helped me better understand the role of the human resources department within an organization. The text provides information that is both practical and useful in working in an organization. There is much importance in how the human resources department deals with understanding employee rights and laws and staying within compliance.
Study points on it

Lots of info and to the point. Great for studying and being used as a refresher will recommend it to any manager
Good, but surprisingly there are spelling/grammar errors!
By Yiayiamouse on May 17, 2012
The content of the text is good. I don't find it difficult to read and it serves the purpose for my course. Truth be told, the content could be communicated in far fewer words, and the editor should be coached for improved attention to detail as there are several spelling and/or usage errors in the book. Whatever, though; it works and with textbooks for courses it is not like there are options.
Required book for my class
By Keith A. Rosdahl on Jan 27, 2013
The book was adequate for my class. Although after purchasing it and reading it, I had wished I purchased it from another website because they offered the book and the digital copy for just a little bit more combined . . . that would have been really helpful!
