Great reference for the HR Generalist
By L. Vilmain on Apr 22, 2010
As a Human Resource Generalist one is responsible for a vast amount of knowledge. As I researched which general reference book to add to my library, I consulted the "HRCI's PHR and SPHR Certification Guide" for which books and authors most frequently appeared in the notes. I found this book/authors the most. This is the most recent editoin and covers an extensive amount of information. A good feature is the frequent recommendations for places on the internet where one can investigate the topics further. I found the copious notes at the end of each chapter reassuring as to content validity and helpful for additional reference . Lana Vilmain, HR Generalist, email@example.com
An Indispensable Tool for all Human Resource Developers
By Reginald Johnson on Aug 08, 2008
I have been recommending Human Resource Management to clients since the first edition. The authors Robert L. Mathis and John H. Jackson have kept this bible of the industry ... relevant and updated throughout the years. This latest edition continues the trend, pace, and level of excellence since its inception. It is a perfect reference source and deals with the theoretical as well as real world situations. All companies can benefit from its practical applications whether they are start-ups or major corporations. Reggie Johnson, Success-Tapes.Com

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.
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.
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.
No page numbers!
By Parie B. on Jan 27, 2013
The ebook is good. I was able to "write" in my book and make notations on it. The downside to is ebook is that there are NO page number! It makes it hard when in class and the professor is telling you to turn to so and so page and you have to look over at your classmate to see what the content of the page is in her hard cover book in order for you to find the exact page on your ebook.
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!
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.
