Praise for the Second Edition:
Such an easy book to use. Clearly divided up into sections that are covered at a basic introductory level. Provision of additional references and resources at the end of each chapter. I've been teaching management for 15 years using other textbooks. Wish I had come across this earlier!
This is a good book for a basic master-level course on management and I will likely use it is a core text in the next run of the course.
This was a very good book to use.
Both students and lecturer found it easy to read and filled with good examples
Covers relevant areas of the module. Good clear approach with very useful examples.
A very accessible volume and students are enjoying the additional support to learning/comprehension throughout the book. Hoping to use the PPT slides once I get access to the resources!
A refreshing approach to such broad topics that avoids the conventional approach and leaves the reader wanting more.
An excellent text that provides post-graduate students with a comprehensive treatment of an increasingly important and complex subject.
This book is fantastic to run along side the Unit as essential reading. The case studies in chapters 8 and 9 specifically will be used in the class of "Managing Communications, Knowledge and Information". This is one of the most complete books that I have ever read in terms of Business HNDs and is one that I will be championing to students to accompany a number of the units.
That is very well written book for students. My course is "Introduction to Management" and feedback about that book has been mainly positive. All my do not want to read English textbook, but I have tried to convince them that this book is excellent and they should try to read English.
This is a truly fantastic text! It is both an academic work of the highest quality and also an intoxicating series of stories of contemporary management and organizational change best practice. It continually questions our understanding of organizational theory and practice, but does so in many supportive and formative ways. It allows us to shape our thinking and helps prepare us for further scholarship and/or management practice. An essential book for any middle leader aspiring to greatness!

Good basics for students - good case studies and independent learning elements.
Good for some subjects covered
I think this book is perfect for graduate students, but still one of the best as reference books for my undergraduate students.
This is a great book for the management course I am delivering. It provides good up to date knowledge which I am already using in my delivery sessions. It is very informative and great for dipping in to the topics that I need.
I am recommending this book for my students as it povides invaluable information. A fabulous introductory text for the field of managing and organisations.
A super book which provides a critical perspective on key elements of management in contemporary organisations. Critical and engaging for students.
This book has both depth and accessibility and therefore provides a great resource for students. Of particular use are the up-to-date case studies and contemporary world linkages, i.e. mirroring many of the theories in popular culture, etc. The only reason we have decided not to adopt this book as essential reading is the price.
The book form the backbone of the EBHM16 Managing People module at Swansea University Business School. It is the only required reading for the module. The book offers a good balance between mainstream and critical perspectives on management. I hope the Companion Website, a valuable resource, will be updated soon to match the new edition of the book.
