At the same time, it retains its wonderful historical perspective, a writing style that connects with the audience by using situations and examples that readers can relate to, and a laser–like focus on the scientist–practitioner model as an underlying framework." – Wayne Cascio , University of Colorado Denver "This textbook provides an excellent introduction to I–O psychology.
