"I find this text one of the best for my students because it focuses on key issues facing managers in business, not necessarily human resource managers. Operating on the assumption that all managers and supervisors will engage in selecting, training, evaluating, and compensating employees, the text is particularly valuable as a core course for business administration students. Furthermore, this foundation text explains to students the overall responsibilities of human resource managers. As a result, students interested in the discipline are better able to decide whether that field of study is best for their skills, abilities, and interest." — Susan Gardner, California State University, Chico

"The most distinctive characteristic of this text is how it pares down the information into a very readable form without sacrificing content or reasonable depth." — Thomas Kanick, Broome Community College
