Its accessible and user-friendly style make it suitable for readers unfamiliar with the theory of work psychology as well as those with a basic grounding in the subject. There is also new material on change and development and the issue of power at individual, group and organizational levels. It contains case studies and practical illustrations. An instructor's manual available with suggested short answer, essay and project assignments based on the content of each chapter.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
