Professor Cary L. Cooper, CBE. Pro Vice Chancellor (External Relations) and Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health, Lancaster University. 'This book is an outstanding achievement. It is one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date texts available anywhere on the subject of business psychology and organizational behaviour. It takes the reader through individual, group and organizational perspectives, while at the same time offering an appreciation of their historical development and methodological issues. This solid foundation provides a basis for offering extremely useful guidance on the human resource and organizational options open to practising managers. Professor John Child, Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham, UK 'This fourth edition of Business Psychology and Organisational Behaviour covers issues ranging from personnel selection to training and creating better working conditions, from both a psychological and an organisational point of view. It has a clear style and captivates the reader through the use of multiple practical examples. I would highly recommend it for all programs in higher education which aim to enhance the knowledge and skills of their students in the fields of labour and organisational psychology and business studies.
