Ivancevich's Human Resource Management, 10e takes a managerial orientation; that is it takes the position that HRM is relevant to managers in every unit, project, or team. Managers are constantly faced with HRM issues, problems, and decision-making and the text's primary goal is to show how each manager must be a human resource problem solver and diagnostician. This book pays attention to the application of HRM approaches in "real" organizational settings and situations. Realism, understanding, and critical thinking were important in the revision. Students and faculty alike have identified readability and relevance as key strengths of the text. It provides a book that stimulates ideas and keeps all users up-to-date on HRM thinking and practice.

Very good overview of the various topics in Human Resource Management. The book was very readable, and divided up in a way as to promote (at least in me) recall of the topics in a better way than most course textbooks I've read. Highly recommended (from a student's standpoint at least). Read full review
