An appalling mix of '90s management jargon and bad grammar. It's a chore fighting my way through each assigned chapter, and when they are over I feel like all I got from it is the loss of an hour of my life. If you are a teacher, please do not force this on your students. Read full review

Required for a graduate class. Way too many chapters were devoted to common-sense management as opposed to valuable information about laws. Also it could have been more interestingly written. Read full review
