"I still absolutely love this textbook in terms of the quality of its material, the way it covers theory so engagingly, using it to illuminate current issues. The skills/employability aspect is important for our students to feel value in their study and a link with their future work plans. " - Dr Dawn Williams, Westminster Business School, UK "I have tried other books before, but this one is really what I have been looking for. I especially like the critical and scholarly approach to theory, the theory in context boxes, and also the running case. " - Dr Lineke Stobbe Windesheim Univeristy of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands "I really agree with the "critical, practical and accessible" approach - this is just what the students need. " - Dr Shelley Harrington, University: University of Huddersfield Business School, UK
