Reviews

'Monika Kostera has completed an extensive book project of not only one edited volume but altogether three volumes in her trilogy on organizational myths, epics and sagas...[she] has succeeded very well in this endeavor: the trilogy reflects her genuine insights and extensive experience in this field of research. It was a pleasure to read chapters that addressed the themes from many versatile angles yet created a consistent whole, written by authors from many different nationalities and backgrounds...These books are recommended reading for those already familiar with organizational myths and metaphors, but are also very accessible for those less familiar with the mythical side of organizational life. In fact, one wishes that many mainstream management courses, with prevalent modernistic assumptions of rationality and linearity, inherent in mainstream business studies, would include one of these books in their reading list to broaden students' horizons and generate a deeper understanding of the complexities of organizational life.' - Scandinavian Journal of Management
