highly recommended text for MBA. This should be your main reference and is well-written. If you buy only one book for HRM, this should be the one

I like the book, it's worth buying.
My problem is that it's sometimes too long and not always that relevant.
I would wish that the structure would be a bit clearer sometimes, that would help understanding the global context.
