"Foot and Hook is very suitable for foundation level HRM studies, and, because of the refreshing, uncomplicated style and approach, it inspires students to go beyond the foundation level."

3.0 out of 5 stars ok, but a bit brief 8 Dec 2002
By A Customer
this book is a university module text, however for a human resource module i did not find it inspiring nor informative. it reads the basic aspects of human resource but lacks in depth on subject areas.
overall, ok if you just need to know the hrm basics

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - good for HR students 13 Oct 2004
By University Student - Published on
I bought this book and I recommened it to anyone who is new to Human Resource Management. The book is great and very informative. Supplement the book with other readings though since management is a dynamic area and is prone to opinions and debates.
