5.0 out of 5 stars very very simple and with a lot of examples 13 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought this book to prepare a MBA exam in HR Strategy and Management and it was very useful because it treats the subject in a very easy way (from the ABC to most complex notions I would say), quoting a lot of examples and discussing the topic under every point of view.

Really recommened for HRM students and for Managers that would like to update their knowledge!
