'This is a very wise book. I have long been a fan of previous editions, which have a well annotated place on my shelf. It is crammed with practical tips and insights, all based on a thorough overview of the evidence. It will challenge its readers to think, but above all to become better managers. This book never shirks the difficult challenge of how to turn its key ideas into practice. It is that rare textbook which repays careful reading. I can't recommend it highly enough.' - Dennis Tourish, Professor of Leadership, Kent Business School, UK
'This third edition is a classic work integrating HRM and strategic management, explaining the latest theoretical and practical developments in this fascinating area. Superbly written and referenced in a style that is relevant to both HRM academic and practitioner communities, and bridges the gap between theory and practice. It also integrates both HRM and employment relations in a critical but constructive way. This book is an absolute must for any serious student of HRM and HRM practitioner alike.' - Paul Toulson, Associate Professor of Human Resource Management, Massey University, NZ
'Linking Human Resources and strategy usually entails HR reaching out to try to grasp strategy concepts to justify that the function is aligned with strategy. Boxall and Purcell's Strategy and Human Resources bucks this trend to begin with an examination of strategy and then explore how HR can support it. This perspective can much better drive strategic thinking in HR and has much greater potential to increase the value of HR in the minds of strategic decision makers. This is the way HR should be taught.' -Patrick Wright, Professor of Strategic Human Resources, Cornell University, USA
'At its core, the field of strategic human resource management is concerned with integrating HR policies and practices with a firm's competitive strategy to enable firm success. Perhaps more than any other textbook, Professors Boxall and Purcell's Strategy and Human Resource Management offers a comprehensive and thorough treatment of the myriad issues and topics associated with strategic HRM. These leading scholars bring their experience and expertise to bear in synthesizing research and practice to provide students, academics and practitioners an evidence-based treatment of the premise and promise of integrating organizational strategy with human resource management.' - James P. Guthrie, William and Judy Docking Professor, School of Business, University of Kansas, USA

This admittedly is not reader friendly at all. Way too wordy, complex and jargon based. I find it a real struggle to get through this as it also doesn't have a good pace and any... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Reality Bites
I bought this book for uni and didn't find it that helpful, it is not written in a friendly way - you need to really concentrate on the book to understand it.Published on 9 May 2013 by RW
