Very easy to read. All theories are explained in simple terms that are easily understood.

Lots of bullet points instead of long paragraphs. Theories demonstrated by simple table and diagrams.

Index by subject and a second index by author, with lots of references to other writers.

EXCELLENT BOOK - used for MBA

Human resources professionals will find Michael Armstrong's book practical, helpful and relevant. It discusses all facets of current practice, including such relatively new developments as e-learning and recruiting, and it discusses how you can help your organization implement change. The book would make an excellent college text, since it covers HRM's evolution, principles, theories, practice, research, job descriptions and more. The author seems to have two goals: to provide comprehensive information about human resource management and to persuade upper level managers to integrate HRM into strategic planning. This would empower HR departments to generate broader organizational results. To get the most from this manual, given its textbook style, practitioners may wish to study it chapter by chapter. Since organizational philosophies, functions and practices differ, it even lends itself to further discussion when HRM professionals gather to share ideas and swap proven practices. We think those in the field will derive a great deal of value from this book.

Ideal for those studying for HR at HNC level and above. Takes a lot of jargon out of the subject and strays away from buzz words and managerial techy speak.
