It took me a while to realise how good this book is. I have had versions of it for some years and dipped into it on and off, but eventually I read it end-to-end (which the authors discourage), and really liked what I read. The authors have a great balance of theory and practical knowledge.

I like the first part of the book and the differentiation between individual, team and organisational change which is essential for the change practitioner to understand. Yet few writers really get to grips with this. I also like the way that they present theory and then give their views on it. However, I found the second half of the book on practical applications less convinving and at times somewhat rambling. There is good advice there, but there is also a certain amount of waffle.

This book is a good starting point if you want to know more about change management: what it is and how it works at very high level. It is far too focused on theories and on reporting what other authors said on change.
The first part of the book discusses the most important theories (I suggest not dismissing the importance of this aspect but if you are already familiar with the work of Schein, Kotter and the most important authors on the topic this book would be just a de-ja-vu). I was very disappointed with the chapter on change agents, as it is a condensed version of Flawless Consulting by Block!
The second part of the book is supposed to focus on the "practical" applications of change management. It is very high level and if you want a "how-to" manual this is not the place to look.
The book is a good starting point if you are new to change management, but for a more pragmatic angle I would like at Kotter and Beitler (just to name a couple of reliable authors). IMO this book is very over rated.

Cameron and Green's 3rd edition Making Sense of Change Management is in its own a masterpiece on the passionate and complex subject of change management. The book provides an evolving approach starting with the individual change up to the organizational one. A couple of real cases are presented providing great understanding of the application process. The final section gives an insight of emerging inquiries which I truly found remarkable. Vey helpful are the summary sections in the end of each chapter. The presentation and pros and cons of different theories is quite useful with a 360º perspective. My humble suggestion of improvement is to include some more on-line links where we could find individual profile tests i.e. MBTI and the alike.

From what I've read so far, this is a great guide to the field of change management. Not sure it suits the kindle format for me as I would prefer it in a paper copy so that I can make notes easier and flick through the book more easily. Still it is a very useful text book as it covers both the procedural and human factors of change which are so important.

Comprehensive view, pragmatic, holistic approach, tools and techniques to apply ...It empowers one to think of change as a strategic view rather than apply tactics which would be limited to specific circumstances.
