"McKenna's approach is scholarly, presenting research evidence for and against controversial topics before arriving at well-considered conclusions. … (A text such as this) earns its place on the bookshelf of psychology undergraduates as a comprehensive core text." - Anne Kearns, retired Chartered Occupational Psychologist in The Psychologist
"This book presents the important theoretical and conceptual issues along with multiple relevant, real-life examples. Readers should be able to fully understand and appreciate the importance of psychology to behaviour in individual, organisational and societal settings. A core text for anyone interested in human behaviour in organisations!" - Sharon Feeney, College of Business, Dublin Institute of Technology, Republic of Ireland
"This substantially revised edition of McKenna’s classic textbook is a labour of love. It enables people interested in human behaviour in the workplace, but without a background in psychology, to follow the development of this influential discipline. It is a wide ranging, honest and representative survey of the field and is a very useful resource to undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals in occupational psychology, business studies and management science." - George Erdos, Senior Lecturer, School of Psychology, Newcastle University, UK
