    I actually enjoyed reading this anthology: it's a superb collection, and with introductory material for each chapter that's concise and fresh. It takes a historical approach, which I found surprisingly helpful for getting a feel for the evolution of an academic discipline: it starts with Taylor and Weber, proceeds through the postwar cyberneticists and human resources theorists to feminism and corporate social responsibility. Most all of the articles are well written and accessible (one or two I actually enjoyed reading this anthology: it's a superb collection, and with introductory material for each chapter that's concise and fresh.

Most all of the articles are well written and accessible (one or two are either turgid or chopped to bits for length). The volume hangs together as a coherent whole better than most any edited collection I can think of. Whether your field is management or science and technology studies, this is a reference you want to have handy.

    A collection of organizational theories. As an professional coach, I find many of the studies useful in establishing foundational theories.

    This was the text for my first course when I was working towards my Master's degree. Only a few articles were really interesting. I remember the Selznick article to be particularly grueling.
