"Well-researched, well-written, and is clearly signposted and structured for the reader. The learning objectives at the outset of every chapter act as a clear guide for each topic explored. Additional references and further reading are also offered to the student seeking deeper knowledge. Case studies, throughout the book, bring the HRM theories to life and demonstrably link these with practice.
