Editorial Reviews

¿Riggio has provided an excellent overview of theory and research in I/O in a manner that is easy to grasp and accessible to students." - Viviane Seyranian, Whittier College ¿This text book is clearly written and well structured. A number of relevant insights from the applied literature are included in an accessible manner. This provides a useful link between theory, evidence and application to real world organisations. This textbook provides a useful and well-argues treatment of relatively more abstract and difficult topics such as motivation and leadership. Overall, it is a commendable effort.¿- Abhijit Sharma, Bradford University School of Management ¿The book is organized in a very logical and approachable way and would make it easy to relate lecture material to. I can see my lectures and this text to work together well."- Adam Marcantel, University of Louisiana-Lafayette
