"Organizational Behavior: Human Behavior at Work, 13e" is a solid research-based and referenced text known for its very readable style and innovative pedagogy.

As in previous editions, this edition will be filled with practical, applied advice and a widely accepted, and specially updated, presentation of five models of organizational behavior that provides an integrating framework throughout the book.
