From the Author Why did I write this book?  People frequently ask me why I decided to write a paperback book on Organizational Behavior.  The answer is three fold. First, I wanted to write a book on this topic because of my desire to influence how students think about the best way to influence and manage others, particularly in today's team-based organizations.   In a small way, I hope that our book positively impacts the way managers manage, thereby having a positive effect on the lives of others.  My goal is to influence the lives of others! The second reason revolves around the quality of textbooks that existed when Bob Kreitner--my coauthor--and I began writing the 1st edition of this book in 2001.  At that time, there were two types of organizational textbooks.  The first consisted of the hardback books that presented a comprehensive treatment of the subject--and we already published one of these--and the second were short and boring paperbacks.  We thought that the market place could use a shorter treatment of the subject that also was interesting, practical, and research-based.  The final reason revolves around Bob.  Bob and I had already written a successful hardback book on the topic of organizational behavior and it was a natural extension to write this book.  My collaboration with Bob has been one of the best working relationship and personal friendships in my life!
Users of this book can expect to read an up-to-date, practical, interesting, and easy to read treatment about the field of organizational behavior.  This book is not as comprehensive as Kreitner and Kinicki's Organizational Behavior 9e.
