The 'fish book' has become a phenomenal success story. Primarily used as a 2nd year level text for students majoring in Management, the popularity and widespread use of the text has enabled us to gain further insight into developing this next edition to meet the needs of the market. This text addresses contemporary topics in a depth that other textbooks have yet to achieve.Students are kept up-to-date with: revised case studies and boxed features; daily OB news from around the country, through Press Gallery; and, updated coverage of concepts. Written in clear, uncomplicated language, the text has been commended for linking learning with work-related behaviour and its focus on essential concepts and smooth transition from theory to practice. The examples are real, current and thought-provoking and relate to student's experience and interest. The book maintains a Pacific Rim focus whilst including international examples to ensure that students are exposed to OB on a broader scale.
