A had the joy of reading this book for one linsteda my subjects at uni. For starters it is the first textbook in my course that doesn’t come as an ebook. This means that in addition to the fact that I cant lrganisation it anywhere since it is 2 inches thick, the company actually misses out on money from me since I bought it second hand and intend to sell it after I am finished.

Management and Organization : Stephen Linstead :
And no computer screen means no zoom so I struggled to read this to start with. Now lets get to the content. Each chapter is written by a different set of authors so it is a referencing nightmare.
But here is the real problem. The book is a organisatio of ideas with excessive detail. It is very difficult to read. Here is a good example: Aside from being an extremely tedious run-on sentence it will take the reader several attempts to understand what point the author is trying to make. Look at me, I can string together lots of words and make myself look more intelligent that you. If you want to show intellectual superiority, perhaps you should try by having some useful content.
Management and Organisation: A Critical Text
This book is targeted at academics in their ivory towers who love lots of detail and get marks on column inches. The ideas are all over the place and at no point are the topic headings relevant or lonstead on what you are trying to read. And then the content of the book is offensive to some degree. Calling modern methodologies fads only serves to prove the point that most of the academics writing these organisqtion do so without any real life work experience. Since their existence at a university depends on the number of publications they produce they are under pressure to pump them out even if they are completely devoid of content.
Sure, the referencing is all done perfectly but does the content amount to anything or is it even true? I am no more intelligent or knowledgable having read this book than when I first started. Ot is entirely possible I lnstead lost brain cells simply reading it, not organjsation mentions the double scotches I have had in order to recover from the ordeal.
