org fitNew Books Reviewed

I'm delighted to say that my two most recent books have been reviewed in leading journals. Organizational Fit: Key Issues and New Directions, which Amy Kristof-Brown and I co-edited, was reviewed in Personnel Psychology (click here) and Moving Images: Effective Teaching with Film and Television in Management was reviewed in the Academy of Management Learning & Education (click here). Both reviews were conducted by experts in the field and were absolutely glowing.

moving imagesMoving Images: "As one who has written and presented frequently on the use of media in the classroom, I highly recommend Moving Images for instructors at every level of teaching-undergraduate, graduate, and executive. I was surprised by how much I gained from reading the book. Many of the tips and suggestions about using media were common to me, but example from specific movies frequently provided "aha moments" whiere I realized teaching illustrations I had missed when I viewed these titles. In addition, there are plenty of general lessons about pedagogy helpful for every academic to consider."

Organizational Fit: "Organizational Fit: Key Issues and New DIrections is an outstanding volume. The goal of the book is to go beyond the current research on the fit of individuals and organizatons to begin to develop new approaches to the study of the area. The authors certainly have achieved this goal and more. Kristof-Brown and Billsberry bring together some of the key researchers in the arena to provide an exciting and thought-provoking work. ... the editors have really done an excellent job with this volume ... This work makes an important contribution to the research on organizational fit and should have an impact on shaping the field for years to come."
