Organizational Behaviour by Buchanan and Huczynski is one of the best established books in this field. The authors’ popular blend of social science underpinning, challenging assumptions, applying theory to practice, and using movies to explore topical issues, makes this an ideal introduction to the subject. This text can be used by undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional students as it assumes no prior knowledge of the social sciences in general, or of organizational behaviour.
