“In his book, Dr Kaila has cared much to include the theoretical concepts, researches, case studies and applications of organizational psychology which are of much interest and use to not only the students who would study this subject matter in much depth, but also to the practicing managers in organizations. The content coverage is quite wider than the books available currently. The best aspect about this book is ‘the research cases based on Indian organizations’ included in every chapter of this text book which is very useful for students.
