Wow, I'm not even 20 pages in and the authors have already made fun of Ayn Rand and libertarianism. This is going to be a Really annoying text book to read. Great.

Yup, hated it. Only consolation is that I didn't read much of it. Pbbbbbt!

Hated this book. Incredibly biased, ignorant and poorly written - I wanted to take an ice pick to my eyeballs for being forced to read it, and thankful that I was able to get away with not reading much of it.
Amber
Very good introductory book for public administration students. Took me awhile to get into it, but once you become accustomed to their style of writing it's very good.
Chelsea
Well, it's my professor's recommendation. But after finished it, I don't really like it.

Who doesn't want to read a book about organizational theory (unless forced)?
