"This book combines a fine blend of recent research and relevant theory with illuminating illustrative examples from the world of work. This text will be of value not just to students of psychology, but also to managers who will glean interesting insights into the thoughts, attitudes and behaviour of their employees." -- Professor Owen Hargie, University of Ulster, UK "This book provides an up-to-date review of current work on trait psychology in the workplace. It is accessible and easy to read for both the student and the busy manager. The author does not duck away from controversial issues and in fact, his views on these add spice to the debate." -- Elizabeth Chell, Institute of Entrepreneurship, University of Southampton, UK
