Human Resource Management Study Games is an innovative approach with many concepts that will attract faculty and HR trainers because of its global usefulness, ease of use, the synergy it creates, and ‘real world’ application. This book encourages a novel way of learning other than reading or sitting through a lecture. It can be adapted for a myriad of uses other than the classroom such as certifications, organizational development and training. The ‘hands on’ concept is very novel in that it creates direct contact and enables participants with different learning abilities to successfully learn with better retention. These exercises will ensure participation of everyone involved in any learning process, maintain their attention, and provide almost immediate feedback. I would highly recommend this book to faculty and anyone involved in the training field.
