′Indispensable and subversive′ - Simon Caulkin, The Observer

`This is an essential introduction to the critical analysis of organizations which can be thoroughly recommended to all students coming to this subject new. In a writing style which is lucid, witty and informative, Grey shows how the study of organizations is central to all our lives. He resues organization studies from managerial hype and places it back at the centre of our understanding of the social, ethical and political dilemmas of the twenty-first century.

This is the book which management students have been waiting for.

This book is for you if:

- you get impatient with heavy, conventional and lengthy textbooks

- you are fed up with the trite simplicities of the management gurus

- you are dismayed by dry, worthy, alternative views

- you want to show your lecturer you have done some extra reading

It is an antidote to the boring textbook and it is compatible with any degree course on management and organizations. It will challenge your thinking and it will help you get a good mark in your exam. And it′s cheap. Should you buy it? It′s a no-brainer.

I liked the style this book was written in. It kept my attention, and overall the theory behind the book and all of its chapters were very insightful and I agreed with them. The only downside I had with this book was that I disagreed with some of Grey's points of views within the sub-categories of the text. And this is hardly a complaint, since one cannot expect to agree with everyone. Seeing others points of view which differ from yours are good, but it was the books weak point. Overall, very satisfied and glad I read it!
