"Fundamentals of Human Resource Management ", by Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart and Wright is specifically written to provide a complete introduction to human resource management for the general business manager. This book is the most engaging, focused and applied HRM text on the market. Fundamentals of HRM differs from the hardback textbook by the same author team. Instead of a higher level of theory that's geared towards the HRM majors, this book focuses on the uses of human resources for the general business manager. Issues such as strategy are reduced to give a greater focus on how human resources management is used in the everyday work environment.
