In a fascinating analysis of the great sociological and psychological thinkers - including Freud, Durkheim, Maslow, Skinner and Mead - this erudite yet unconventional text challenges the foundations of modern managerial thought. Aimed at students in management, organisational behaviour, managerial psychology and related subjects, and equally useful to practising managers, "Personality and Performance" is a critique of the popular view that if managers can understand their colleagues personalities, they can manage them more effectively.
