This book shows aremarkable breadth of coverage: topics traditional and cuttingedge, science and practice, issues within and across levels, bycontributions with extensive and diverse experience inorganizational consulting. There's something here for anyoneinterested in a psychological approach to consulting inorganizations." -- Rosemary Hays-Thomas, professor ofpsychology, The University of West Florida

"The Handbook of Organizational Consulting Psychologyaddresses a longtime need for a new comprehensive major work inconsulting psychology. It is broad in scope and clearly integratestopics in consulting psychology that are at the core of the fieldand which reflect recent innovations in the application ofconsulting principles and techniques. The scope and depth of thisbook is not only timely but unique. I would expect this book tobecome an essential reference for all consulting psychologists."--Clyde A. Crego, California State University Long Beach andUniversity of Southern California and former president, AmericanPsychological Association Division of Consulting Psychology andFellow, APA

"My one-word reaction: WOW! Aptly entitled a handbook, it couldnevertheless well serve as a basic text in the field. It may haveits greatest benefit to those who are transiting from morespecialized work into organizational consulting, since it lays outa broad range of issues that one may encounter and ought to beprepared to deal with along with some practical advice on how tohandle them." --Kenneth H. Bradt, consulting psychologist andpast president, Society of Consulting Psychology, AmericanPsychological Association
