Not only is this book well written, but it is based on real research - not just an opinion survey. The authors do a great job describing what you can do from different perspectives. You might not be able to change your whole organization, but you can avoid common misnomers and at least handle any situation more informed than using trial-and-error that could cost you emotional energy and wasted time.
