"Guion and Highhouse treat all topics with the respect they deserve, and as a result they provide students with a clear, concise and accurate treatment of many important concepts...I believe that both students and veterans of employment research and selection will find it a highly valuable resource."
-University of North Carolina
"Essentials of Personnel Assessment and Selection by Guion and Highhouse provides a comprehensive treatment of cutting-edge topics involved in the area of assessment and selection with an emphasis on the most important measurement issues. Logically organized and with great depth of scholarship, it should be a 'must read' for all graduate students in I/O psychology, as well as for more experienced I/O researchers. Even the most applied practitioner will surely benefit from the interpretation of the most recent research in the area."
Central Michigan University
"This book is both thorough and well-organized, with relevant and interesting examples as well as up-to-date references. The book is well balanced in containing the rich theoretical and practical advice based on Guion's wealth of experience, while also being the 'right' size for most instructors, practitioners, and students."
