Joseph Grzywacz's and Evangelia Demerouti's edited book "New Frontiers in Work Family Research" lives up to the promise forborne by its title. This book will be valuable to scholars and students at all career levels as well as research oriented practitioners. New and under-emphasized theories such as positive organizational scholarship, chain of events, and systems theory are included. New methods from bio data, to experience sampling to direct observational methods are clearly explained. Key work-family concepts are reviewed, scrutinized and unpacked, and the interrelated recursive nature of work-family relationships are explored.
