`The book is a good read. Gabriel has an engaging writing style, liberally interspersed with vignettes, cases, and quotes...While the reader may not agree with some of what Gabriel is espousing, the author presents his material in a non-judgemental manner.... And who knows? Maybe Gabriel is foreshadowing some new directions in organizational theory and even new research methodology' -Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology
