    I read this textbook for my Organizational Theory in Higher Education class. It was a great entry text for an overview of different organizational theories and frameworks. I enjoyed the case studies at the end of each chapter because it provided a practical application of each theory. It wasn't a dense book, but it still had a lot of great information.

    While the information in the book feels relevant, the examples can also feel out of date. Part of the issue of any textbook is the moment it is sent to the printer, it is already behind.
