"Unlike many survey ‘how-to’ books, this book is clear, well-written, practical, and insightful. I highly recommend it to those interested in conducting organizational surveys or managing a consultant/ vendor that is supplying survey services to an organization." 

TECHNO

This is one of the only practical guides available that is focused on organizational surveys instead of surveys in general.
