It was really interesting. The chapters are designed in a very organised way, so that any introductory person can learn HRM well.

- The concepts of "industrial relations" (or "labour relations") and "employee share ownerhsip" could be added
- References may be more oriented to academic literature sources (guiding students to further readings...)
- There is a slight cultural bias on UK (e.g., CIPD, statutory bodies)
