"The comprehensiveness of this book is especially impressive because it is the work of a single author...The book informs and challenges one in so many areas... A book of 561 pages and maybe 2000 references, giving an authoritative account of a major field of activity for occupational psychologists must be an important resource. It will help any reader clarify his or her understanding of half-grasped principles, introduce new areas and suggest new lines for future research." --THE OCCUPATIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST "The 500+ pages of the book comprehensively cover the major areas dealing with the training function...The book provides the thoughtful reader with a level and breadth of information that enables wise decision making. In fact, the book represents an excellent text to be used in advanced graduate courses in an industrial/organizational psychology program... The reader of Training will finish the book with a great deal of information about the training function... The readers who invest the time needed to come to grips with this book will find that they earn a good return on their investment." --PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY
