Really thorough

Man... he really does a comprehensive job of taking 45+ years of experience and compacting it into one source. If you're having to read this for a promotional exam, I highly recommend getting the audio book and using it to read along.

John Norman

This is not the full book, missing chapter 23, this seems like the 4th edition

30 year veteran of a career department

Very good content, I preferred it coming from the author. I have a BC test coming up with this being part of the test. I'll definitely be referring to this material beyond the promotional test!
