Management Learning Book Review Award 2016


The above took me completely by surprise, a lovely start to 2017.

I didn’t even know there were sumanagement-learning-book-award-2016ch things as awards for book reviews in this journal. Reviewing a useful text is one of the more pleasurable academic activities, heartily to be recommended. We all have to read or skim new books as they appear, and make decisions about whether to recommend or not to our students or colleagues. Why not do the job properly and write a serious review?

This particular book was interesting because it tried to tackle a big gap in current degree study, trying to encourage students to read journal articles. The author’s approach is detailed and highly justified, though not always feasible. Read the review in Management Learning to find out more. Better still, read the book for yourself.

The book in question is:

How to read journal articles in the social sciences: A very practical guide for students (2nd Edition) by Phillip Chong Ho Shon – University of Ontario Institute of Technology

published by SAGE in the SAGE Study Skills Series.
