Publisher's Summary

One may view industrial/organizational psychology as the merger of industry, organization, and its relation to psychology. Industrial relates to industry, referencing, “the economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories.” The organization is “an organized body of people with a particular purpose, especially a business, society, or association.” Psychology represents the scientific study of behavior and mind. Industrial/organizational psychology is the merger of these three entities into a single scientific discipline. More simply put, industrial/organizational psychology is the study of the workplace and the interactions among the organization, the goal of industrial/organizational psychology being to contribute to this success among individual and organization.

Difficult to listen to, good information

The author repeatedly uses an awkward sentence structure ("Making it difficult to listen to is the sentence structure; increasing the difficulty is the inflection.") Also, the reader uses a repeated rising inflection, alternating with a semi-monotonous high inflection. The makes it hard to follow the flow of concepts, as the reading lacks the normal conclusion indicators of changed inflection.
