Now in it's seventh edition, this OB reader continues to both instruct and entertain the current generation of students and professionals about workplace realities. This book consists of a series of short, interwoven stories about the operations at a single, mythical company seen through the eyes of an employee. It reveals the psychological processes and social mores at work in a company, and it is uniquely valuable for helping to bridge the gap between theory and practice. It immerses readers in the "real-world" workplace as no other text does, and provides just enough theory to make sense of it. The new edition will continue with the same premise and will contain updated stories and chapters.

Steven Levy is a senior editor for "Newsweek." For ten years he wrote the "Iconoclast" column for "MacWorld" magazine. His previous books include "Hackers" & "Artificial Life."
