"Combining HR science and soul, this soup-to-nuts book brilliantly tells how HR works, how HR pros make it work, and how you can make HR your career that works." -- Chip R. Bell, author, Managers as Mentors "With over sixty years of combined HR experience, the Kahnweilersâ continued passion for HR comes through in this book. Their passion, however, does not preclude them from giving an honest portrayal of HR â the good and not-so-good. Their insights are right on, presenting the reader with a real foundation for success in HR. This book characterizes HR in real-world practical terms rather than in abstract superlatives, and illustrates the challenges HR professionals confront on a daily basis. This book is worthwhile for anyone in HR but particularly so for those somewhat new to HR and those considering an HR career. I wish I had read this book twenty years ago." -- Steve Hewitt, Senior Professional in Human Resources, The Hewitt Group
