Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 634–635. Reviews the book, Alternative Work Schedules: Integrating Individual and Organizational Needs by Allan R. Cohen and Herman Gadon (1978). Like other books in the Addison Wesley series on organization development (OD), this is a brief, well-written, and well-referenced work oriented toward applications. It is appropriate for managers and OD consultants. Despite some disappointing features, Cohen and Gadon have produced a valuable contribution by pulling together in a single volume basic information concerning alternative work schedules. This book is especially useful for stimulating a consideration of where, when, and how alternative work schedules might be profitably considered as a means for reducing the negative consequences associated with job dissatisfaction and a lack of organizational commitment.
