Resizing The Organization edited by Kenneth De Meuse and Mitchell Lee Marks

This book largely deals with layoffs and managing companies into the ground. Unfortunately, none of the chapters sought to explain why companies bunch their layoffs together instead of firing people more frequently.

This book is dedicated to all the employees and their families who have been resized.
