THERE'S PLENTY OF ROOM AT THE TOP

Postponed from its December date -- reported Oct. 1 as follows:- ""The author's years of experience as advisor to many of the country's outstanding corporations and to many executives in all types of positions, Loire Brophy gives a deep insight into the inner workings of successful business and into the minds and hearts of executives on the way up (and perhaps on the way out, as well). This is worth a lot to junior executives and to those in highly responsible positions, for she indicates many of the pitfalls in certain types of jobs in relation to top management. The author presents cold hard facts on how to act in considering new jobs, what obstacles to expect and how to overcome them when on the job. She discusses fearlessly what many executives must face in office politio, family relationships in business, executive intrigue. She tells management how to select executives and how to handle them to bring out their best. Full of information for the executive who wants to know how to gain cooperation and confidence of other executives, how to conserve health and peace of mind, how to use ability to the utmost. She discusses the values of staff meetings and business conferences; when to write and when to phone. We know of no book published in the last ten years containing more wisdom for budding executives. Some may find it crudely forthright, but it packs a punch.""...Good for vocational shelves- for college libraries- for veterans' reference shelves, etc.
