An intelligent factual job on this phase of personnel administration, but it lacks that vital spark that would take it out of routine. He has studied the practices and techniques of many of the companies outstanding in personnel work, with regard to testing, interviewing and indoctrinating new employees. He analyzes various types of tests that have been used successfully,- mental, manual, personality tests, special purpose tests. The author has behind him practical experience in the field for over 30 years and has published some of the standard books on personnel management, training and supervision. The young executive who knows little about selection and aiding new employees will find this book useful, but it adds little to the knowledge of those with background and experience in the field.
