A textbook for supervisors, so comprehensive that it should prove valuable, although the approach offers little new. He gives the qualities necessary; the basic principles in selection, understanding and training of the worker. There are good chapters on job specification, job evaluation and rating of individuals. The author has a warmly sympathetic human approach to the workers' problems and there are numerous personal experiences and anecdotes. The coverage extends from the initial interview to the final dismissal interview. There's an excellent bibliography of the outstanding books in the personnel and industrial field. The appendix includes an individual check sheet for noting the strong and weak points of a supervisor.
