KIRKUS REVIEW

An important addition to business literature is this autobiography of a shoe factory, the Nunn-Bush Company, which has received much publicity for its labor practices which include 52 pay checks a year in spite of lay-offs, profit-sharing, and labor representation on the Executive Board. These policies have given rise to much controversy through the years among both management and unionists, but Mr. Nunn ably explains his procedures and defends himself against the charges of paternalism, company unionism and socialism, with which he has been constantly confronted. An open-minded reader cannot but feel that here is a middle-ground based on one man's practiced belief that no business can succeed if industry does not take into consideration that the ""whole man"", his insecurities and prejudices and frustrations, ""goes to work"". A good book for all echelons, right down the line.
