A SELECTED list of books under the heading "A Business Man's Library" compiled by the Management Library has been issued by the National Book Council, 3 Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, London, W.C.2, from which copies may be obtained. The list covers purchasing, factory management, personnel and industrial psychology, sales management, market research, advertising, transport, general management, accountancy and statistics, commercial law, industrial biography and industrial history. While not exhaustive, it includes most of the significant recent additions to the literature of this field and is a useful adjunct to the more comprehensive "Business Man's Guide to Management", the fifth edition of which has just been published by the Management Library (23 Bloomsbury Square, W.C.I). In addition to the classified lists of books, with brief descriptive notes on their scope or contents, the latter contains a subject index, a publisher index and an author index as well as suggested courses of reading. Reference to the main divisions, general management, accounting, production, distribution, company secretary, psychology, industrial economics, in which the books are listed is facilitated by use of different coloured paper for these divisions.
