THE sixth annual edition of the “Business Man's Guide to Management” covers all books published up to the end of 1937. In addition to the classified lists of books, with brief descriptive notes on their contents, a subject index, a publisher index, an author index and suggested courses for reading, a numerical and page index is now included. Reference to the main divisions—general management, accounting, production, distribution, company secretary, psychology, industrial economics, public administration, and individual trades—is facilitated by use of distinctive paper for each of these divisions. The more outstanding books published in 1937 are listed separately in the preface ; this enhances the value of this cumulative guide to an important and voluminous section of literature.
