AN article on report writing in a recent issue of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering tabulated series of questions regarding the readers for whom the report is intended and the purpose in wriiilgUhe report which it was suggested a writer woiM do well to consider before putting pen to paper. Looking at the growing mass of books on management in all its aspects, it is difficult to believe that some of the authors have honestly faced the questions listed in that article or that, if they have done so, would dare to publish the honest answers. For the most part, however, British publications in this field represent genuine contributions to the science or art of management and are less open to that charge of pot-boiling.
