The Job, the Man, the Boss by Katherine M.H. Blackford, M.D.
and
Arthur Newcomb

The book is _scientific_, because it is organized knowledge based upon
verified facts.

It is _practical_, because it has grown out of fifteen years' experience
in advising young men and young women in the choice of their vocations;
counseling employers in choosing, placing, handling and training employees;
investigating industrial and commercial institutions for the purpose of
professional advice upon efficiency in general and increasing the
efficiency of employees in particular; in the installation, operation, and
supervision of employment departments under the _Blackford Employment
Plan_.

It is _definite_, because it recounts in detail the operation of this
Plan, reproducing all forms and blanks used.

It is _clear_, because the story is simply told and illustrated with many
reproductions of photographs.

ARE YOU AN EMPLOYER?

You will find here, fully explained, the scientific basis of
employment--the fundamental principles upon which an efficient working
force is organized. These are not mere theories but are the same
principles upon which all successful employers and managers have built.

Here is a _plan_, too, fully tested in practice, and now in use by many
firms.

Every phase of the relationship between employer and employee is treated
from the standpoint of sound theory and successful practice. These include
_analysing_ the _job_ and the _man_, _choosing executives_, the _art_ of
_handling men_, and _educating employees_.

ARE YOU AN EMPLOYEE?

You want a reliable basis for the analysis of your job, yourself, and your
boss.

You want to know whether you are the man for your job--and, if not, why
not--and what is the remedy.

You want to know why you don't get along with your boss--if you don't--and
what is the _right kind of boss for you._

ARE YOU IN DOUBT ABOUT YOUR VOCATION?

You will find here much that will be helpful to you in solving the
problem.

ARE YOU A PARENT, A TEACHER, A SOCIAL WORKER?

This book analyzes clearly the _Vocational Problem_, and suggests a
practical and effective solution.

ARE YOU A STUDENT OF HUMAN NATURE?

The Job, The Man, The Boss contains _much new material_, the result of
recent research and experimentation, NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED. This throws
light upon some of the most important phases of the science of character
analysis.

"A timely book is this volume of the Newcombs. It has been waited for by
students of management, who have recognized the need of all possible help
in placing the right man in the right job. . . . It is so rich in
suggestion that mere reading, let alone study of the book, is highly
profitable and not without its conviction that the authors have more than
an academic knowledge of the selection and placing of men in work and that
gradually we shall be evolving a science in analyzing 'human capabilities
so far as anything exact is possible in this realm."--Iron Age, July 2,
1914.

There is something--perhaps many things--of vital importance to you in
this book.

Price, bound in cloth, postpaid, $1.75.
