First British Edition. [First Published: 1962] From the cover: VANCE PACKARD studies the hustling, well-packaged American executives striving to move up the slippery slopes of enterprise, and describes their training, selection and promotion, and all the dead-ends, and disasters that wait along the way.
Outside the U.S.A., the Americans methods of selecting managers and executives have aroused both horror and respect, derision and serious study. This book analyses both the conflicts, taboos, false lures and pitfalls as well as demonstrating the misunderstandings which have falsified the true picture of the system.
