Yet business psychology too is, after all, psychology, that is, a science which needs serious and penetrating study. No one ought to believe that a science can be mastered in any other way than by serious study. Such a study involves, first of all, the laying of solid foundations. We must therefore plod through much material which seems at a superficial glance unimportant for a business man. The first half of the volume hardly speaks of buying and selling and advertising and selecting workers. It is devoted to a careful treatment of perceptions and memories and feelings, but this apparently unpractical study is needed if the later practical discussions are not to hang in the air"--Preface.
