Book Description

"Each one of us feels in his own experience an insistent urge to speciahze in order that he may do, not a variety of things, but a few things better and more quickly. He must swim with the stream or he will not survive. It is true in business as in science. In one way this concentration is good, and in another it is bad. It is good since it is the essence of progress which makes the world a better place to hve in, but the individual suffers. The more successful he is as a specialist, the more difficult it is for him to avoid becoming narrow-minded. Because he does not understand the hopes and aspirations of others he may also become intolerant. He may adopt a condescending attitude toward his fellows whom he regards as less favored." (Preface)
