Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Discussing topics such as communication, marketing, employee motivation and discipline, material management, budgeting, and information management, the vast majority of this text for beginning managers in dietetics could just as well be included in any general text on management. Some limited information focusing on dieticians is included such as food control, type of work processes, and facilities design. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
