How To Be Better At Motivating People - Jon Allen, Kogan Page/The Industrial Society; £8

This is a crisp survey of a range of management challenges. Case studies and questions to the reader all add variety. Most aspects of working life are considered; indeed, the book's slightly depressing thoroughness is the only demotivating thing about it. (Best of its kind)

Don't Fire Them, Fire Them Up - Frank Pacetta, Simon and Schuster; £8.99

'This isn't just a book, it's life - real life,' claims the author. If being harangued with enthusiastic declarations motivate you, then this is the book for you. Others of a more delicate constitution may prefer the restrained tone of a more conventional primer. (Of minor interest)

The Tao of Motivation - Max Landsberg, Pitman; £13.99

Why Tao? Because 'you can't motivate someone else if you are not motivated yourself'; yin-yang, do you see? Even if you don't, this faintly mystical book is bound to help some managers while bamboozling others. (Of minor interest).
