D. A. Spence’s The Right Staff is a short but informative book that
every businessperson out there will find useful. Through a series of examples tips, and tests, Spence leads entrepreneurs through what is at times the most difficult aspect of their job: the choice of
the right employee. Human capital is one of the most valuable

She invites one to re-evaluate traditional expectations on employees as well as the tyrannical (and unfair) image of bosses. Her aim is to help businesspersons to create the right atmosphere to achieve better results. I liked the many examples she makes, and I appreciated the Three-Tier Selection Process, which should help bosses to go through the hiring process easily. I liked the practical purpose of this book, and I think it achieves this well. The tone is engaging, and some funny cartoons clarify the topic and make you smile. I recommend The Right Staff to every
