The Gray Flannel Soul

Magid, Nora
August 1955
New Republic;8/8/55, Vol. 133 Issue 6, p19
The article focuses on the book "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit," by Sloan Wilson. Wilson is obviously at home with the tycoon and his peculiar problems, and the sections of his book are competent. But so many extraneous ingredients are tossed into the mixture for good measure, that it never has the chance to set into any kind of shape at all. But for all its clutter and contrivance, the book is readable. It conforms to the current formula, big business, lightly spiced with sex and a dash of wartime reminiscence.
