The professional body for whole life management of physical assets

Recommended Reading

The Institute has established a category of Recommended for books and other publications that may be of interest.  These may include material for either expert Asset Managers or beginners. 

In most cases the IAM will have had no part in the content of these publications until approached for our endorsement.  Recommended books will have been subjected to a high-level but formal peer review procedure but do not necessarily reflect the official views of the IAM.
(Official IAM Publications will have our full style and logo.)

Can you suggest a book that deserves 'Recommendation'

If you have not yet published a book and would like to include our Recommended mark we would also appreciate the opportunity to contribute to a Foreword. 

We are especially keen to offer discount or other benefits to Members - whether or not we are able to distribute them we may promote them by providing hyperlinks. 

If you would like us to consider a book you think other Members might like to read, please let us know via email.
