Sizing a motor using a pump curve

Does anyone have any good articles that explain how one should size a motor based off a pump curve? I have read in one article to size the motor based on the far runout on the pump curve (max flow with lower head) for centrifugal pumps, is that correct? I was hoping for some good facts to make correct decision for sizing motors?
