Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Brimming with frank, realistic insights on paths to the top, this book offers unexpected - and aggressive - directions on how to advance and flourish in an ever-more competitive workplace." - Publishers Weekly

"...a highly effective lesson on acquiring, using, and keeping power in organizational settings...[David Drummond’s] narration is engaged and genuine...a well-delineated reality check for executives with frustrated ambitions and stalled careers." - AudioFile Magazine

"[Academics and consultants] have an interest in presenting business as a rational enterprise...This leaves the analysis of power to retired businesspeople...(who strive to present themselves as business geniuses rather than Machiavellis) and practicing snake-oil salesmen...Jeffrey Pfeffer of Stanford Business School is an exception to this rule." - The Economist

"[Power] ought to be required reading for would-be leaders...[E]xcellent." - Financial Times

"[Power] will help you get comfortable with challenging assumptions and lingering on the pause...[Pfeffer] draws on a wealth of social-science and psychology research." - Inc.

"Pfeffer [blends] academic rigor and practical genius into wonderfully readable text. The leading thinker on the topic of power, Pfeffer here distills his wisdom into an indispensable guide." - Jim Collins, author Good to Great and How the Mighty Fall
