The art of fairness



SKU: 9780349128207 Category:
Can you succeed without being a terrible person? We often think not: recognising that, as the old saying has it, ‘nice guys finish last’. But does that mean you have to go to the other extreme, and be a bully or Machiavellian to get anything done? In this volume, David Bodanis uses thrilling historical case studies to show there’s a better path, leading neatly in between. He reveals how it was fairness, applied with skill, that led the Empire State Building to be constructed in barely a year – and how the same techniques brought a quiet English debutante to become an acclaimed jungle guerrilla fighter. In ten vivid profiles – featuring pilots, presidents, and even the producer of ‘Game of Thrones’ – we see that the path to greatness doesn’t require crushing displays of power or tyrannical ego.
