Summary

“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 of New York Times best-selling author Good to Great and How the Mighty Fall)

Some people have it, and others don’t. Jeffrey Pfeffer explores why, in Power.

One of the greatest minds in management theory and author or co-author of 13 books, including the seminal business-school text Managing With Power, Jeffrey Pfeffer shows listeners how to succeed and wield power in the real world.

Excellent overview of the topic of power.

Haven't read much in this topic and was looking for an easy-to-understand overview. This was perfect. Written in a very accessible style, based on sound research, and struck a nice balance between being practical and honest, but not ruthless. Highly recommend as an introduction to the topic.
