By believing that life is fair, we tend to subscribe to the ";just-world phenomenon,"; which leaves us unprepared for the challenges and competition of the real world.Now Pfeffer brings decades of his incredible insights to a wider audience. Brimming with counterintuitive advice, numerous examples from various countries, and surprising findings based on his research, this groundbreaking guide reveals the strategies and tactics that separate the winners from the losers.
