Power: Why Some People Have It — and Others Don’t

 Jeffrey Pfeffer is the Professor of Organizational Behavior at theGraduate School Of Business,Stanford University.

“I wrote the book for three audiences,”Jeffrey Pfeffer said

(1)“First of all, people who work in organizations and want to be more successful than they currently are need to understand the rules of the game, which are not necessarily the rules they are told.
(2)“Number two, I wrote it for people who’ve already become powerful and want to maintain their power. They need to understand the potential problems of having power, and why and how people lose it.
(3)“Third, the book is for people who are just interested in understanding the games that go on inside of companies so that they can become more astute observers of the organizations they deal with on a daily basis.”
