The relaxed tone of Tom Perkins's intelligent performance makes it easy to stay engaged with this multilayered lesson on working with others. The authors, articulate professors at A-list business schools, survey a broad range of research about how we influence and resolve conflicts with people. Explaining that scarce resources, our social natures, and life's vicissitudes are the ever-present reasons that competition with others is here to stay, they use vivid examples from various arenas to show how people strike a balance between cooperating and playing hardball. They share studies that explain, to name a few examples, how social comparisons and context can influence how we define success in various transactions. The result is a pleasing combination of an excellent reading and accessible writing about an important aspect of everyone's life. T.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
