POWER Why Some People Have It and Others Don't

by | Read by David Drummond

Personal Growth • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Here is a highly effective lesson on acquiring, using, and keeping power in organizational settings. Narrator David Drummond’s phrasing lacks the variability that might have given this book more personality. But overall his narration is engaged and genuine. In 13 well-organized chapters, the author tells how to network with, position oneself with, speak with, and identify with powerful people. He’s especially adept at convincing his audience to give up the mistaken belief that achievements alone will be enough to earn power—the “fair world” assumption. The activism and skills he recommends are illustrated by vivid case studies. The result is a well-delineated reality check for executives with frustrated ambitions and stalled careers.
