5.0 out of 5 stars power - how to get it - and what it does to you, 11 May 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Winner Effect: How Power Affects Your Brain (Hardcover)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which I found to be both entertaining and informative. The author, Ian Robertson,explains here why some people reach positions of great influence and power, and what motivates them to do so, whilst others do not.

Brought to life with numerous anecdotes concerning political figures including Blair, Clinton, Napoleon, and Angela Merkel,as well as business and sports figures such as Jeff Skilling, the former boss of Enron, and Tiger Woods, this book looks at how the need for power drives some individuals and on, and the effects that such power can have on them over time.

Although I have read fair number of books about the development of peoples' performance, and about leadership in general there was much here that I found new and fascinating.

Wearing red can actually affect your performance, Oscar winners live on average 4 years longer than other movie stars and Nobel prize winners 2 years longer than their peers who are not recognised in this way. This book explains why, and makes for fascinating reading and discussions.

Highly recommended
