Another non-environmental wonder

Rare are the times a comment on Amazon is worth reading, but this one is a gem of a response to Stanford professor Jeffrey Pfeffer's new book 'Power: Why Some People Have It and Others Don't' (hint - if the title doesn't appeal, you're probably not the right audience for the book):

"The book promises to tell you about the 'real' nature of leadership opportunities...if you want to garner power, it's more important to play the game than to perform well. Which, I guess I actually agree with to a large degree, but that's only news to an academic."
