10. The Art of Fairness: The Power of Decency in a World Turned Mean (David Bodanis)
Can success be achieved without using your elbows and being ruthless? Yes says David Bodanis in “The Art of Fairness” and he explains why through the use of many historical case studies. For example, fairness and ability led to the Empire State Building’s completion in barely a year. Ten professional profiles such as pilots and presidents show that fairness and decency go a long way. The book also shows how teams can be led in a decent way regardless of size, format and type. It is an all-encompassing guide that encourages us to succeed without selling our souls.
