Can you succeed without being a terrible person? We often think not: recognizing that, as the old saying has it, "nice guys finish last." But does that mean you have to go to the other extreme and be a bully or Machiavellian to get anything done? In The Art of Fairness, author David Bodanis uses thrilling case studies to show there's a better path, leading neatly in between. He reveals how it was fairness, applied with skill, that led to the speedy development of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, to construction of the Empire State Building to be constructed in barely a year, and to a quiet English debutante becoming an acclaimed jungle guerrilla fighter in World War II. In ten vivid profiles featuring pilots, filmmakers, baseball managers, and more, we see that the path to greatness doesn't require crushing displays of power or tyrannical ego. Simple fair decency can prevail.
