While today’s rich and powerful are fighting for equality and justice, Winners Take All argues that it is being done in a way that will preserve their position at the top of society.      source
@AnandWrites is hypnotically articulate and undeniably correct. Listen to this. @winnerstakeall is a book you need to read. It changed the way I think about economic inequality and what we need to do about it. Must read.      source
I'm ready to be excommunicated from the VC world: I enjoyed @AnandWrites' book. In fact, you should come on #BusinessDad so we can talk about dad things and the wealth gap. I disagree with a lot of your proposed solutions, but we need to hear these views now more than ever.      source
Reading @AnandWrites new book about how to make social change. One of the most insightful and provocative books about what’s going on in America that I’ve read in years.      source
Great book from @AnandWrites that will help anyone understand the forces destined to shape our future. Everyone should read      source
We keep looking for these win-win solutions but sometimes we have to lose a little bit so that everybody wins. And that’s not a good message for capitalists because that’s not how we like to roll.      source
@k8bischHRLaw @mfaulkner43 @AnandWrites Looking forward to seeing you! Some lessons are similar, but with new examples or twists... and definitely new experiences and learning to share. Life and business are a journey for us all! Will be diving deep in the exec session as well. PS - great book!      source
