The Elite Charade of Changing the World
Anand Giridharadas - 2018-08-28
Goodreads Rating
This investigative book delves into how the world's elite work, manipulate, and rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor while preserving their power and position atop society. The author takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age where the rich fight for equality and justice any way they can, except for ways that threaten the social order. An essential read for understanding the egregious abuses of power that dominate today's news and a call to action for elites and citizens alike to build a more egalitarian society through democratic means.

This popular business book teaches readers how to take responsibility for their actions and stop blaming others when things go wrong. Drawing inspiration from The Wizard of Oz, the authors argue that most people have the tools they need to succeed but fail to look within themselves for the true cause of unsatisfactory results. By embracing the "Oz Principle," readers can become better leaders and achieve greater success in their careers. The latest edition includes new anecdotes and stories to keep the content fresh and relevant.
