9780061157936: 100 Simple Secrets of Successful People, The: What Scientists Have Learned and How You Can Use It

What are the keys to success? Scientists have studied the traits, beliefs, and practices of successful people in all walks of life. But the answers they find wind up in stuffy academic journals aimed at other scientists.

The 100 Simple Secrets of Successful People takes the best and most important research results from over a thousand studies and spells out the key findings in ways we can all understand. Each entry contains advice based on those findings, a real life example of what to do or not to do, and a telling statistic based on scientific research.

From Publishers Weekly:

From "resist the urge to be average" to "speak slowly," psychologist and social scientist David Niven offers concise workplace and lifestyle advice in The 100 Simple Secrets of Successful People: What Scientists Have Learned and How You Can Use It. Niven's "secrets" are based on research by psychologists and sociologists, which he cites in each entry. One study, for instance, observed that six in 10 managers lost friends who weren't promoted as quickly as they were, leading Niven to reassure readers that co-workers' bitterness is "a sincere but unpleasant form of flattery." Each tip also draws on the real-life experiences of successful business owners and other professionals.
