Summary Robert Jackall presents an eye-opening account of how corporate managers think the world works, and how big organizations shape moral consciousness. He takes the reader inside the intricate world of the corporation where hard work does not necessarily lead to success, but sharp talk, self-promotion, powerful patrons, and sheer luck might. This brilliant, sometimes unsettling, often wildly funny study presents compelling real life stories of the men and women charged with running the businesses of America.
