ABOUT THE BOOK

Power and Influence
The Rules Have Changed
by Robert L. Dilenschneider

Your future is at risk. All the old rules of power and influence have changed. To succeed you need to understand and embrace the new rules. Technology and the era of globalization have revolutionized the ways to build, keep, and assure success. To cope with these changes, adapt, and accomplish your goals, you not only must gain power, but apply it with wisdom.

In Power and Influence: The Rules Have Changed, master power broker and communications maestro Robert Dilenschneider arms you with the intellectual, technical, and moral weapons - the power tools that you need to get ahead and stay ahead in this increasingly competitive world. He reveals how by acquiring the power and influence you seek and wielding it in a techno-savvy, ethical manner, you can not only advance your personal interests, but also shape a more prosperous future for society at large.
