Persistence and Power – Jeffrey Pfeffer

Jeffrey Pfeffer, author of the enlightening Power: Why Some People Have It – and Others Don’t offers lessons from the success of author Tim Ferris (whose 4-Hour Body is a current best-seller). 

In this post on the HBR blog, Pfeffer notes that Ferris’s first book was rejected 25 times before being accepted for publication.  Persistence, determination and self-discipline makes the difference.
