This article presents the author’s premise that success in business requires a high degree of self‐serving behavior and exclusionary methods on the part of a company’s leaders. Using numerous examples, including Tom Watson at IBM, Bill Gates at Microsoft, Andy Grove at Intel, Phil Knight at Nike, and Robert Moses in New York City, he shows how both savory and unsavory human behaviors help to accomplish objectives and eventually find their way into commercial settings. Thus, aggressive and manipulative business dealings are a direct result of basic human nature.
