David Niven, Author HarperOne $11.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-06-251771-5
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. (Apr.)
