Peoplonomics is an honest piece of work that tries to bring forward the ways in which people and organisations play a critical role in each other's success. In a very crystalline way, the book defines that only 4 types of people exist in any place of work; one of which ought to be you.
The kind of people you associate with is the reason you either struggle or succeed. They have a strong co-relation to the position that you are currently occupying and indicate where it shall take you in your career's future. Similarly, it also tells the organisation how the people who form the work environment influences its growth trajectory.
The book in a thought-provoking manner tries to convey that no matter who among the 4 types you are, values and principles will always remain an integral part of progress and prosperity: both for the individual and the organisation.
