Publisher's Summary

The Pareto Principle, or the 80/20 Rule, is the product of the mind of Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923). In a nutshell, it asserts that, in most situations, 80% of outcomes are the product or outcome of 20% of efforts. In this audiobook, you will hear how America's new political and social landscape is impacting this principle and how this alteration may affect your life, and the life of others.
