Newman found that fast-food chains were the perfect petri dishes for covert research: High-pressure, high-volume business with high-employee turnover. The pecking order was also crystal clear, from fry cook all the way up to story manager." "Of the seven restaurants where Newman worked, some were high-morale, high-productivity machines. Others were miserable, misplaced circles of hell. Yet one common trait stuck out from them all: Each restaurant's respective manager determined the climate of the work environment."--Jacket." ;
