Berkeley Arts and Letters says…

What are the differences between a winning and losing performance? Why are we able to rise to the challenge one day, but wilt from it the next? Can we in fact become better competitors? In Top Dog Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman tackle a subject we all face every day—in the office, in school, on the playing field, at home—revealing how to tip the odds of success in your favor. By looking at competition through a multidisciplinary lens that integrates wisdom with politics, finance, genetics, neuroscience, military psychology, sports, gender studies, economics, education, and more, they reveal the hidden factors that fuel our determination, passion, and drive to compete and explore how we can harness the forces of competition to succeed.
