Po Bronson

Author, Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing

Doug Sovern, KCBS Radio Correspondent - Moderator

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, Bronson and co-author Ashley Merryman use cutting-edge science to tease out the hidden factors at the core of great triumphs ­– and tragic failures. Integrating wisdom from politics, finance, genetics, neuroscience, psychology, military training, sports, economics, education and more, Bronson offers counterintuitive, game-changing insights into the nature of competition.
