Po Bronson teams up once again with his NYT bestselling NurtureShock co-author Ashley Merryman to present a groundbreaking new look at the science of competition. Top Dog – The Science of Winning and Losing tackles a subject we all face every day, whether at work, at school, at home, or on the playing field. Top Dog upends much of the conventional wisdom, explaining the scientiific forces at play that fuel our desire to compete, and with this understanding, reveals how to tip the odds in your favor!

What Should I Do With My Life, Bronson has authored five books on his own, and his writing has appeared in publications such as Time and The Washington Post. His highly regarded collaborations with Merryman range from novels to periodicals, and they have received numerous national awards for their work together.
