    Few things in life are more satisfying than beating a rival. We love to win and hate to lose, whether it's on the playing field or at the ballot box, in the office or in the classroom. In this bold new look at human behavior, award-winning journalist and Olympian Matthew Syed explores the truth about our competitive nature: why we win, why we don't, and how we really play the game of life.

    Story

    I enjoyed the book and the concepts that were presented. I definitely agree with the basic concept that "practice makes perfect" but I do believe there are individuals that are born with talent. Maybe with some individuals this comes out in more interest in a particular activity or maybe it requires less talent. Either way I think the importance of practice, whether you are born with talent or not, is well emphasized.

    A leading dog-blogger offers a tour of military working dogs' extraordinary training, heroic accomplishments, and the lasting impacts they have on those who work with them. Maria Goodavage here tells heartwarming stories of modern soldier dogs and the amazing bonds that develop between them and their handlers. Beyond tales of training, operations, retirement, and adoption into the families of fallen soldiers, Goodavage talks to leading dog-cognition experts about why dogs like nothing more than to be on a mission with a handler they trust.

    Shea says: "Detailed and heart wrenching at times."

    I really enjoyed the store of this book. It is great to hear about these unsung heroes that we don't ever hear about.
