Ashley Merryman is the bestselling co-author of Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing.  Ashley and Po Bronson's NurtureShock shined a new light on the development and nurturing strategies of parents and society.  Their book and their findings have been widely publicized and now they're back with their new book on the science of competition.

Ashley shared insight from the book and we explored the pyschology of competition and whether it's healthy, self-defeating, important or even necessary.
