Super-accessible, super interesting food for thought, 11 Jun 2012
In the vein of the best New Yorker articles where science and popular culture converge seamlessly, The Winner Effect is full of cutting edge research and entertaining anecdotes. It covers a fascinating subject, revealing truths large and small. It comes as no surprise that power may beget power (and often corrupt) due to chemical changes in the brain and that the golden few may literally radiate success but on a personal level, I found it just as intriguing to learn that wearing red to an interview or a sports match can influence outcome and that leaders (thankfully) grow into their jobs.
