Product description


"Heffernan systematically deconstructs the social myths associated with hypercompetitiveness while providing a formidable case about how counterproductive, and even perverse, it can be...[She] considers the effects of hypercompetitiveness in the realms of family, education, sports, scientific research, and business and corporate leadership....The step-by-step accumulation of argument and evidence is overwhelming in its thoroughness and attention to detail."--Kirkus, STARRED review

"In this bold sociology of organizations, Heffernan sets her sights on an issue that cuts across industries, nations, and individuals: Why is our obsession with winning not only failing to deliver the benefits we expect, but leaving us ill equipped to solve the problems competition creates?..."A Bigger Prize" is an important call to build more collaborative, trustworthy and enduring institutions." --New York Times Book Review

Book Description

Leading business strategist and former CEO Margaret Heffernan draws lessons from long-successful companies to dispel the myth that competition has to be a zero-sum game, and shows corporations, institutions, and individuals that foster collaboration and a healthy interdependency are more likely to become and remain significant leaders in their field.
