Mozart. Federer. Piscasso. Beckham. For centuries, artists and atheletes have exemplified the narrative of success, creating enduring legacies of exceptional prowess, insight or artistic talent. In Bounce, Matthew Syed expands students’ understanding of the art of competition--in business, sports, school, and the arts--to show that developing a healthy sense of competition can lead to success.

Drawing illuminating examples from the worlds of art and sport, Bounce’s lessons transcend disciplines and will appeal to students of all curricular and extracurricular interests. Syed backs his claims with the latest in findings in cognitive neuroscience, making Bounce both academically and broadly appealing.

A two-time Olympian and a graduate of Oxford University, Matthew Syed is a columnist forThe Times(London), a commentator for the BBC, and a recipient of the British Press Award for Sports Journalist of the Year, and was named British Sports Feature Writer of the Year by the Sports Journalists'' Association.
