No more Mister Nice Guy!Stu Walker?s long-awaited tenth book is filled with surprises. Using anecdotes from golf, tennis, football, sailing, running, and many other sports, Walker shows how competitors are impelled by their genes to follow an altruistic Code of Competition. Yet they must find the courage to violate this Code to achieve their egoistic purposes. He demonstrates that success in competition comes most importantly from resisting the Code. Competitors must resist the Code that creates ?pressure,? ?pecking orders,? ?blowing it,? resentment, and guilt. And they must resist the Code?s assumptions that outcomes should be based on deservedness and that victory and hubris require atonement.,
