An inspiring guide to playing your personal best in the sport of life

As an orthopedic surgeon, a finish-line physician, and a USA team doctor at the World Cup and the Olympics, Dr. Bert Mandelbaum has witnessed the trials and triumphs of elite athletes from a vantage point few of us get. And over his twenty-plus years of experience, he's identified a common character trait that every elite athlete relies upon for success: it's what he calls the "victorious spirit."

In The Win Within , Mandelbaum reveals that any of us--no matter our age or physical condition--can capture that same spirit in our own lives. This inner drive to win resides in all of us, he argues, hardwired into our DNA by ancestry dating back millions of years. You'll learn how to view life the way a top-performing athlete does: relentlessly, tenaciously, positively, and focusing less on the finish line of the marathon and more on the 26.2 miles that precede it.

With narrative support ranging from the lessons of our early ancestors to Mandelbaum's stories of our modern-day gladiators (both household name and lesser known), The Win Within will give you a greater understanding of how and why we're all hardwired to win--and you'll come away with no shortage of tactics and motivation to capture your own victorious spirit.
