Full Description

How the very best get to--and stay at--the top

From the arenas of professional sports to the boardrooms of major businesses, a thin slice of peak performers dominates every field. What is their secret to success? Few people know what drives these world-leaders like sports agent Molly Fletcher. Not only has Fletcher herself risen to the top of a tough, male-dominated field--CNN dubbed her "the female Jerry Maguire"--but she has also represented hundreds of successful athletes, coaches, and broadcasters in baseball, golf, basketball, and football. Her experience reveals exactly what it takes to play like "the best."

  • Breaks success into accessible strategies like smart negotiation, likability, and personal brand-building
  • Features interviews with such notables as Home Depot cofounder and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, future Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz, and football legend Roger Staubach
  • Connects high performance to values by showing how the best give back

No matter what you do or what game you play, Fletcher's authoritative and inspirational look at the top 1 percent will help you win.
