Can we all become more competitive? Journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman argue yes. In their new book, "Top Dog," they use science to analyze the drive to win in each of us, including how to tip the scales in your favor.

Po Bronson is a journalist and author who has written for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Ashley Merryman is a journalist and author who has written for the Washington Post and the National Catholic Reporter. They spoke at Seattle’s Town Hall on March 5, 2013.
