Buy Edge

A three-part plan for domination.

Edge: The Art of Ruthless Competition is a 360 page guide that gives you a three-part process you can use to win in any competitive game:

Play the Game

First, you must break down the game to its fundamental elements in order to see where the most important competitive edges exist. Everything else flows from these basic building blocks.

Play the Player

You play games against other humans, and in order to gain an advantage over them, you must know how to break them down mentally. Once you can do that, you can dull any edges they may have on you.

Play for Blood

Competing is a skill, and you must understand the difference between having fun and playing for blood. If you can do that, you can find edges that less attentive competitors often ignore.
