About this Item

BRAND NEW Copy w/trace wear to illustrated soft cover. On keeping score in our competitive world. Succinct comments from journalist Sydney J. Harris (1917 - 1986) on winners and losers in every walk of life with illustrations (some in color) of Nicole Hollander. Divided into five "scoreboards", the wit and humor conveys serious messages. Harris points out "When a winner makes a mistake, he says 'I was wrong'; when a looser makes a mistake, he says, 'It wasn't my fault.'", and, "A winner knows what to fight for, and what to compromise on; a looser compromises on what he shouldn't, and fights for what isn't worthwhile fighting about." Fine copy of a self-improvement book one is not likely to give away. Bookseller Inventory # 002343
