How do winning and losing streaks begin and end? That's the question of Kanter's examination of successful and unsuccessful entrants in the sports and business worlds. The big shortcoming of the presentation in the audio format is that rather than being spread out over the entire book, the practical advice is concentrated on the last cassette or CD, coming after repeated (and pessimistic) emphasis on the advantages gained by winners and the difficulties faced by losers. Perhaps listeners should play the last cassette or CD first, so they have Kanter's advice to consider as they listen to case studies such as the Philadelphia Eagles' comeback or the (now broken) curse of the Boston Red Sox.
