He profiles over thirty companies-including Method, JetBlue, and Adobe in the U.S., Brazil's Oi Mobile, China's Baidu, South Africa's Black Like Me cosmetics-that showcase how smart, nimble compa nies can outmaneuver larger competitors and shift the odds in their favor.
Denny shares fresh case studies and interviews, peppering each chapter with insights shared by professional athletes, screenwriters, chefs, hostage negotiators, and others. He discusses strategies such as:

· Fight unfairly. Learn how underdog brands can turn the tables and become the bully
