Ian Robertson will talk about his new book The Winner Effect, followed by a book signing afterward (we'll have copies for sale in our shop and on the night).

The Winner Effect investigates what makes a winner, why some succeed in life and business, whereas others fail, and why few individuals become supremely powerful, while many remain powerless. Through scientific and psychological analysis, Ian Robertson shows how success affects the inner workings of the brain and explores the implications for this on individuals – in business, on the public stage and in family life.
