Nobody performs better under pressure. The reality is that pressure only makes you do worse. But there are things you can do to diminish its effects on your performance.

The book draws on research from more than 12,000 people and features the latest studies from neuroscience and from the frontline experiences of Fortune 500 employees and managers.
