Tom Whipple's HOW TO WIN GAMES AND BEAT PEOPLE to HarperCollins US

US & Canadian rights to HOW TO WIN GAMES AND BEAT PEOPLE by Tom Whipple have been acquired by HarperCollins imprint Dey Street Books.

Whipple's book is a humorous look at how to crush your family and friends in an array of classic games, via advice from an absurdly overqualified array of experts, including a mathematician's theory on how to approach Connect 4; a champion racecar driver's advice on how to take corners in slot car racing; a mime's trade secrets at winning charades; and a game theorist's recommendations on the right Monopoly properties to buy in order to bankrupt your competitors. Dey Street Books will publish in Fall 2015.
