COMPETITION books & movies

What books and movies would you recommend to someone strong (or weak) in Competition?

Marshall Rosenberg's "Nonviolent Communication" is a good read for people with strong but "unpolished" Command, Competition, Analytical and Belief talents. I quote from the back cover: "Most of us have been educated from birth to compete, judge, demand and diagnose - to think and communicate in terms of what is "right" and "wrong" with people. At best, communicating and thinking this way can create misunderstanding and frustration. And still worse, it can lead to anger, depression, and even emotional or physical violence."

In this book, you will learn how to do better than that: "Far more than a communication technique, you'll learn to transform the thinking, language, and moralistic judgments that keep you from the enriching relationships that you dream of."
