    Yeah, it's common for authors to downplay anything that doesn't support their main thesis in interviews. I will say that the author seems to have been surprised by how damaging competition can be, so maybe she was trying to get that across, that things are not necessarily how one would expect. I do think that people have a bit of a simplistic view of competition in general and that negative consequences tend to be downplayed in our culture, so I found the article refreshing in that regard.
