Contents:
How we win from losing (and occasionally lose from winning) -- A masters in humility: how Greg Norman won fans by falling on his face -- Pride and perspective: what Michael Dukakis gained when he didn't gain the White House -- The "why bother?" point: Susan Lucci's real-life soap opera -- What goes up -- can come back up again: Fay Vincent and the resilience of the mind -- The power of rewriting: how Dan Jansen revised his own script -- "Good things come out of chaos": a soccer player's powerful rebirth -- "My startup failed. Fuck": the surprising profits in bankruptcy -- The power of stick-to-itiveness: the greatest team that never won a game -- So what have we learned? Lessons from the last guy cut.
Summary, etc.: As a father of two competitive boys, Weinman struggled to convince them that failing can actually be a critical part of success. He sought out the perspectives of people who have turned significant setbacks into meaningful comebacks to illustrate how we can not only overcome defeat but grow stronger from the experience. He asks readers to redefine what constitutes success and failure, and offers an essential blueprint for harnessing the power of setbacks to achieve what we want in life.
