From the Back Cover:

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE SO DOWN YOU¿D NEVER PICK YOURSELF UP AGAIN. . .

Whether you're seeking a dose of inspiration, a winning edge in life, or a soul-shaking nudge in the right direction, the powerful stories in this uniquely intimate volume will help you see setbacks as opportunities to turn lemons into lemonade. When Life Gives You Lemons can enable you to build resilience and forge your way to success in whatever endeavor you pursue. Whether you measure success in points and seconds, like Olympic gold medal-winning speed skater Dan Jansen; in profits and shares, like millionaire CEO Chris Gardner; in TV ratings, like talk-show host Sally Jessy Raphael; or in chocolate chips, like entrepreneur Wally Amos, you will meet the famous and not-so-famous who hit rock bottom, and then, in their own eminently noteworthy ways, managed to bounce back to the top.

Discover just how these outstanding individuals turned hardship into happiness¿¿and how you can benefit from the "Tips for Tough Times" and "Key Lessons" that accompany their remarkable accounts, such as:

*View failure as the freedom to take chances *Accept that paying dues is part of the deal *Pursue your goals with love, and you will be rewarded *Don't let past failures become baggage *Don't ask, Can I?¿¿Ask, How can I?

¿and many more invaluable pearls of hard-earned wisdom. As these profoundly human stories illustrate, it is not failure itself but how we respond to failure that defines our character and shapes our lives.
