9780140178111: When Smart People Fail: Rebuilding Yourself for Success

“A must for those who need to understand how setbacks can be made into stepping-stones to the top.”—Forbes
 
Lay-offs, cutbacks, company reorganizations, and bankruptcies are bringing millions of people face-to-face with unexpected, often devastating setbacks in their professional lives. If you are among them—or fear you may soon be—help is at hand in this book.
 
Everyone is afraid to fail. But when smart people fail, they convert their loss into renewed success. Drawing on their own experiences and those of hundreds of others, Carole Hyatt and Linda Gottlieb provide the practical, positive, reassuring advice you need for these trying times.
 
It’s not whether we fail, but how we cope with failure that truly matters. With the compassion and confidence of ultimate survivors, Linda Gottlieb and Carole Hyatt have given us the tools to rebound, regain control, and come back better than before.
 
“People will be helped more by reading this book than by anything else I can think of.”—Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

From Publishers Weekly:

Hyatt (The Women's Selling Game) and Gottlieb (Limbo) explore the effects of failure in success-oriented America on such people as George McGovern and Clare Boothe Luce. PW found that "interviewing men and women in various fields, they glean interesting information from those who accepted defeat only temporarily."
