Maxwell says that if you are like him, you were never prepared to deal with failure. Coming out of school, he feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But he's learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.
Listen to everything by John C. Maxwell.

This book provides the listener with the tools to bounce back from all of the setbacks in life. Each setback can be devastating and demoralizing, however, having the proper tools can make the process easier. Listen with open ears and an open mind.
As always, Maxwell does a great job at clearly covering a topic in an organized and easy to follow way. This is a great book for anyone who is in the trap of negative self-talk and can't quite seem to take themselves to the next level. It's also a great book for anyone who simply wants to give themselves a good re-charge of their optimism.
Maxwell gives 15 great ways to make failure become a stepping stone to success through viewing it differently. If you have recently suffered a failure and can't get out of the dumps, buy this and listen to it!
I love John Maxwell and have enjoyed a couple of other audiobooks (and physical books) of his. Sadly, I cannot recommend this one. It's just too short, too shallow, and one has to think that the full version of the book would have a lot more meat on the bone.
I did not see that it was abridged before I clicked to buy it, and listened through it because of its brevity and in the hope there would be more – but there wasn't.
I hope Maxwell/Nelson will come out with more full-length audiobooks like the outstanding Intentional Living.
I might READ another book by Maxwell, but I would not listen to another book by Maxwell.
I downloaded this audiobook after reading about 2/3 of the digital written version. It does not have whisper sync, so I was trying to follow along in the book to get my bookmarks to correspond. I discovered the audio version omits portions of the book. I'm not talking about changing a word here or there. Some omissions were as short as a sentence, but some were as large as a paragraph or half page. I was most disappointed by the omission of various short stories that elaborate on the concepts covered in a chapter.
Other than omitting large portions of the book, yes.
The book itself was enlightening. The audio version make me disappointed and almost angry.
Don't bother with the audiobook. Get the written version instead.
Another quality book from John Maxwell. While I have read several of the stories that Mr. Maxwell used to back up his assertions it was still an enjoyable book...
This book helped me in so many ways. It opened my eyes to things I could never quite put my finger on. I will be recommending it to my team, and I an also going to follow along in the paper copy when I listen again.
