Publisher's Summary

NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton is a friend of failure. In the 1970s, he brought the Minnesota Vikings to the Superbowl three times - and three times his team was crushed. The first two companies he founded both quickly folded. But by learning how to deal with defeat, Tarkenton discovered the key to success. Now 74 years old and CEO of Tarkenton Companies, Fran Tarkenton shares the most valuable lesson he learned as an athlete and entrepreneur - that failure, devastating as it is, can be an incredible gift.

    "Awesome!!!!"

    This is a great book of about success through failure. It's all about ethical learning and overcoming. I followed the Vikings and Fran Tarkington as a boy and will continue to do so as an adult.

    "This book stinks"
    Would you try another book from Fran Tarkenton and/or Dan Woren and Fran Tarkenton ?

    If you want to hear a bunch of crap about how great Fran is, this is a book for you. Just not that good at all.
