Publisher's Summary

An engaging, inspiring exploration of the surprising value of setbacks - and how we can use them to succeed.

As an award-winning sports journalist, Sam Weinman has long studied the ripple effects of losing. But as a father of two competitive boys, he struggled to convince them that failing - whether losing a hockey game or bombing a math test - can actually be a critical part of success. So he sought out the perspectives of men and women who have turned significant setbacks into meaningful comebacks - and sometimes even new careers - to illustrate how we can not only overcome defeat, but grow stronger from the experience.

Blending firsthand interviews and advice from professional athletes, business executives, politicians, and Hollywood stars with expert analysis from leading psychologists and coaches, Win at Losing reveals how renowned figures - from Emmy Award-winning actress Susan Lucci to golfer Greg Norman and politician Michael Dukakis - have prevailed and even triumphed in the aftermath of loss, humiliation, and rejection. In showcasing the ways our most difficult moments can be turned into powerful growth opportunities, this lively and moving guide asks listeners 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.

    "I wanted to like this book. . ."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    ...but there were so many boring sports analogies that it soon became apparent the author's world and mine are quite different. The author was NOT speaking to me.

    "I like the ideas but do not like all of the sports analogies."

    I am still listening and hope to feel motivated to complete the book. Right now I am lost in the golf score stories and losing interest.
