Publisher's Summary

Terry Giles has lived a classic-American success story. By 30, he had built one of the largest criminal defense firms in Southern California and had generated tens of millions in revenue working with high-profile clients. By 34, he had left the legal profession and had achieved even greater success as an entrepreneur, seemingly overnight. But as Giles observes in The Fifteen Percent, no one goes through life without facing serious obstacles. Speaking about his own hard-won experience from his difficult upbringing to his place in some of America’s loftiest boardrooms, Giles offers listeners the answer to the question that took him years to answer: Why do some people overcome hardships better than others? 

Using examples from his career and life - defending child sex-abuse victims, his involvement in Monica Lewinsky’s trial, and managing Dr. Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign - he illustrates these ideas in action. In each chapter, you’ll learn valuable skills including fearlessness, embracing underdog status, visualizing the future, positive thinking, all of which prove that you do not have to be a victim of bad circumstances to adopt the superpowers of “the fifteen percent.” 

Entertaining, inspiring, and full of useful insights you’ll turn to again and again, The Fifteen Percent will help you overcome whatever’s holding you back so that you can achieve lasting success in your career and your life.

Ok Story- Misleading Title

This guy has an interesting enough life that he could’ve just called this what it is- an autobiography. The whole 15% thing is barely discussed and rightfully so because it’s pretty flimsy.
