A book I can read again and again without getting bored…..


It is after reading this book my life got transformed… It was during 2004 I got this book and finished reading it at one go… 

My Situation: My company was in near disaster when 35 out of 40 of my staff resigned in less than 2 weeks..

That was the first time I came across an attrition and I was almost collapsed… I got convinced that my four year entrepreneur journey has come to an end..

It was after reading this book that I got the confidence to fight back… The book taught me how to approach failure… My entire perception about failure changed and I stared looking for opportunity and lessons from every failure…

The book talks about ways of turning setbacks to success and it is conveyed with 27 real life cases..

I keep reading this book when ever I feel demotivated… Till now I would have read this book more than 50 times and I keep gifting this book to entrepreneur friends…

A small snippet about Failure from the book;
Old Definition:A negative, fatal, and final result indicating: 

  • An inability to perform and a lack of success 
  • A falling short because of ineptness, deficiency, or negligence 
  • A bad, bad thing that should be avoided, mourned, and punished. 

New Definition: A short-term unexpected result that reflects a challenge in progress and that provides: 

  • A stepping-stone to success 
  • An opportunity for learning and development 
  • An opportunity for creative change and innovation.

Finally I’ve to thank the author Charles Manz for giving us such a wonderful book.. Your book had huge impact on me SIR!!!

Thank You Once Again SIR!!!
