Praise for Bounce!

"Bounce ! will transform fears into confidence and define your own brand of success. Brilliant!"
—DR. JOE VITALE, author of The Attractor Factor

"Moltz shows us that when we recognize failure as simply part of any business experience and approach it with humility and endurance, we can all have the true confidence we need for future success."
—MICKEY KONSON, Vice President, Small Business Solutions, Capital One

"Bounce! is about how to build long-term business confidence through success and failure. Moltz captures the essence of resiliency by helping businesspeople learn from all of the business outcomes they experience over their career."
—ALAN A. BROWN, Executive Vice President, Nuveen Investments

"Thank you, Barry Moltz, for getting past the 'you can turn it around' cheerleading and the 'failure is your teacher' balms that are supposed to somehow ease our pain when we hit bottom in spite of our best efforts. Thank you for taking a hard, honest, and often humorous look at failure for what it really is, and most of all for providing some real practical advice for getting through it."
—SCOTT ALLEN, About.com, A New York Times Company

"Read this book—twice. Then give it away. Because you will forever know how to bounce with any challenge, crisis, or failure. In fact, this book really is about your next great success."
—MICHAEL PORT, author of Book Yourself Solid

"Can you Bounce? This is the book about the inevitable failures we all will experience and how we can best survive them. Moltz offers no false hope . . . just real tools for developing the resilience needed for sustained success."
—STEVEN S. LITTLE, author of the bestseller The 7 Irrefutable Rules of Small Business Growth

"Afraid of failure? Just Bounce!"
—DANIEL H. PINK, author of A Whole New Mind

    A reviewer

    You don't have to be crazy to believe in the Barry Moltz 'bounce' theory. You have to be crazy not to read Bounce. In his first book I read how I must be crazy to start my own business and I am. I have started seven. Four failures, one almost, and two successes, but nobody is counting but me. In Bounce he gives the answers to how to deal with the craziness of today's fast paced business environment full of highs, lows and unpredictable results. You have to bounce. In a world where business is 24/7, and the line between business and life are totally blurred, Barry's Bounce is an quick, fun, read with great insight and advice on surviving and succeeding in today's crazy business world.
