As a high school counselor, I am, indeed, a big fan of Maxwell's writings. I am constantly using Maxwell's wisdom and insight to help students and myself. For those who want change in their lives and are motivated toward true success, it's important to know how to handle failure and spawn success from it. This book does exactly that!

This book has canged my life and the way I see things. I always saw failure as and end but now I know that it is only means to an end. Any young persons who wants to be in control read this book.

This book is pure John Maxwell! Dealing with failure is an inescapable portion of the human existence. The question if not whether or not we will fail...the question is how will we recover - and propsper - from failure. Maxwell examines failure from this perspective. Imagine being given permission to fail! Now imagine being able to put that failure into a healthy perspective and move forward from there! I thought enough of this book to buy two additional copies for my two children in college! I will encourage them to read - and assimilate - the timeless principles in this book.

I read this book as additional reading assignment in one of my HR Management classes at the University of Georgia. I have read a couple other books by Maxwell and this certainly ranks up there with one of his best. So often in college I feel like students think they have to have their whole lives figured out by the time they graduate. This book brought a helpful perspective to the reality that we often have to step out in the midst of uncertainty and take a risk. As a result, our fear is reduced by simply taking action. As we learn to turn our mistakes into platforms to boost success, we gain a clearer picture of our skills, abilities, and passions. This book also helped me get an inside look at real life stories of those who experienced massive failure before they were successful. It seems like they were actually successful not in spite of their failure but because of them! I would say this is a must for business and nonbusiness students alike.

I think that this book is very meaningful for everyone facing difficult challenges in their career. It is very easy to read and has a lot of useful information about turning failure into success. Maxwell provides a detailed list of steps to take in order to fail forward. He gave many real life stories of people who encountered failure but later on found success in their career, such as Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-a. In order to succeed in a career, a person has to be very hard working, goal-oriented, motivated, possess the right attitude in dealing with adversity and be accountable for their own mistakes.

Tackling The Fear Of Failure I as a student have always feared failing a state exam, class test or even a quiz, and I needed to find a solution to alleviate this problem , as it was not only affecting me, but also my family, and fellow peers. Maxwell's advice cured my simple  fear and guided me to the power of positive thinking. We use our mistakes to learn from our past and prepare us for the future. It's one thing to dwell over failure, and it another to take action and conquer the fear of failing. Reading Failing Forward  has provided me with the wisdom to appreciate failure, and all of it's components.

I loved this book. I actually bought it for my husband after seeing this guy on a talk show. I ended up reading it, and it made a big difference in my life. It inspired me to write my own book, which I'm working on with my sister. This book should be given to High School students to prepare them for life.

'A failure is a failure, because he fails to fail.' These are my words, but Maxwell makes you feel good about failing...forward. This book encourages you to keep taking risks, for inevitably, you will one day succeed. All successful people have failed at least a hundred times before they achieved their dreams. Read this book and let it send you soaring to new heights of failing...forward!!!

We have become in someways accustomed to a Internet-speed success culture. Making it means a lot of things to a lot of people. In Maxwell's Failing Forward, 'it's all net...swoosh.' Maxwell seems to hit the ground running with this one. He continues to improve his craft and the timeliness of this is great. Who wants to be a millionaire mentality has cut across the country, and Maxwell provides a lucid editorial focus that keeps his reader moving straight ahead toward achieving and appreciating the meaningful. Good job Max!
