Overview


Just graduated with no prospects whatsoever? Been fired from your job? Rejected from a snazzy college? Looking for that next big break but coming up empty handed? Fear not, you’re in excellent company . . . 
 
• Albert Einstein failed the entrance exams to the Swiss Polytechnic Institute.

• J. K. Rowling lived on welfare in an apartment infested with mice.

• Muhammad Ali graduated 376th from a high school class of 391 students.

• Julia Roberts auditioned for All My Children but didn’t get the part.

• Dick Cheney flunked out of Yale University—twice.

• And hundreds more!
 
Each page of Famous Failures features a headline revealing the major failure of a person who later became phenomenally successful, and the smaller type at the bottom of each page explains that person's remarkable achievements. It all goes to show that no one has made the climb to the top without encountering an avalanche along the way. Reading just a few pages of this book makes you want to go back out there and try, try again.
