Overview

An inspirational allegory of a man and his guardian angel that teaches twenty positive principles of faith and action - ten on courage and ten on perseverance. These are practical, emotional, and spiritual skills that help us to overcome fear and inspire us to fulfill our greatest personal and professional dreams. Fear is the most toxic of emotions - and no one knows this better than Paul Peterson, who is losing the fight to sustain the school he has built for troubled youngsters and sees no way out but to end it all. "It's a beautiful evening for flying, isn't it?" With these words Paul is pulled back from the edge of a windswept cliff by Rafe, who takes him on a backward voyage through time and on a profound journey of self-transformation. In this extraordinary book, Rafe shows Paul how new perspectives and attitudes can create a radically different picture of reality, and how he can find solutions to his seemingly intractable problems. Brave, wise, and wonderful, Never Fear, Never Quit teaches that miracles are worth working for, that we each have the power to create the person we were meant to be - and to give that gift of knowledge to others.

In an allegory about faith and overcoming fear, Paul Peterson, despondent over the pending loss of the school he founded for troubled youths, is saved from harming himself by his guardian angel, who appears in the guise of a fisherman named Rafe. In Never Fear, Never Quit: A Story of Courage and Perseverance by Joe Tye (Staying on Top When the World's Upside Down) their spiritual journey is chronicled in chapters such as "Accept Adversity and It Becomes a Teacher," and "Fear Is a Reaction, Courage Is a Decision."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yet another business primer masquerading as a novel, this time from an inspirational guru with an MBA.
Kirkus Reviews
Self-empowerment fantasy by a counselor for those devastated by business losses or losing a job. Tye has several books and videos on career recovery, self-transformation, and ultimate success.

Paul Peterson, a counselor for kids on the skids, runs a recovery school that has 200 enrollees. But through poor business management, Paul is about to lose the school and his mortgaged home. It's Foreclosure Day. Paul goes to the bank for a meeting, blows his stack on account of his fears, stomps outdoors to find a $75 parking ticket on his Chevy (he's in a wheelchair zone), races off to a nearby canyon cliff and jumps off. It's a wonderful life, though, because his guardian angel, Rafe, saves him and begins running time backward so that Paul sees himself backing away from the canyon, going backwards into the bank and going through the whole morning all over again, in reverse motion, while Rafe points out a few flaws in Paul's way of handling his anxieties. Then he's allowed to go through the morning once more. Many of his obstacles turn out to be self-created by fear and misunderstanding of others. This time, people who might have helped him but were dismissed out of hand by Paul come through for him and the school is saved. By facing brutal facts, Paul discovers how he has undersold both himself and life. Along the way, Rafe proffers a number of aphorisms meant to inspire folks who may be in the money dumps: "Caring is the root of courage"; "Fear is a prison from which action wins freedom"; "With faith fear becomes an ally." And so on.

Sinking people will grasp any straw, and this small, lightly fictionalized handbook of survival may well lend courage to faint hearts.
