"No Fear of Failure offers riveting insight on leaders who lead by example, who recognize the importance of trust, and who understand that leadership is about earning the right to have others put their trust in you and then live up to that responsibility every day. It's a powerful book that provides insightful inspiration to any leader." —Tim Flynn, global chairman, KPMG

As the profiled leaders attest, having 'no fear of failure' allows leaders to move forward knowing that they will not always win, with the understanding that the real victory is in the lessons learned from all experiences, positive and negative."—Harry M.
