This is not another book about coming back from failure, writes Barry Moltz in his empowering new book Bounce!: Failure, Resiliency, and Confidence to Achieve Your Next Great Success. Instead, the book is about developing the confidence and resiliency to prepare for both the successes and the failures, in your business and in life.
Barry Moltz discusses his failures in business openly and honestly. He describes how the conventional wisdom of learning from failure is not the best approach to understanding business setbacks. For the author, the standard linear models of business success and failure teach the wrong lessons. Instead of thinking in straight lines, success and failure should be thought of as cycles. No one’s career or life experience travels in a straight line, as outcomes may be perceived in different ways, depending upon different ideas of what constitutes success.
