A whipsaw experience of business failure, followed by extraordinary success

Surviving Failure (and a few Successes) is a bracingly honest book about the struggles of failure and of wild success. It is also a story of hard-won hope and endurance. Here, too, for the first time is the inside story of the off-the-charts publishing sensation, Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook. Good acknowledges the searing questions he faced in the dark times and in the moments of out-of-control success. Who can I trust—and who will trust me? When the false gossip is overwhelming, do I ignore it, or do my best to counter it? The author offers transferable survival tips, weaving in advice from well-known figures who experienced failure yet went on to live productively and positively.


"A must-read for all who have known both success and failure." —S. Dale High, long-time Chair of High Industries and High Real Estate, LCC and Director of the S. Dale High Leadership Center

"There is much learning and wisdom to take away from this honest and fascinating narrative by an experienced writer/entrepreneur." —James M. Harder, Ph.D. (Economics), President, Bluffton University
