Summary
"Anshel provides a refreshing new perspective on how we can embrace failure as part of the process of achieving and succeeding at the highest level. Using sports psychology, Anshel addresses such issues as how to properly promote failure in sport and exercise settings, how errors lead to improvement, ways to constructively cope with failure, and how to help athletes fail 'safely.' In the process, Anshel shows that the highest-performing athletes have one characteristic in common: they learned and improved from setbacks ... shares stories of athletes, business professionals, scholars, and inventors who failed repeatedly before attaining their dreams, revealing the Integral role of failure in success."--Page 4 of cover
