In this inspiring guide, prolific business author Maxwell (The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth) focuses on the universal problem of setbacks and losses, both personal and professional. He concedes that losses often leave us mentally defeated and poised for even greater problems. To combat these reactions, Maxwell draws a roadmap comprised of 11 qualities, ranging from humility, reality, and responsibility to adversity, change, maturity, and beyond. He dedicates a chapter to each quality, addressing core intellectual and emotional attributes, including powerful and memorable stories that effectively illustrate his points. Maxwell's success comes not just from the astuteness of his ideas, but also from his understanding of how readers process and ingest information. As always, Maxwell has his finger on the pulse of how we tick, how we process our failures and losses, and how we can get over them, move on, and succeed. (Oct.)
