Win at Losing – Book Review

Win at Losing – Book Review

I received a copy of Win at Losing” ($26.00 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.”


Everyone has a story!  A winning story or a losing story….or both!  In award-winning sports journalist, Sam Weinman’s book, Win at Losing – How Our Biggest Setbacks Can Lead to Our Greatest Gains, he shares winning/losing stories from professional athletes, business executives, politicians and Hollywood stars and how they hit rock bottom and lost…to win.  These professionals realized that losing was actually a stepping stone to where they needed to be now.

Weinman is trying to instill in his book, to his own boys and others, that losing is good!  It’s healthy!  It’s needed!  In Win at Losing, Wienman really goes into lengthy detail with some professional athletes regarding the difficulties of losing.  (So watch out for a TON of sports background from these athletes that may be a bit much for some people who aren’t sporty and all.  And with Weinman being Digital Editor at GolfDigest…do you blame him when it’s his forte?  Surely not!)  But all in all, this book shares some really good stories that we all can learn from our stumbling careers to get to the top of where we are supposed to be.  Life happens along with disappointment and it’s meant to be.

Win at Losing can be purchased at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
