Failure is your key to success. So says Hall of Fame quarterback and hugely successful serial entrepreneur Fran Tarkenton. Don't get him wrong--there's no one more competitive or keener on winning than Fran. But in his inspiring and insightful new book, The Power of Failure , Tarkenton illustrates with hard, real-life examples why the most successful entrepreneurs are those with the courage, the resilience, the intelligence, and the competitive spirit to fail often, fail faster, and fail better--to achieve ultimate success. Candid, concise, quotable, and realistic, Fran Tarkenton is the best possible guide to finding success through the power of failure.
