Gold Medal Winner, Success and Motivation, 2011 Axiom Business Book Awards Insight from leaders who experienced major setbacks and redefined success In tough economic times, when careers are derailed and leaders are forced to rewrite their professional plans, this book enlightens and uplifts. Comebacks features an all-star cast of ten leaders who endured setbacks-for some a public fall in the midst of media scrutiny-then reassessed and moved ahead with new purpose.
