This was such an enlightening little book. It goes beyond embracing fear, embracing rejection, and flows straight into embracing life: What a concept! You'll be tickled pink at how creative Jia Jiang gets in TRYING to find things to fail at. There's a positive joy in it.
The key thing is that it takes practice to be resilient, practice to find joy and confidence despite the outcome. I've read/listened to many, many (oh GOD: MANY!) self-development books on fear, and this is the only one that has humor in it. Don't get me wrong, he started off as somebody absolutely dedicated to not trying, to living his life for other people, but he blossomed in a truly magnificent way.
During each failure exercise, he analyzed and learned something new, and we can too. Personally, I have six rejection slips from agents, and the book got me thinking: What? Why so few?!? I have GOT to get out there and practice what this little book teaches.
It's a wonderful text, narrated well, and it cracked me up. Inspiring...!

Easy and quick read. Kept me engaged and created excitement. Had me view rejection in a different light. Love the Cialdini reference :)
