Praise

“Instructive reading for anyone who wonders how to cope with defeat — at work, at sports, at life . . . Reading the stories from the other side of famous defeats, as well as the psychological benefits of those defeats, is incredibly useful.” —Chicago Tribune

The clear, conversational, and self-aware writing creates an enjoyable read with a worthy takeaway.” —Booklist

“An outstanding book! In riveting chapters, Weinman portrays spectacular failures that helped people grow instead of crushing them. You will be inspired.” —Carol S. Dweck, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Mindset

“We always hear and read a great deal about winning and the joy of success. Win at Losing is all about the other side of winning and the truth that no one wins without losing many times. Learning from losing is a big part of success.  This is a wonderful read.” —Bob Rotella, PhD, bestselling author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect

“Because we live in a country where our most admired citizens are labeled ‘winners,’ we often fail to appreciate the tremendous value of defeat. Well, thank goodness for Sam Weinman, whose ode to dropping the ball, missing the shot, failing to rise to the occasion is a beautiful—and important—reminder that second place often trumps first. A blissful read.” —Jeff Pearlman, bestselling author of The Bad Guys Won

“Readers (especially sports fans) will enjoy this thought-provoking analysis of beneficial losses.” Publishers Weekly

“Sam Weinman took on a fascinating challenge when he decided to look into how people deal with loss—not just in sports, but in many walks of life. His reporting is thorough and insightful, allowing the reader a view of how those who are the best at what they do, deal—and grow from—defeat.” —John Feinstein, bestselling author of A Season on the Brink

“What’s the thread that unites the highest performers in sports, business, and life? They’ve all faced failure and defeat . . . and emerged stronger for the experience. Sam Weinman takes readers on an entertaining journey that shows how getting knocked down is part of all of our lives, and how each of us can grow and learn from the experience.” —Mark McClusky, bestselling author of Faster, Higher, Stronger

“Sam Weinman will have to do his own ‘winning from losing’ in some other forum, because his book is terrific. And, although its genesis was in sports, it’s really about how to be a better, happier, and more self-aware person.” —David Owen, staff writer, The New Yorker
