Bright Triumphs from Dark Hours
The dark hours: They occur when we find things spiraling out of control, when we feel most vulnerable and incapable of finding a solution. In a world often turned dark and cold, more and more people seem to be trapped in nightmarish circumstances. Americans, the world’s optimists, when faced with an intractable situation, are taught to believe that through hardwork and will power they can “beat the odds.” Yet, according to David Heenan, keeping one’s nose to the grindstone may actually make things worse. Bright Triumphs From Dark Hours: Turning Adversity into Success examines the lives of ten extraordinary people who overcame great adversity in their personal or professional lives by applying winning strategies that guided them out of the darkness of near-defeat and into the light of success.

“David Heenan’s fascinating stories of overcoming adversity make Bright Triumphs both a timely and inspiring read.” —Spencer Johnson, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Who Moved My Cheese? and Peaks and Valleys
