Book Review: Chasing Failure by Ryan Leak

Posted: January 17, 2022 in Uncategorized

Ryan Leak is a really interesting guy. He has done everything from securing a tryout with an NBA team, to planning a surprise wedding for him and his wife. He is a motivational speaker who tries to help people overcome their fear of failure among other things. I bought this book in hopes of using it for research on my doctoral dissertation. It didn’t really fit my topic. Instead it dealt with stuff that has been broken in me for a very long time. This is one of the most helpful books I have ever read. I also learned all kinds of ways to get myself organized toward reaching my goals. It challenged me to take some risks and dare to fail on. my way to success. I would recommend this book to literally anyone, but especially anyone who has a dream they must see become reality. It’s a quick read, but it is full of really useful information. It was extremely hard to put down. Leak’s stories are compelling and humorous, while at the same time the advice is practical and highly useful. I loved that at the end of each chapter, he sums the information up in a single sentence that really leads to application. This book is fantastic. I only wish I could give this more than five stars. I loved this book and I think you will too.
