Event Details

Join us at the Pyramid Club on November 9th where Steve Young, author of the book, "Great Failures of the Extremely Successful" will join us for a fabulous conversation!   


About the book:

Babe Ruth spent his childhood years in an orphanage and, as a baseball player, struck out 1,330 times...on his way to the Hall of Fame. Elvis Presley was banished from the Grand Ole Opry after one performance and told: "You ain't goin' nowhere, son." Oprah Winfrey was fired from her television reporter's job and advised: "You're not fit for TV." Author/interviewer Steve Young relates how hardships, roadblocks, rejections and even physicial infirmities cannot stop people determined to succeed!

This collection of motivational stories and anecdotes of famous and everyday "failures" shows that success rests on changing "I can't" into "I will." From the worlds of business, science, entertainment, sports, education, politics and the arts come inspirational, often humorous but always helpful, reflections from those who refused to let defeat stop them on their road to victory. Personal stories by: Erin Brockovich; John Wooden; Jane Goodall; Johnny Unitas; Sam Donaldson; Teddy Pendergrass; Ann Richards; Bill Walton; Steve Allen; Billy Idol; Dr. Audrey Manley; Jimmy Breslin; and many more.

About our guest author:

Steve Young is a multi-talented writer and motivational speaker. In addition to creating material for prime-time network television (so you know he’s familiar with failure), his stories and articles have been published in magazines and national newspapers. He is winner of the 2000 Prism Award and has been nominated for the Humanitas Prize, both of which recognize his ability to blend entertainment with important social issues. 


The author will be available immediately following the program to sell and sign books.

Ticket price includes admission to this limited seating event and light food.  Registration is limited, so be sure to save your seat today!  Registered participants will receive a note with details about the venue and discounted parking.
