Leadership Press announces the forthcoming release of The Hero's Choice: How Setbacks Can Transform Your Life by Roger K. Allen. The Hero's Choice will be available wherever fine books are sold on February 1, 2009.
It's been said that in life, there are only two things we can count on for certain: death and taxes. But as anyone who has ever lost a job, suffered from a personal challenge, or kept an eye on the stock market of late can tell you, there's likely a third certainty that can be added to that list: setbacks. Setbacks, quite frankly, happen--and they happen to everyone. So what do you do when life throws you a curveball?
The answer comes in the form of a soon-to-be-released book, The Hero's Choice: How Setbacks Can Transform Your Life by Roger K. Allen. Allen, a recognized thought leader in the field of leadership and personal and organizational change, crafted The Hero's Choice as a fable - and not a technical, or how-to book - as a means of giving those who face setbacks a relatable, everyday hero in the book's perfectly imperfect protagonist.
The Hero's Choice (Leadership Press, Hardcover, $16.95, ISBN: 978-0-9797831-1-1) is the story of Hal Stratton, a man whose life is turned upside down when he finds himself facing the ultimate professional indignity: being fired from the company he created. These extraordinary circumstances send Hal into a tailspin as he struggles to make sense of what happened, and decide how to move forward. But this crisis eventually awakens Hal to a new way of seeing and thinking, and through his story of loss, fear, change, and discovery, Hal journeys from disappointment, bitterness, and anger, to true peace and fulfillment.
The Hero's Choice is a powerful, engaging tale of becoming, and learning to live from the inside out rather than the outside in. Through the engaging narrative, readers will discover a powerful set of principles for personal growth, gain a clear understanding of the difference between outer success and inner fulfillment, and acquire an extraordinary set of tools and processes for becoming stronger in the face of life's challenges.
Part inspirational story, part roadmap to personal success, and part guide to finding fulfillment, The Hero's Choice is an imminently readable tale about living an authentic life - no matter what the circumstances.
According to Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, "The Hero's Choice is a compelling story about a rather ordinary man, who finds his voice, transcends adversity, and elevates his life to a whole new level of existence. I highly recommend it for anyone committed to living with purpose and meaning."
