The number one New York Times best-selling author of Bare Bones, host of the marquee morning program The Bobby Bones Show, comedian, and dedicated philanthropist delivers an inspirational and humorous collection of stories about his biggest misses in life and how he turned them into lessons and wins. Bobby Bones is the youngest inductee ever into the National Radio Hall of Fame, alongside legends Dick Clark, Larry King, and Howard Stern.

Each weekday morning, more than five million fans tune in to his radio show. But as Bobby reveals, a lot of what made him able to achieve his goals were mistakes, awkward moments, and embarrassing situations - lemons that he turned into lemonade through hard work and humility. In this eye-opening audiobook, he’ll include ideas and motivations for finding success even when seemingly surrounded by impossible odds or tough failures. He also includes anecdotes from some of his famous friends who open up about their own missteps. Bobby’s mantra is: Fight. Grind. Repeat. A man who refuses to give up, he sees failure as something to learn from - and the recollections in this funny, smart audiobook, full of Bobby’s brand of self-effacing humor, show how he’s become such a beloved goofball. 1.

Includes Temple´s own quotes about her life and relationships. Includes a bibliography for further reading. ´´I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.´´ (Shirley Temple) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America´s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. Shirley Temple remains the most famous child star of all time, but even this designation fails to reflect the magnitude of her popularity during the era in which she worked. While it is true that she was not the first child actor to reach Hollywood fame, she was the first - and to this day, perhaps the only - star who rose to the very pinnacle of the Hollywood elite before she even turned 10 years of age. For this reason, it is no exaggeration to view Shirley as the progenitor for all of the child actors that succeeded her. Moreover, her cultural importance constitutes an even more important barometer through which to measure her overall significance. Not only was Shirley a film star, but she had a monumental impact on a generation of children who grew up during the Great Depression, with her plucky optimism representing an invaluable calming presence for an American public struggling both financially and emotionally. She was not only a young actress but also a brand name, someone who offered fathers and mothers hope for their children to achieve the same success as the famous child star. 1. Language: English.
