Publisher Description:
Even the most well-known people have struggled to succeed This follow-up to Fantastic Failures offers up a second dose of fascinating stories featuring flops that turned into triumphs.

Kids today are under a lot of pressure to succeed, but failure has an important place in life as young people learn how to be a successful person. In his teaching career, Luke Reynolds saw the stress and anxiety his students suffered, whether it was over grades, fitting in, or simply getting things right the first time. Even More Fantastic Failures is a second installment in Luke Reynolds's personal campaign to show kids it's okay to fall down or make mistakes, just so long as you try, try again

Kids will read about a host of inspiring, courageous, and diverse people who have accomplished--or still are accomplishing--big things to make this world a better place. A wide range of stories about Barack Obama, Greta Thunberg, Nick Foles, Emma Gonzalez, Beyonc , Ryan Coogler, John Cena, Socrates, and even the Jamaican national women's soccer team, prove that the greatest mistakes and flops can turn into something amazing. In between these fun profiles, Reynolds features great scientists and other pivotal people whose game-changing discovery started as a failure. Readers will enjoy seeing stories they know highlighted in the new feature "Off the Page and On the Screen," which showcases how failures and successes are presented in books and film.

Each profile includes advice to readers on how to come back from their own flops and move forward to succeed.
