#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Winner of ABC's Dancing with the Stars (Season 27)
The #1 New York Times bestselling 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. As "the most powerful man in country music" (Forbes), he has reached the peak of his profession and achieved his childhood dreams. 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 book, 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—Andy Roddick, Chris Stapleton, Charlamagne Tha God, Charles Esten, Brooklyn Decker, Walker Hayes and Asa Hutchinson—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 book, full of Bobby’s brand of self-effacing humor, show how he’s become such a beloved goofball.

Ready to run though walls.
This book has inspired me to fight, grind, repeat. If I need to get to the other side of a wall, there’s only one way to get through and I know I can fail and keep going.
Funny and honest
So I never read his first book, but I listen to him all the time on the radio. I decided I should read this book. I was honestly surprised it was good. Like really good. He was honest and funny. What I got out of it the most was that I just have to do me. Instead of worrying about what everyone else is doing and how far behind I am, just do what I am doing. I’ll eventually get to my goal or figure out something else along the way. This book is for everyone to read. I think it can help anyone with just everyday life.
This was an awesome read. Thank you for your hard work & dedication. #pimpinjoy
