"Imagine yourself buried a hundred miles beneath the earth's surface. You are made of carbon crystals,
and the weight of the earth pressing in on you from all sides is condensing you into the purest and
toughest substance made by nature." You are a diamond, and the incredible pressure you have just
experienced makes you a very rare substance indeed.
Thus opens Barry Farber's newest book, Diamonds Under Pressure. By the author of the best seller,
Diamond in the Rough, this newest offering tackles adversity. In Diamonds Under Pressure, Farber
reveals how - like diamonds -we are shaped and strengthened by the pressures around us.
He goes on to say that it is not so much the adversities that successful people experience that make
them shine; it's the valuable lessons they learn from overcoming obstacles, from rising to a challenge,
from bouncing back from disappointment and failure. In fact, he points out that we can only truly
become a diamond when we learn to stand up to the pressures of life.

- Flourish in the face of adversity
- Fail wisely
- Change the way you look at hardship
- Understand your fears and have the courage to surpass them
- Focus your goals in five easy steps
- Organize a practical, action-oriented plan to achieve your dreams
Written in an easy-to-understand, readable style, this book will help the readers change the way
they look at failure - and open the door to success.
