Jia Jiang came to the United States with the dream of being the next Bill Gates. But despite early success in the corporate world, his first attempt to pursue his entrepreneurial dream ended in rejection. Jia was crushed, and spiraled into a period of deep self doubt. But he realized that his fear of rejection was a bigger obstacle than any single rejection would ever be, and he needed to find a way to cope with being told no. Thus was born his “100 days of rejection” experiment, during which he willfully sought rejection on a daily basis and learned that even the most preposterous wish may be granted if you ask in the right way. But more important, he learned techniques for steeling himself against rejection and ways to develop his own confidence.

Rejection Proof is ideal for college success and personal development courses.  Please email rhacademic@penguinrandomhouse.com with your name, college and course information to request a desk or a free examination copy.
