About the Author

"I applaud the brilliant work of Bob Klitgaard's Prevail. . . . Its messages are presented with a unique kind of engaging erudition that has much to offer for general audiences as well as more academic ones. Buy, read, share Prevail to friends, family, and colleagues."

--Phil Zimbardo, President & Founder, Heroic Imagination Project

"Whether you are seeking solutions to dilemmas that you are confronting or deeper and better ways to think about them, Robert Klitgaard's wide-ranging book will give you lots to contemplate."

--Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Robert Klitgaard is one of those rare professors who harnesses rigorous academic inquiry to big human questions, making his writing both insightful and relevant. With each new work, Klitgaard further journeys far beyond the status of academic intellectual to the role of wise teacher from whom we can all learn.''

--Jim Collins, author of Good to Great

"Reading Klitgaard's exploration of intimate partnerships will deepen your romantic love and result in a sustained experience of joy, passion, and human flourishing."

--Kimberly J. Miller, author of Boundaries for Your Soul

"Too often, life is about getting by, avoiding hardship and upheaval. That is a missed opportunity. In Prevail, Robert Klitgaard masterfully lays out the hero's path to ordinary greatness by seeing all of life as a calling. We all need this book."

--Arthur C. Brooks, author of The Road to Freedom

"Prevail gives us practical advice on how to face life's big challenges, based on the examples set by people who have lived lives that are full, not necessarily with accomplishments, but with service, gratitude, and intimacy."

--Francis Fukuyama, Stanford University

"Presented very much from a Christian perspective, this excellent book actually reflects the wisdom of all the world's great religions. It provides invaluable resources and wonderful inspiration."

--David Rosen, International Director of Interreligious Affairs, American Jewish Committee
