Terry Giles knows what it takes to make it big—without the help of a wealthy background. In his latest book, Giles breaks down the circumstances that make life seem impossible and how some individuals are able not only to overcome their beginnings, but excel in a chosen path. Giles believes that 15% of those born into or experiencing extreme adversity are able to rise far beyond what's expected of them. And becoming one of those few is possible for anyone.
Giles has seen it all. After growing up in poverty, he became one of Texas's most prominent lawyers. Then, after Richard Pryor set himself on fire (yes, literally), Giles became a Hollywood and Washington lawyer. Along the way, he represented clients at the center of prominent cases like Anna Nicole Smith's inheritance suit, the Lewinsky trial, and even the Catholic sex abuse scandal. But he gave it all up to become an entrepreneur.
As an entrepreneur, Giles was just as successful as he was in law, opening some 35 businesses—and eventually becoming Dr. Ben Carson's campaign chief in his 2016 presidential run. We're thrilled to be partnering with Skyhorse Publishing to give away five copies of Giles's newest book, sure to become a motivational classic.

About the Book
The Fifteen Percent
One of today’s most successful entrepreneurs shares his story “of inspiration and information [that] will inspire you to push yourself to the next level” (Stedman Graham, businessman, speaker, and author of Identity Leadership).
Terry Giles, “the man behind the scenes who litigated—and sometimes mitigated—some of the most sensationally nasty celebrity and political dramas of the last several decades” (The Texas Tribune), attributes his own success to being part of “the fifteen percent” of people who are able to rise above despair and succeed against all odds. Using examples from his career and life—defending child sex abuse victims, his involvement in Monica Lewinsky’s trial, and even managing Dr. Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign—he illustrates these ideas in action. In each chapter, you’ll learn valuable skills, including fearlessness, embracing underdog status, visualizing the future, and positive thinking—and proving that you do not have to be a victim of bad circumstances to adopt the superpowers of “the fifteen percent.”
Entertaining, inspiring, and full of useful insights, The Fifteen Percent will help you overcome whatever’s holding you back, so you can achieve lasting success.
