Conventional wisdom says that bullying is exclusively detrimental to one’s health, yet studies show that 47 percent of victims report a positive effect on their adult lives.

In Adversity to Advantage, Randy Ginsburg strives to inspire those who were bullied with words of wisdom from a diverse group of highly successful entrepreneurs. These individuals have overcome the aggressors from their past and used their negative experiences as stepping stones for personal and entrepreneurial growth.
