Editorial Reviews

About the Author

What began as a knack for helping friends, family members, and classmates through personal struggles has grown into a lifelong career for Jim Moorhead, America's crisis advisor. Jim's humanity and passion for showing others how to confidently navigate through difficult situations is nothing short of remarkable.

Jim underwent his own personal crisis when he lost a statewide race that would have launched his political career. A few years later he accepted an extremely promising job, but the dot-com bust drove him even deeper into crisis. Drawing from a career spent helping corporations overcome large-scale upheavals, Jim developed a simple, actionable four-step system to help himself and others clear the types of professional and personal hurdles that many individuals encounter during their lives.

A graduate of Harvard College and Columbia Law School, Jim has coached hundreds of employees, business leaders, and political candidates on how to confront and conquer professional and personal disasters. An inspiring speaker as well as a respected crisis adviser, Jim regularly provides commentary on business and legal crises and has appeared on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, Court TV, and America's Talking.

Jim's work history as a reporter, investment banker, federal prosecutor, and political candidate gives him a breadth of experience that enables him to tailor his crisis management advice to individuals in all fields. He is currently a partner at a major Washington, DC, law firm, where he cofounded and cochairs the company's crisis management practice. With The Instant Survivor: Right Ways to Respond When Things Go Wrong, Jim has written the book on personal and professional crisis management and has become one of the country's most sought-after crisis management speakers.

More About the Author

An experienced crisis advisor, Jim Moorhead is a partner in a major Washington, D.C. law firm, where he co-chairs the firm's crisis management practice. Over the last thirty years, he has addressed crises as a political consultant advising national candidates, an investment banker helping Fortune 500 companies defend against hostile takeovers, and as national legal counsel to major companies and their executives facing regulatory, congressional and criminal investigations, civil litigation, and media scrutiny. A leading legal trade magazine recently profiled his firm's crisis management practice, which he co-founded.

He has triumphed over his own crises of losing a statewide political campaign and being a high-tech casualty.

He is an accomplished public speaker, drawing on his skills as a trial lawyer, former federal prosecutor, statewide political candidate, and TV commentator. For the last 20 years, he has been a frequent commentator on business and legal issues and major trials on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox Business News, Court TV and Washington, D.C. and Baltimore network affiliates. He was a regular guest host on an America's Talking show about waste in the federal government. He is frequently quoted in the media on business and legal issues.

Jim is a graduate of Columbia Law School and Harvard College. He lives in the Washington, DC area with his wife and their two children.

Very interesting book.
Romain Durand
I can't recommend this book more highly for those in crisis or for those who want to be prepared to help themselves, their friends, and their organizations.

Format: Hardcover
I have never written a review before, but I feel compelled to tell people to read this book. I know its silly to think Moorehead wrote the book for me, but Its simple, practical message, its wonderfully clear step by step tips for dealing with a crisis, its anecdotes and numerous examples, resonated in a way that made me wonder if the author had been peeking in my window. For me, Step Three on "Standing Tall" particularly resonated in such a simple way that I hate to use the word profound, but I have to: It was profoundly helpful. I know that others will have the same reaction: "The Instant Survivor" was written just for you. Read it, because it will help.

A quote from author Jim Moorhead's book states my comment best, "Control the crisis, not visa versa." This book is definitely a keeper!

I found this book at the precise time I needed its advice. With many life-altering events occurring one right after another, I was overwhelmed. The methodology for working through these events was clear, concise and, best of all, incredibly helpful. I recommend this book whether your life is sailing along smoothly or riding big waves of uncertainty.

Jim Moorhead and the "Instant Survivor" is much more than learning how to handle a business crisis. Jim has a way of explaining items clearly and simply in such a manner that the reader can apply it to every aspect of their life. Jim draws his understanding from being a great listener and wonderful instructor; always patient and able to see many points of view. This book will be one that is re-read for many years to come.

Format: Hardcover
The Instant Survivor is a must read. The book contains seemingly simple but profoundly effective ideas. I read it with the cynicism that many people have who are reasonably adept at dealing with their problems. Having an OK track record made seeking outside help, especially before the fact, seem unlikely to be productive. I was wrong. Jim Moorhead has conceived of a system though which you can survive serious problems, a structure upon which you can respond to crises - personal and professional alike. The Instant Survivor is a professional road map to get you through tough times no matter where you're coming from. It will not make you a better person - it will make you a more successful person by equipping you to respond to crises more successfully. The results will certainly speak for themselves. The Instant Survivor is now required reading for the people I care about. It should be an essential element in everyone's toolbox.

The Instant Survivor is a guide on how to deal with any crisis, professional or personal, and come out on top and a stronger, more empowered person because of it. A MUST read for anyone who wants to control their circumstances, not the other way around.

Insightful, pithy, and a terrific read on managing disaster when it strikes. Jim Moorhead is a superlawyer who has been through wars on Wall Street, in private practice, and in the corporate world. The result here is a witty, easy to read guidebook on how to respond when it hits the fan. Practical tips, plus an inventory of questions to ask when crisis hits in your professional or personal life. Pick it up.
