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.

The author compellingly guides the reader through a comprehensive, but by no means overwhelming, system for facing whatever challenge you have and emerging out the other side stronger, better. He peppers each stage with real-life stories of celebrities, business stars, and "normal folks" too, which pull you in and illustrate his points beautifully. They keep the pace quick and ensure key points stick.
I particularly loved the survivor questions and the workshops built into each chapter of the book. I scribbled away in my notebook as I read and felt empowered and refreshed by the end of the book. Far from just a book for business crises, it's a must-have step-by-step guide to navigating any tough spot in life - a resource you'll turn to again and again I'm sure.
