FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

One of Hollywood's Biggest Failures Shares the Darkest Hours of America's Leading Celebrities

Los Angeles, CA    With the recent release of his inspiring new book, "Great Failures of the Extremely Successful" (Tallfellow Press), STEVE YOUNG, a multi-talented writer who refuses to be limited by any medium or arena, just may be the busiest and most versatile failure working today.  So it would only be fitting that this ambitious author would release his celebration of adversity's benefits buoyed by a petition drive to have Merriam-Webster amend their definition of "failure" to include: a stepping stone to success." 

An award-winning television writer, Young's work has been seen on such television programs as ABC’s "Boy Meets World," CBS’s "Cybill," HBO Family’s "Crashbox," Disney’s "The Smart Guy," and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  His credentials helped open major doors when he decided to pen "GREAT FAILURES..." as icons from a variety of fields stepped forward to share their remarkable stories of success built from adversity.  And that ain’t all.

In the past few months alone, Steve has sold his wacky children’s novel, "The 130 Tales of Winchell Mink" (Harper-Collins, 2004), his picture book series, "What If There Were No...?" (Smallfellow, 2003); scribed an episode of the WB’s new "Family Affair"; appeared all over national TV and radio pitching his own brand of satirical punditry and had his social observations appear in national periodicals from the Los Angeles Times and The National Lampoon, to his own weekly Internet column at Newsandopinion.com, and the Writers Guild Of America’s "Written By" magazine where he is also contributing editor. To top it off, he just wrote and directed his new film, "My Dinner With Ovitz."

With boundless energy and enthusiasm, we can expect the name of America’s new champion of failure to appear on an ever-growing number of programs and books lining the shelves of bookstores nationwide.*

On October 15, 2002, in his effort to help turn the economy around, Steve was found on Wall Street in front of the nation's financial center, handing out FREE copies of his book,.

In order to receive the book, brokers must first accept their part in the present Market's failure to rebound and make a committed effort to turn it around. On that day the market rallied, closing up, 325 points.
