One Door Closes, Another Door Opens

Arthur Pine, Author, Julie Houston, With Delacorte Press $16.95 (172p) ISBN 978-0-385-31125-0
Writing with freelancer Houston, Pine, the president of a New York City literary agency that bears his name, calls on his celebrity friends, as well as the lesser known, to relate how failure or loss became a turning point in their lives. We hear from Walter Cronkite, George Burns, Milton Berle, Pat Riley and others who capitalized on a disappointing twist of fate, resulting in changed careers and perspectives on life. Also included are Pine's conventional tips--``Pine's Pearls of Wisdom''--on how to carry on after seeming failures and turn negative experiences, such as job loss and rejection, into something positive. First serial to Reader's Digest. (Jan.)
