Most new products fail. So do most businesses. And most of us have experienced setbacks in our personal lives. So why do some failures inspire breakthroughs, and others breakdowns? Why do some people say losing their job, or getting divorced is the best thing that ever happened to them whilst others take years to get back on their feet?
Drawing on the latest research in science, psychology and economics, and taking insights from doctors, teachers, mountaineer and venture capitalists, the author argues that the experience of failure is how people and businesses learn. But they have to learn to fail well.
A unique and inspiring thesis that offers a new paradigm for understanding what makes people and companies succeed.
