    Great book! It feels like a lot of younger people today are afraid to fail. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially younger adults.

    I had a hard time getting through the first chapter. So many of his examples to start were of extremes that I couldn’t relate to. It was a quick easy read and there is a good message, but I was looking for something that had more to it.

    I really enjoyed this book and needed to read it and reframe the way I look at risk and failure. I’ve been struggling at work and in my personal life with an unmanageable schedule and expectations. Failure is okay for unreasonable things. I found this book to be very freeing.

    I’m unable to write a review because I never received the book. I’ve contacted your office via email twice to address the issue but never received a reply. I just sent another message regarding this matter via the contact page of this website.

    Pretty straightforward. Nothing super surprising although I am curious about his documentaries. If you want a pep talk about trying and failing, you found it.

    This really sticks with me: “Failure is an event, not an outfit. Just because you went there doesn’t mean you have to wear it.”
