Elizabeth Day: How To Fail
Inspired by her hugely popular podcast, How To Fail is Elizabeth Day’s latest book: part memoir, part manifesto, this is a book for anyone who has ever failed i.e. EVERYONE. Based on the simple premise that understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger, How to Fail reveals that failure is not what defines us; rather it is how we respond to it that shapes us as individuals.
Join the award-winning author and journalist, and special guest interviewer – BBC broadcaster and journalist Emma Barnett, for a brilliantly funny, painfully honest and insightful celebration of the things that haven’t gone quite right. Plus there’s the opportunity to ask Elizabeth your own questions: is ‘success’ a myth? How can we turn crisis into clarity? And does it really matter if you’re rubbish at tennis?
An uplifting and reassuring evening about learning from our mistakes and not being afraid. Because learning how to fail is actually learning how to succeed better. And everyone needs a bit of that.
