    Product Description

    "Failure is an inevitable part of the human journey," says award-winning television and radio broadcaster and New York Times best-selling author Tavis Smiley.

    Smiley steps from behind the curtain of success to share intimate stories of his missteps, misdeeds, and often highly publicized miscalculations in Fail Up: 20 Lessons On Building Success From Failure. These instances of perceived "failures" were, in fact, "lessons" that shaped the principles and practices that now guide his life. Readers will find a kinship in Smiley's humanness that inspires, informs, and reminds us of our ability to "fail up" in the face of life's inevitable setbacks.

    The year-long celebration of Smiley's 20th year anniversary in broadcasting will feature the Fail Up book tour.

    From his celebrated conversations with world figures . . . to his work to inspire the next generation of leaders . . . broadcaster, author, advocate, and philanthropist continues to be an outstanding voice for change. Smiley is currently the host of the late-night television talk show Tavis Smiley on PBS, and The Tavis Smiley Show distributed by Public Radio International (PRI).
    Smiley has authored or edited 14 books including his memoir, What I Know for Sure: My Story of Growing Up in America, which became a New York Times bestseller. The book he edited, Covenant with Black America, became the first nonfiction book by a Black-owned publisher to reach #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. His latest book, Accountable: Making America As Good As Its Promise, examines hard-hitting truths about the issues our country faces; and addresses how our political leaders, corporations, and finally, American citizens themselves, can enforce accountability and effect change.
