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.
