Product Description

'Failure is an inevitable part of the human journey,' says award-winning television and radio broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author Tavis Smiley. Smiley steps from behind the curtain of success to share intimate stories of his missteps, misdeeds and often highly publicised 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.

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.
