How to Fail at Almost Everything and still Win Big - Book Review

About Author-
Scott Adom  is the creater of Dilbert Comic strips. The author has faced lots of failures in his life and he used his failures as climbing steps for reaching success. He has a unique answer to the big question in the universe that is “How to achieve success?” I have read many books on this similar subject but I never came across such a different approach and I became a fan of this book.



Book Review-
This book is a kind of Unique Guide for Success. This book will not give you a success formula but, will help you to find out a pattern for yourself to obtain success. As we are aware about the famous quote “failure is the first step of success”, In this book author has mentioned his life failures and those are really a good lesson teachers for all of us. It is better to learn from other’s mistake and gain some experience. Being a start-up entrepreneur I have failed many times and even I am not afraid of trying new things in my life, hence this book amuses me with fact that author tried so many different things and failed until he finds his actual career success.
          In this book author presents new ways about the process of finding happiness and success. If you are at the stage of staring a journey towards success or you are at the stage where you want to find out what wrong you have been doing until now, then this book will surely give you some novel ideas. The author’s primary success is a result of talent, luck and hard work but he pursued a conscious strategy of managing his opportunities in a way that would make it easier for luck to find him.

Six Filters for Truth From This Book

1. Personal Experience -" Human Perceptions are iffy".
2. Experts- "They work for money,not truth"
3. Experience of people you know- "Even more unreliable"
4. Common Sense-" A good way to be mistaken with complete confidence"
5. Scientific Studies- " Correlation is not causation"
6. Pattern Recognition-" Coincidence , personal bias,look alike"


To summarize this review I can say that, this book is about “Failing towards Success”.
