Let’s face it: we all want a seat at the cool table, a great job, and loads of money. But most of us won’t be able to achieve this widely accepted, black-or-white, definition of winning, which makes us feel like failures, that we’re destined to a life of loserdom. That’s the conventional wisdom. It’s also crap, according to comedian and cult hero Chris Gethard, who knows a thing of two about losing. Failing is an art form, he argues; in fact, it’s the only the way we’re ever going to discover who we are, what we really want, and how to live the kind of life we only dreamed about.

As a fan of Chris Gethard, I knew he was funny, and knew he was a good writer, but this book is incredibly insightful. He somehow managed to make a self help group that doesn't use fluffy positive messaging or recycled eastern philosophy. I recommend this book to anybody who aspires for something better in life.
