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.

Chris kills it if course, enjoyable book with great take away lessons. I'm not even done yet but since it's a new book I wanted to rate so that people will buy it!

We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

I had heard an exerpt from the book on a Tim Ferriss podcast when he was dealing with some tough times. I understand the value now and why he found this to be such an important tool. I have listened once through but it will be a good one to listen to again when I start to forget the message. #audible1

Lots of great guidelines, just have to tune out some religious themes if that's not your vibe.
