Scott Adams is not only a world-famous cartoonist, he’s also a world-class failure. And he's the first to admit it. In his new book, How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, the Dilbert creator explains how failure can lead to success if you develop the right skills to make the most of your mistakes.
Part memoir and part business guide, How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, is the entertaining and useful story of Adams' remarkable success within the context of dozens of failures.
Here's my interview with Scott in the first episode of my new occasional podcast, Incredibly Interesting Authors.
