Um bom livro para incentiv lo a tentar Alguns exemplos de erros not veis, de pessoas capazes aprender com seus equ vocos e n o paenas ficar lamentando os.Errar significa ser capaz de arriscar, de erguer se ap s a queda, de melhora cada vez mais.Ao final ap ndices, notas explicativas e ndice.Pena o livro ser t o curto As someone who lives in fear of failure, I liked this book as a way to get me to think about mistakes from another angle The author does a good job of keeping what could become dry material interesting through the use of stories and examples The book can take some technical swings into economic and business theory but I was able to follow without a problem and I got a few strategies to test out the next time a mistake comes up at work I ll work up to the deliberate mistakes as I go. Solid concept and, likely, a convincing approach to framing experimentation in a corporate environment. The premise of the book is that mistakes are the portals to discovery E.g discovery of penicillin by Alexander Fleming invention of light bulb by Thomas Edison or flight by the Wright Brothers Where, it was argued, that either conventional wisdom was that it could not be done such as human flight , or some form of sloppiness out of the norm led to the discovery like penicillin, or for that matter, saccharin , or just dogged determination despite multiple failures like the light bulb The premise of the book is that mistakes are the portals to discovery E.g discovery of penicillin by Alexander Fleming invention of light bulb by Thomas Edison or flight by the Wright Brothers Where, it was argued, that either conventional wisdom was that it could not be done such as human flight , or some form of sloppiness out of the norm led to the discovery like penicillin, or for that matter, saccharin , or just dogged determination despite multiple failures like the light bulb Ok, I can accept that Except that I wouldn t classify some of them as mistakes though I accept that staying within a comfort zone is unlikely to lead to any amazing discoveries and to make discoveries, and push the boundaries, one must accept mistakes along the way A so so read Absolutely fascinating read Again, another quality Wharton Digital Press Publication that I received from Netgalley and read in one day This book had alotother data to absorb, so this will be a book I purchase and mark up.Information in this book was discussed in business school, but I thought the author did an excellent job of laying it out, discussing it and offered fantastic examples I could see this book used in everything from new ventures to organizational development. Fail harder Fail better What does that actually mean The author shows that making mistakes can be good for both people and companies The mistakes he s talking about areexperiments than mistakes The book is about not allowing fear of failure to shut down attempts and he makes the very good point that companies should reward both effort and results He gives plenty of good examples from history and really shows how being comfortable with failure is a key component of success.
