    Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone you’ve ever met or anyone you’ve even heard of. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, Adams shares the strategy he has used since he was a teen to invite failure in, to embrace it, then pick its pocket.

    Story
    If you could sum up How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big in three words, what would they be?

    In the old days courts used to have a jester who was allowed to make fun of everyone including the royals and nobles.
    Scott Adams does make fun of a lot of things and his keen insight and advice is very good. For e.g the idea of putting on gym clothes even if you feel too tired to exercise. It really works. It is simple but certainly effective. Read or listen to this and I hope you find it as useful as I did.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big?

    When I heard the advice to put on gym clothes even if I was too tired to go.


    What about Patrick Lawlor’s performance did you like?

    Voice and variety


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Cialdini provides fascinating insight into how people avoid the work of making decisions and why they comply with requests in business settings. He has identified six principles which are so powerful that they generate desirable change in the widest range of circumstances.

    Kathleen says: "Top EXPERT on Persuasion"
    "Simple and memorable"
    Overall

    I listened to this lecture by Dr. Cialdini 3 years ago and applied the principles effectively multiple times in various situations. The takeaways are simple and a measure of their effect is that I can still remember 4 to 5 out of 6 principles at any time.

    All the best.
