Publisher's Summary

Ryan Babineaux and John Krumboltz, psychologists, career counselors, and creators of the popular Stanford University course “Fail Fast, Fail Often,” have come to a compelling conclusion: happy and successful people tend to spend less time planning and more time acting. They get out into the world, try new things, and make mistakes, and in doing so, they benefit from unexpected experiences and opportunities. Drawing on the authors’ research in human development and innovation, Fail Fast, Fail Often shows readers how to allow their enthusiasm to guide them, to act boldly, and to leverage their strengths - even if they are terrified of failure.

Critic Reviews

"Big goals are great - but not if they're paralyzing. In this fun and inspiring book, Rabineaux and Krumboltz show that taking small steps and accepting failures ultimately lead you down the path to success." (Laura Vanderkam, What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast)

A lot of great advice

I read a few reviews that nothing new was said but for someone that has never read a book like this there was a lot of new and inspiring ideas! I can't wait to see where it takes me. I will be listening again and pausing so I can do some of the exercises and sharing it. The best part is that if one of the ideas mentioned doesn't help there are a plethora of ideas to try next!

Direction and motivation to start change

Interesting perspectives to help you find direction in your life. There were some platitudes, but still worth listening to. The narration was understandable but flat. Would give three and a half stars if I could.

Beware!

This book will change your life... If you don't have the courage to follow the lessons presented in this book, don't worry, because this book won't change your life if you don't follow it. If you're looking for fulfillment, searching for your purpose as an entrepreneur then this book is for you.

Wonderfully motivating book

Excellent book. Listened to it cover to cover and came back both more motivated and ready to conquer my fears once and for all.
