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.

Not as original as it could have been

Overall, it was a decent read. I feel, however, like the author failed to fully develop the overriding theme to the degree he could have. Largely, this was a rehashing of ideas that are far more fleshed-out in other books. There was very little original research to bring anything new to the table.
