This book attempts to conceptualise failure. Such an important aspect of human development deserves to be understood fully, whatever occupation or facet of life we occupy. Alastair Arnott explores a deeper understanding of failure and a new theory to be applied in your own world. Failure is a natural and powerful psychological force. Without an understanding of it, we will see how it has managed to abuse, hinder and slow our development for thousands of years. But Arnott also explores how Positive Failure can shape and inform success, and form a foundation for ongoing personal and social improvement.
