  • Description
    What do Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein and Amitabh Bachchan have in common? They are all success stories, but they also failed spectacularly. 21 Fantastic Failures brings to you the real-life stories of icons from the fields of business, science, technology, politics, sports, literature, art, film, TV and music, highlighting the points in their lives where each of them failed but, undeterred, decided to pick themselves up and forge ahead. The decisions they made in those moments converted their setbacks into triumphs and etched their names in history. Covering biographical details, trivia and learnings from the way each figure tackled failure, the lessons within the book can be applied to not just professional but also personal spheres. Every chapter is presented in a simple, entertaining way to serve as a practical guidebook for twenty-first century readers. Contains chapters on: Amitabh Bachchan, The Beatles, Richard Branson Julia Child, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison Albert Einstein, Lady Gaga, Vincent van Gogh Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, Nelson Mandela Lionel Messi, Elon Musk, Colonel Sanders Dr. Seuss, Steven Spielberg, Ratan Tata, Vera Wang Serena Williams and Oprah Winfrey

    Author Info
    • SONALI MISRA decided at a young age that if she was ever going to be stuck working at a desk, it would be for something she enjoyed. She mapped out her life accordingly (or at least she likes to think so), so that it would revolve around her passion for words and stories. She began writing at the age of eight and has now been published in British and Indian anthologies, and of course, the book you’re holding. Born and brought up in Delhi, Sonali attained her Bachelor’s in English from Lady Shri Ram College for Women, worked in book publishing for four years and then completed a Master’s degree in creative writing from The University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom. While in the UK, she also co-founded an international literary magazine that exclusively promotes underrepresented voices. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Publishing Studies from the University of Stirling, UK, and is simultaneously working on her first novel.

    An excellent read

    21 Fantastic Failures is an excellent compilation of the journeys of successful people across a variety of spectrums. It brings about how they overcame adverse situations to become the very best in their respective fields.

    While the moments of glory of these personalities are widely known to the masses, reading the book gives a great insight into how they tackled their low phases and how these failures (along with how the individuals dealt with them) played a role in achieving success.

    Brilliant

    Drawing both from historical figures (Edison, Disney) and contemporary icons (Musk, Amitabh Bachchan), the author is able to nudge the reader into a state of optimistic grit. It is a brilliantly written book that reminds one to look within, start that dream project, play to one’s strengths and most importantly not give up when faced with failure. After reading I purchased a second copy for my school going brother who needed some motivation to follow his passion :)
