Failosophy : A Handbook For When Things Go Wrong

Failosophy : A Handbook For When Things Go Wrong


 From the Sunday Times bestselling author of How to Fail and Magpie

'Elizabeth Day has revolutionised the way we see failure' Stylist

'A beautiful timely and humane book' Alain de Botton

'Most failures can teach us something meaningful about ourselves if we choose to listen'

In Failosophy Elizabeth Day brings together all the lessons she has learned, from conversations with the guests on her award-winning How to Fail podcast, from stories shared with her by readers and listeners, and from her own life, and distils them into seven principles of failure.

Practical, reassuring and inspirational, these principles offer a guide through life's rough patches. From failed exams to romantic break-ups, from career setbacks to confidence crises, from navigating anxiety to surviving loss, Failosophy recognises, and celebrates, the fact that failure connects us all. It is what makes us human.
