My Best Mistake: Epic Fails and Silver Linings (Hardcover)
In his fascinating and meticulously researched new book My Best Mistake, Terry O’Reilly recounts how some of the biggest breakthroughs and best-loved products originated with a mistake. Some people’s “mistakes” led to dramatic life changes – losing their jobs, their companies and often their credibility – only for them to discover new opportunities on the other shore. Other people’s mistakes seemed minor, almost insignificant – until they led to a famous brand, a legendary band or a groundbreaking work of art. And in a few instances, a mistake actually saved lives.
