Description

Most people would consider H. Jon Benjamin a comedy show business success. But he’d like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. And maybe the best option.

In this book, he tells stories from his own life, from his early days (‘wherein I’m unable to deliver a sizzling fajita’) to family (‘wherein a trip to P.F. Chang’s fractures a family’) to career (‘how I failed to sell a pilot’). As Jon himself says, breaking down one’s natural ability to succeed is not an easy task, but also not an insurmountable one.

Society as we know it is, sadly, failure averse. But more acceptance of failure, as Jon sees it, will go a long way to making this world a different place… a kinder, gentler place, where gardens are overgrown and most people stay home with their pets. A vision of failure, but also a vision of freedom.

With stories, examples of artistic and literary failure, and a powerful can’t-do attitude, Failure Is an Option is the book the world doesn’t need right now but will get regardless.
