Product description

Review

"Adams has a funny, refreshingly considered set of ideas about how to find success--and what that success will look like when one gets there."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Scott Adams has drawn nearly 9,000 Dilbert cartoons since the strip began, in 1989, and his cynical take on management ideas, the effectiveness of bosses, and cubicle life has affected the worldview of millions. But he built his successful career mainly through trial and error--a whole lot of error, to be exact.
--Harvard Business Review

From the Back Cover

'Everything you want out of life is in that bubbling vat of failure. The trick is to get the good stuff out'

Scott Adams has probably failed at more things than anyone you've ever met. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world's most famous comic strips, in just a few years?

In this brilliant book, Adams shows us how to invite failure in, embrace it, then pick its pocket.

[Insert cartoon strip here]

No career guide can offer advice that works for everyone. Your best bet is to study the ways of others who made it big and try to glean some tricks that make sense for you. So here Scott Adams tells how he turned one failure after another - including a corporate career, inventions, investments, and two restaurants - into something successful. Along the way he discovered some unlikely truths. Goals are for losers; systems are for winners. Forget 'passion'; what you need is personal energy.

While you laugh at his failures, you'll discover some helpful ideas for your own path to personal victory. As he puts it: 'This is a story of one person's unlikely success within the context of scores of embarrassing failures. Was my eventual success primarily a result of talent, luck, hard work, or an accidental just-right balance of each? All I know for sure is that I pursued a strategy of managing my opportunities in a way that would make it easier for luck to find me.'
