How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big
By Scott Adams
Reviewer: Sadie-Jane Nunis
Dilbert’s Creator Tells His Story
MR Scott Adams is best known for being the creator of one of the world’s favourite characters, Dilbert.
I knew I had to pick this book up the minute I saw it as I adore Dilbert and think Mr Adams is a bit of a genius or has spy cameras everywhere since he is spot on for most of his comic strips.
If I could rate this book out of five, I would give it a four. If you are expecting wit that is anything close to his comic series, I would advise you to drop everything and pick up this book now.
He is witty throughout and makes this a delightful read. He articulates his ideas clearly and each chapter highlights how wise Mr Adam truly is.
Mr Adams challenges conventional thinking in the book and I think that is one (of many) reasons why his fans adore him.
There are 38 chapters in total but you can pick and choose which ones you would prefer to focus on.
Ranging from diets to affirmations, I am sure there will be a chapter for you. I love that they are only a few pages long so they can be read in parts. Highly recommended, especially for fans!
