Original Book Summary Overview

How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big is a humorous narration of the challenges the author encountered while navigating his way through the corporate world. He recounts how he grew from an incompetent worker in a phone company cubicle to the creator of one of the most successful comic strips. Adams draws rich productivity lessons from dozens of personal failures in his businesses and career. Through a depiction of his limited talents, Adams shows that success is not a product of exceptional skill or hard work but a balance of average skills, perseverance and luck.
