Description
When her granddaughter was accepted to Naropa University, the celebrated author Pema Chḏrṉ promised that she'd speak at the commencement ceremony. Fail, Fail Again, Fail Better contains the wisdom shared on that day. "What do we do when life doesn't go the way we hoped?" begins Pema. "We say 'I'm a failure.'" But what if failing wasn't just "okay" . . . but the most direct way to becoming a more complete, loving, and fulfilled human being? Here, Pema Chḏrṉ offers us her heartfelt advice on facing the unknown-in ourselves and in the world-and how our missteps can open our eyes to see new possibilities and purpose. For readers of all faiths who are at a life crossroads, this brilliant gem of kindness and clarity is sure to earn its place in our kitchens, offices, and backpacks, ready to help us get back on our feet and into our hearts. Includes an in-depth interview with Pema Chḏrṉ and Tami Simon.
