When her granddaughter was accepted to Naropa University, the celebrated author Pema Chödrön 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 Chödrön 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 Chödrön and Tami Simon.

extremely short Review by Evod

I bought this as a pdf book, ad was disappointed because it is so very short. It's the text of a rather short speech at a university, printed in a very large font, interspersed with rather large drawings, and a not-very-long interview at the end. Not a lot of substance here.
