Okay, So this one was largely a bust, I had to read it though. It was the least boring sounding book from the title list. And had the shortest page count.

It does have some good points to it though. The key take away being that Failing is an integral part of the recipe for success, if you aren't screwing up then you are missing huge opportunities to improve.

The second take away is that if opportunity knocks take it no matter how inconvenient, or if it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. ( )
