Book Summary of Better By Mistake: The Unexpected Benefits of Being Wrong

In this persuasive book, journalist Alina Tugend examines the delicate tension between what were told we must make mistakes in order to learn and the reality we often get punished for them. She shows us that mistakes are everywhere, and when we acknowledge and identify them correctly, we can improve not only ourselves, but our families, our work, and the world around us as well. Bold and dynamic, insightful and provocative, Better by Mistake turns our cultural wisdom on its head to illustrate the downside of striving for perfection and the rewards of acknowledging and accepting mistakes and embracing the imperfection in all of us.

You see, I am a person who makes many mistakes. Many. I don't tell lies and I don't play mind games, but I do screw...

Stewart December 08, 2012 review from Goodreads

After enjoying the 2010 book "Being Wrong" by Kathryn Schulz this spring, I have subsequently read two other books on mistakes and error, "Why We Make Mistakes" (2009) by Joseph T.
