H. Jon Benjamin is widely considered a comedy show success, but he'd like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. And maybe the best option.
Breaking down one's natural ability to succeed is not an easy task, but also not an impossible one. Society as we know it is, unfortunately, opposes failure. If failure became more accepted it would make the world a different place, a kinder, gentler place, where gardens are overgrown and most people stay home with their pets. A vision of failure, but also a vision of freedom.
With stories, examples of artistic and literary failure, and a powerful can't-do attitude, Failure Is an Option is the book the world doesn't need right now but will get regardless.
Joining Jon to share his book is fellow comedian and actor, Eugene Mirman!
