Zoom meets Beautiful Oops! in this memorable picture book debut about the creative process, and the way in which "mistakes" can blossom into inspiration One eye was bigger than the other. That was a mistake. The weird frog-cat-cow thing? It made an excellent bush. And the inky smudges… they look as if they were always meant to be leaves floating gently across the sky. As one artist incorporates accidental splotches, spots, and misshapen things into her art, she transforms her piece in quirky and unexpected ways, taking readers on a journey through her process. Told in minimal, playful text, this story shows readers that even the biggest “mistakes” can be the source of the brightest ideas—and that, at the end of the day, we are all works in progress, too. Fans of Peter Reynolds’s Ish and Patrick McDonnell’s A Perfectly Messed-Up Story will love the funny, poignant, completely unique storytelling of The Book of Mistakes. And, like Oh, The Places You’ll Go!, it makes the perfect graduation gift, encouraging readers to have a positive outlook as they learn to face life’s obstacles. From the Hardcover edition.

The monastery of St. Ambrose is situated on the Irish island of Morcarrick. Here, monks old and young live quiet lives spent in prayer and service. One day the Abbot decides that Brother Bede, their finest illuminator of manuscripts, will illustrate the Christmas story. It will be magnificent, praised throughout the world (as will St. Ambrose). Unfortunately, young Brother Cuthbert has been chosen to assist Brother Bede in this project. Cuthbert is impatient, lacks discipline, and even worse--is known for making mistakes. His nickname is "Smudge." How can someone so ill-suited assist in the creation of the greatest book of all? Award-winning author Gloria Whelan shows that sometimes, when given the right task, someone's greatest weakness can prove to be his greatest strength.

“A thought-provoking critique of Einstein’s tantalizing combination of brilliance and blunder.”—Andrew Robinson, New Scientist Although Einstein was the greatest genius of the twentieth century, many of his groundbreaking discoveries were blighted by mistakes, ranging from serious errors in mathematics to bad misconceptions in physics and failures to grasp the subtleties of his own creations. This forensic biography dissects Einstein’s scientific mistakes and places them in the context of his turbulent life and times. In lively, accessible prose, Hans C. Ohanian paints a fresh, insightful portrait of the real Einstein at work, in contrast to the uncritical celebrity worship found in many biographies. Of the approximately 180 original scientific papers that Einstein published in his lifetime, about 40 are infested with mistakes. For instance, Einstein’s first mathematical proof of the famous formula E = mc2 was incomplete and only approximately valid; he struggled with this problem for many years, but he never found a complete proof (better mathematicians did). Einstein was often lured by irrational and mystical inspirations, but his extraordinary intuition about physics permitted him to discover profound truths despite—and sometimes because of—the mistakes he made along the way. He was a sleepwalker: his intuition told him where he needed to go, and he somehow managed to get there without quite knowing how. As this book persuasively argues, the defining hallmark of Einstein’s genius was not any special mathematical ability but an uncanny talent to use his mistakes as stepping stones to formulate his revolutionary theories.

"Your shortest route to success is failure!" Imagine living in a world where you transform each one of your mistakes into a success story. Just consider what this would do to your business, bottom line, stress levels, growth, and happiness. After interviewing 163 of the world's finest business minds, Matthew Turner proposes you can, and in 'The Successful Mistake: How 163 of The World's Greatest Entrepreneurs Transform Failure Into Success' you'll learn how to bounce back from mistakes quicker and stronger than even those you admire have. Featuring the likes of Chris Brogan (New York Times bestselling author), Rachel Elnaugh (BBC Dragon's Den investor), Mitch Joel (Media Visionary and recipient of the prestigious Canada's Top 40 Under 40 award) and many other inspiring thought-leaders, The Successful Mistake uncovers their biggest mistakes and how they transformed these into successful legacies that continue to thrive. So if you've ever asked yourself what the most important business mistakes to avoid are, and the red flags you need to look out for, The Successful Mistake is for you because Matthew Turner has discovered a Seven Stage Process everyone goes through after making a mistake, but that successful entrepreneurs approach differently to most. All that's left to do is dive in and discover how your next (or even your current) failure can become your greatest success yet. "Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit" -- Napolean Hill from Think & Grow Rich "Too often, stories about entrepreneurship focus on the glamorous upside. Matthew Turner's book shows what it's really like in the trenches - the hard things people don't usually talk about. It's a valuable reminder that nothing comes easy, but anything is possible with effort." -- Dorie Clark, Author of Stand Out "The moment I heard about The Successful Mistake, I couldn't wait to be involved. There are not enough resources that focus on overcoming mistakes and failure, but it's a huge hurdle all entrepreneurs must tackle in order to be a successful business owner." -- Scott Oldford, Author of Connections That Count "Matthew Turner's The Successful Mistake is proof positive that the very things that trip us up are the same things that help us grow and develop. Bravo to Matthew on this important and inspiring read." -- Debbie Millman, Author Brand Thinking & Other Noble Pursuits "Anyone who tries anything often enough will fail. Worse still: the bigger, more important things you try, the more likely they will fail. This leaves you with two options: - Stop now because you'll never win, and your current [job/relationship/situation] isn't so bad anyway...or - Start now, because failure is inevitable, so better get used to it and get good at rebounding. If you choose option 2, check out Matthew Turner's book "The Successful Mistake" - it will help you through the hard times by showing you people who have been in your shoes, have failed often and epically, and yet have succeeded in spite of all the failure, pain, sweat, and tears (in many cases - because of it)." -- Tom Morkes, Author of Collaborate

Nobody wants to fail. But in highly complex organizations, success can happen only when we confront our mistakes, learn from our own version of a black box, and create a climate where it’s safe to fail. We all have to endure failure from time to time, whether it’s underperforming at a job interview, flunking an exam, or losing a pickup basketball game. But for people working in safety-critical industries, getting it wrong can have deadly consequences. Consider the shocking fact that preventable medical error is the third-biggest killer in the United States, causing more than 400,000 deaths every year. More people die from mistakes made by doctors and hospitals than from traffic accidents. And most of those mistakes are never made public, because of malpractice settlements with nondisclosure clauses. For a dramatically different approach to failure, look at aviation. Every passenger aircraft in the world is equipped with an almost indestructible black box. Whenever there’s any sort of mishap, major or minor, the box is opened, the data is analyzed, and experts figure out exactly what went wrong. Then the facts are published and procedures are changed, so that the same mistakes won’t happen again. By applying this method in recent decades, the industry has created an astonishingly good safety record. Few of us put lives at risk in our daily work as surgeons and pilots do, but we all have a strong interest in avoiding predictable and preventable errors. So why don’t we all embrace the aviation approach to failure rather than the health-care approach? As Matthew Syed shows in this eye-opening book, the answer is rooted in human psychology and organizational culture. Syed argues that the most important determinant of success in any field is an acknowledgment of failure and a willingness to engage with it. Yet most of us are stuck in a relationship with failure that impedes progress, halts innovation, and damages our careers and personal lives. We rarely acknowledge or learn from failure—even though we often claim the opposite. We think we have 20/20 hindsight, but our vision is usually fuzzy. Syed draws on a wide range of sources—from anthropology and psychology to history and complexity theory—to explore the subtle but predictable patterns of human error and our defensive responses to error. He also shares fascinating stories of individuals and organizations that have successfully embraced a black box approach to improvement, such as David Beckham, the Mercedes F1 team, and Dropbox.
