Famous Fails!: Mighty Mistakes, Mega Mishaps, & How a Mess Can Lead to Success!
By Crispin Boyer
National Geographic, 2016. J Informational. 128p.
This colorful, non-fiction compendium chronicles famous failures throughout history, from Thomas Edison’s early lightbulbs, to McDonald’s “McSpaghetti” phase, to the accidental invention of Play-Doh.
With lots of photographs, fun captions, and sidebars called things like “It Could Be Worse” and “Lesson Learned,” this is a great book to pick up and flip through, stopping at whatever catches your eye and reading as little or as much as you want to.
An entertaining way to learn some fun facts about history and to remember that failure is just a stepping stone to success.
