The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery by Sarah Lewis

Through a broad range of anecdotes and stories, The Rise illustrates how some of humanity’s greatest achievements arose out of what initially appeared to be failure. The author shows how setbacks are an inevitable – and in fact, necessary – part of anyone’s journey to mastery.

  • Anyone who has difficulty coping with failure
  • Creatives of any kind
