'A beautiful timely and humane book. If there's one philosophy the world needs more of right now, it's Failosophy.' - Alain de Botton

'A pragmatic and pocket-sized guide to failure - how to cope with it and what to learn from it ...a must read.' - Glamour

'The timing of this guide couldn't be better - as we've navigated all of the stresses that come with the pandemic - and Day's advice is both practical and reassuring. It really is okay to fail.' -The Evening Standard

'Witty and likeable... thoughtful and probing.' - The Guardian

'A book full of wisdom, humour, humility, tenderness and heart. Elizabeth Day's beautiful, reassuring stories and observations are a guide to self-compassion, a celebration of all things imperfect and will galvanise you to try, try again.' - Dolly Alderton, author of Everything I Know About Love

'How To Fail has rapidly become my essential companion in this over-competitive, demanding world. By turns profound, witty, and extremely reassuring, Elizabeth Day's sublime deconstruction of the myth of 'success' - and the journey to find our own markers of contentment - is a life-changing gift to us all.' - Jessie Burton, author of The Muse

'Brilliant Elizabeth Day, who you could probably trust to talk eloquently about anything.' - The Evening Standard
