About this item

Successful Canadians write about failure, and how it got them where they are today.

With Chapters By …
  • astronaut Robert Thirsk
  • Olympic gold medalist, wrestler Erica Wiebe
  • Chair of OpenText and of the National Research Council, Tom Jenkins
  • co-founder of the Just for Laughs comedy festival, Andy Nulman
  • … and others at the top of their fields.
What does it mean to fail? To some of the most successful Canadians, it was a rite of passage, a stepping stone to greater things, or even a brilliant source of inspiration. Olympic golds, successful businesses, pioneering medical advances — all came about after a series of missteps and countless attempts.

Canadian Failures gathers ten experts from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors and academia, all of whom have grappled with failures and success throughout their lives. Their powerful argument: that Canada, and Canadians, must be willing to learn from failure if we hope to succeed.
