About this item

Leslie Odom, Jr. burst on the scene in 2015, originating the role of Aaron Burr in the phenomenon Broadway musical "Hamilton." Since then, he has performed for sold-out audiences, sang for the Obamas at the White House, and won a Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical.

But before "Hamilton," Leslie put in years of hard work as a singer and actor, from debuting on Broadway in "Rent" at 17-years-old to attending Carnegie Mellon University's prestigious School of Drama, where he graduated with honors, to landing the role of a lifetime. How did he do it?

Written in the style of a commencement speech, Failing Up brings together what Leslie has learned in life so far, tapping into universal themes of starting something new, following your passions, discovering your own potential, and surrounding yourself with the right people.

Failing Up is about unlocking your true potential and making your dreams come true even when it seems impossible. Whether you're graduating from college, starting a new job, or just looking to live each day to the fullest, this is the perfect inspirational read as you embark on the journey ahead.
