"Harvard Book Store welcomed curator and Yale faculty member Sarah Lewis for a discussion of her new book, The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. The gift of failure is a riddle. Like the number zero, it will always be both a void and the start of infinite possibility. The Rise'a soulful celebration of the determination and courage of the human spirit'makes the case that many of our greatest triumphs come from understanding the importance of this mystery. The Rise explores the inestimable value of often ignored ideas'the power of surrender for fortitude, the criticality of play for innovation, the propulsion of the near win on the road to mastery, and the importance of grit and creative practice."
