Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure

Author: Tim Harford

Book Site: Adapt

In this economics book, Tim Harford, the Undercover Economist, shows us a new approach to solving the most pressing problems in our lives. When faced with complex situations, we have all become accustomed to looking to our leaders to set out a plan of action and blaze a path to success. Harford argues that today’s challenges cannot be tackled with easy solutions and expert opinion. We must adapt.

The author blends psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, physics, and economics, along with the stories of hard-won lessons learned in the field, Harford makes a case for the importance of adaptive trial and error in tackling issues such as climate change, poverty, and financial crises -- as well as in fostering innovation and creativity in our business and personal lives. Adapt explains the ingredients for turning failure into success.
