What do Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein and Amitabh Bachchan have in common?
They are all success stories, but they also failed spectacularly.

Covering biographical details, trivia and learnings from the way each figure tackled failure, the lessons within the book can be applied to not just professional but also personal spheres.
