From the Foreword, by Arnold Lazarus, PhD, ABPP: "I shudder when I think... when I, as a newly minted PhD in clinical psychology, was certified as competent and qualified... it is not farfetched to say I knew next to nothing..." "Newly minted" therapists aren't alone in making mistakes, of course; even seasoned professionals can benefit from discovering the 50+ most common errors therapists make, and how to avoid them. Newly revised and updated, this indispensable guide includes more case examples and adds seven ways "to fail" with child patients, too. How to Fail... details how to avoid errors such as not recognizing limitations, performing incomplete assessments, ignoring science, ruining the client relationship, setting improper boundaries, terminating improperly, therapist burnout, and more.
Success. It's a goal that many seek to achieve. They see the limos, the fans, the front cover of major magazines as the ultimate prize. But is success really what it's cracked up to be? Sadly enough, it isn't. Successful people around the world are hiding from the glory, dodging greedy relatives, shunning star-struck commuters. Why? Because their peace of mind is under attack. How can they regain their time, their sanity, their normalcy? Failure. This humorous, ground-breaking "how-to" book will help all to see clearer that the simpler things in like are not that bad. And to achieve it one must fail, but fail in style.

While many consider themselves experts at failed dating and courtship, this handy guide provides a multitude of dubious examples about how to be even worse. Instructions are given on how to develop an annoying hyena laugh, the appropriate moment to mention how cancerous your date looks, and the best time to drop a hot dog in your date's lap. Topics include dinner dates, movies, sports, how to obsess about your appearance, dancing and more. Obviously tongue-in-cheek, this bizarre guide will help you smile and recover after even the worst of your dating failures.
Blasting clichéd career advice, the contrarian pundit and creator of Dilbert recounts the humorous ups and downs of his career, revealing the outsized role of luck in our lives and how best to play the system. Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone you’ve ever met or anyone you’ve even heard of. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, Adams shares the game plan he’s followed since he was a teen: invite failure in, embrace it, then pick its pocket. No career guide can offer advice that works for everyone. As Adams explains, your best bet is to study the ways of others who made it big and try to glean some tricks and strategies that make sense for you. Adams pulls back the covers on his own unusual life and shares how he turned one failure after another—including his corporate career, his inventions, his investments, and his two restaurants—into something good and lasting. There’s a lot to learn from his personal story, and a lot of entertainment along the way. Adams discovered some unlikely truths that helped to propel him forward. For instance: • Goals are for losers. Systems are for winners. • “Passion” is bull. What you need is personal energy. • A combination of mediocre skills can make you surprisingly valuable. • You can manage your odds in a way that makes you look lucky to others. Adams hopes you can laugh at his failures while discovering some unique and helpful ideas on your own path to personal victory. As he writes: “This is a story of one person’s unlikely success within the context of scores of embarrassing failures. Was my eventual success primarily a result of talent, luck, hard work, or an accidental just-right balance of each? All I know for sure is that I pursued a conscious strategy of managing my opportunities in a way that would make it easier for luck to find me.”
