Read full description of the books:
New York Times columnist Alina Tugend delivers an eye-opening big idea: Embracing mistakes can make us smarter, healthier, and happier in every facet of our lives.
In this persuasive book, journalist Alina Tugend examines the delicate tension between what we’re told—we must make mistakes in order to learn—and the reality—we often get punished for them. She shows us that mistakes are everywhere, and when we acknowledge and identify them correctly, we can improve not only ourselves, but our families, our work, and the world around us as well. Bold and dynamic, insightful and provocative, Better by Mistake turns our cultural wisdom on its head to illustrate the downside of striving for perfection and the rewards of acknowledging and accepting mistakes and embracing the imperfection in all of us.

Read information about the authorI went to college at U.C. Berkeley and after graduation moved to the East Coast to pursue journalism. I was a reporter on various newspapers (taking a year out to do a Fellowship in Law for Journalists at Yale University), primarily covering educational and environmental issues.
Then my husband and I moved to London. I continued freelancing and working for a non-profit while having two sons. We moved to New York in 2000. I continued freelancing for newspapers and magazines, and began writing my biweekly ShortCuts column for the New York Times business section in 2005. My book grew out of a column I wrote on the subject of mistakes.
I have also been the parenting columnist for Worth magazine for the past two years.
