All that we take for granted in today's world is typically the result of one lucky break, one person’s point of clarity that has managed to shine through the efforts of many others. However, it is those that have fallen at the last hurdle, via back luck or ignorance, which A Brief History of Failure celebrates. And this group is legion. From the earliest days of civilisation to the political turmoil of modern politics, this book examines the groups and individuals who fall into the classification of losers. Research on the world's silver and bronze medalists has been painstakingly conducted to produce the most definitive text to date, with archive imagery added where possible to provide additional visual depth to each heart-rending titbit of failure. Contains some strong language - and maybe some spurious content.
