Description: A celebrated art historian and curator examines one of the enduring enigmas of the human experience: the powerful role failure plays in our lives and how it can be a catalyst for creativity.Sarah Lewis has spent years investigating how "failure" enables us to transform ourselves, to reinvent ourselves, and to understand ourselves. The Rise is part investigation into a psychological mystery, part an argument about creativity and art, and part a soulful celebration of the determination and courage of the human spirit. This book argues that "failure" is vital. Ranging across all human endeavor--from arctic explorers to world-class athletes, from Nobel Prize-winning scientific experiments to jazz clubs and dance stages--Lewis shows how society's greatest successes have been riddled with "failure." Martin Luther King, Jr. overcame a speech impediment to become one of the most powerful orators in history. Maya Lin was given a "B" grade on the design that would become the world-famous Vietnam War Memorial. And this was the response to Fred Astaire's screen test in the 1930s: "Can't sing. Can't act. Balding. Can dance a little." The Rise is an inspiring book that has lessons for us all. But its most empowering lessons are about what it means to be human as we struggle for mastery in our various spheres.
