H. Jon Benjamin’s “Failure Is An Option: An Attempted Memoir” Out Now


Though it may not come as a surprise to you that a man that released a jazz album where he played piano without knowing how to play piano wrote a memoir about failure, H. Jon Benjamins love affair with failing is something to behold.

Failure Is An Option: An Attempted Memoir really delves into the nuances and various facets of failure, specifically in Benjamin’s life, in his wry fashion and is undoubtedly a cathartic read in these times we live in. 

True to form, Benjamin didn’t even praise this book that he wrote when appearing to promote it on Colbert this week, which, ironically, is a pretty clever sell for a book about screwing up being OK.

You can now get Failure Is An Option from Penguin Random House here.
