Product details of The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery
- From celebrated art historian, curator, and teacher Sarah Lewis, a fascinating examination of how our most iconic creative endeavorsÃ¢â‚¬â€from innovation to the artsÃ¢â‚¬â€are not achievements but conversions, corrections after failed attempts. The gift of failure is a riddle: it will always be both the void and the start of infinite possibility. The RiseÃ¢â‚¬â€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 spiritÃ¢â‚¬â€makes the case that many of the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s greatest achievements have come from understanding the central importance of failure. Written over the course of four years, this exquisite biography of an idea is about the improbable foundations of a creative human endeavor. Each chapter focuses on the inestimable value of often ignored ideasÃ¢â‚¬â€the power of surrender, how play is essential for innovation, the Ã¢â‚¬Å“near winÃ¢â‚¬Â can help propel you on the road to mastery, the importance of grit and creative practice. The Rise shares narratives about figures past and present that range from choreographers, writers, painters, inventors, and entrepreneurs; Frederick Douglass, Samuel F.B. Morse, Diane Arbus, and J.K. Rowling, for example, feature alongside choreographer Paul Taylor, Nobel PrizeÃ¢â‚¬â€œwinning physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, and Arctic explorer Ben Saunders. With valuable lessons for pedagogy and parenting, for innovation and discovery, and for self-direction and creativity, The Rise Ã¢â‚¬Å“gives the old chestnut Ã¢â‚¬ËœIf at first you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t succeedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ a jolt of adrenalineÃ¢â‚¬Â (Elle).
