The Benefits of Failing Successfully – A book on failures by ENT surgeon & a stand up comedian Jagdish Chaturvedi

Dr. Jagdish Chaturvedi is a surgeon, innovator, author and a stand up comedian. The “absent minded professor” who goofs up and screws up in any given situation ! The inherent knack of making mistakes quickly and very early, makes him fail first, fail fast and fail cheap. Which he believes is very counterproductive and has always benefited him in the long run.  He thinks the reduced tolerance to fail, makes people Depressed, Anxious, Irritable and Frustrated. So, setbacks need to be looked at positively and that won’t happen until we change the way we look at it.

“The Benefits of Failing Successfully” is a book about his personal failures and includes 10 events from his life. Some funny, some embarrassing, some unfair and some sad, each incident followed by its inference. It is humorous and satirical. The caricatures help bring these out along with concise writing.

His first book – Inventing medical devices: A perspective from India, has case studies on mistakes while developing medical devices. Targeted at a very niche segment and he wrote it mainly because of his mentor’s advice who is a leading ENT specialist. To his surprise, the book did (is still doing) very well.  And that’s when he realised, that people might like to read about failures in general.
