IN THIS SUMMARY

In The Good Fail, Richard Keith Latman tells the story of his company, Microworkz, and share the lessons he has drawn over time from its failure. Latman defines a “good fail” as one where the learning value is worth more value than what is lost in the process. In this book, he advises readers to get “good” at failing quickly and cheaply, and to be sure to learn something in the process in order to avoid ultimate failure. The Good Fail is aimed at entrepreneurs and leaders who want to start up new ventures. It is largely an autobiography of Richard Keith Latman, founder of the short-lived late-1990s company Microworkz. In addition to telling Microworkz’s story, Latman details his childhood, business efforts before Microworkz, rebound from the company’s failure, and founding of a new company.
