Ryan Babineaux and John Krumboltz, psychologists, career counselors, and creators of the popular Stanford University course “Fail Fast, Fail Often,” have come to a compelling conclusion: happy and successful people tend to spend less time planning and more time acting. They get out into the world, try new things, and make mistakes, and in doing so, they benefit from unexpected experiences and opportunities. Drawing on the authors’ research in human development and innovation, Fail Fast, Fail Often shows readers how to allow their enthusiasm to guide them, to act boldly, and to leverage their strengths—even if they are terrified of failure.

About the Narrators

Timothy Andrés Pabon is an English- and Spanish-speaking voice-over artist who has worked extensively in advertising and audiobook narration. He has had acting roles on House of Cards and has also been a costar on HBO’s acclaimed series The Wire opposite country music legend Steve Earl.

Dete Meserve is the award-winning, bestselling author of Good Sam and Perfectly Good Crime. When she’s not writing, she is a film and television producer in Los Angeles and a partner and CEO of Wind Dancer Films. Meserve has been fascinated by the stars ever since she first saw the Milky Way arching overhead while on a camping trip when she was ten. Her grandmother worked at NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center (now Johnson Space Center) during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, and the photos she sent from those missions made Meserve curious about the moon and all the wonders in the night sky. Her love for the stars has followed her into her adult life where she is an executive producer of Ready Jet Go!, an award-winning astronomy and earth science series watched by millions of kids on PBS Kids and around the globe. While working on the series, she began to see that there is a profound connection between all we are discovering in the realm of the stars, and the universe of emotions within ourselves. In her third novel, The Space Between, the stars offer an ideal backdrop for a story about rediscovering a love that’s been right in front of us all along. In the universe, as in love, so many of our most important discoveries are made when we look past what seems to be true, when we find ways around our blind spots, and when we discover new ways to see through the darkness into the light. Meserve lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children—and a very good cat that rules them all.
