Kindle Pre-Orders Open for “The Mistakes That Make Us” — Enter to Win Signed Paperback


If you're interested in my upcoming book (available June XX, date TBD), The Mistakes That Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation, the Kindle edition is available to be pre-ordered now through Amazon!

The date is set as June 27th, but it will likely be available sooner. Amazon (and their KDP platform) make it easier to pull a date forward… and they punish you for pushing a date back.

The book will also be available at the same time in paperback and hardcover formats. I'm going to work on an audiobook version over the summer.

Amazon also makes it more difficult for me to make a paperback or hardcover book available for pre-order. But again, I think it will be on sale early- to mid-June.

New Endorsement

Here is a recent endorsement of the book from Billy Taylor:

“I can't recommend Mark Graban's book The Mistakes That Make Us enough. As someone who has made plenty of mistakes in my own life and career, I found this book to be a refreshing and honest take on the power of embracing and learning from our missteps. Mark's candid storytelling and practical advice make this a must-read for anyone looking to navigate the ups and downs of their own journey. Whether you're just starting out in your career or a seasoned veteran, the book will inspire you to see failure not as something to be feared, but as an essential part of the path to success. This is a book I'll be recommending to colleagues and friends for years to come.” — Billy Ray Taylor, CEO of LinkedXL and Author of The Winning Link
