About the eBook

'A lovely read' - Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2

Failure is your friend, your teacher, your passport to success - life lessons from one of the UK's most esteemed psychiatrists.

Dr Tim Cantopher spent four decades helping people get better - get better psychologically, emotionally, mentally. He has guided hundreds of men and women through anxiety, depression, addiction and other mental health issues. In The Power of Failure, he will share with you some of the most powerful lessons learned from his life in the psychiatrist's chair, with the aim of helping you get more joy from your life, to become more resilient and to achieve more by no longer fearing failure.

Navigating the pitfalls of vulnerability and perfectionism, Dr Cantopher will show you how optimism and resilience can change the outcome of challenging events, and how to find lasting happiness that won't be derailed by negative emotions such as shame or fear. As an expert on toxic and dysfunctional relationships, he will give strategies for surviving narcissistic or destructive behaviours in your family or friends, and explain the benefits of kindness, consistency, persistence and pacing.

Bringing together a lifetime's work in psychiatry with unparalleled expertise and clinical insight, this new book from the bestselling author of Depressive Illness: The Curse of the Strong has the power to change your life in the same way that Dr Cantopher has changed the lives of the many hundreds of people who have sought his help over the years.
