Taking seriously the idea that baseball is a study in failure--a very successful batter manages a hit only three of every ten attempts--Mark Kingwell explores ways in which the game teaches us lessons on fragility, contingency, and community. Weaving elements… of memoir, philosophical reflection, sports writing, and humour, "Fail Better" serves as an unofficial follow-up to "Catch and Release: Trout Fishing and the Meaning of Life", which won over readers by offering an intelligent but accessible look into the deep waters of angling. 2017.
