Book Nook: Life Lessons from a Total Failure

Can you learn from someone else's mistakes? That's the idea behind a book I got to review, Life Lessons from a Total Failure. M.J. Dougherty has learned to embrace what makes one unique. In the author's words:

I can't offer you the right answers. And even if I could, what's right for me might not be ideal for you. What I can promise you is unfettered candor. From leaving home as a teenager to living and working abroad, from starting my own small business to knowing when it was time to accept defeat, from chasing my dreams to relishing life's challenges. 
I have embraced what makes me unique. And I hope my story inspires you to do the same.

It's a refreshingly honest book, encouraging readers to be the best they can be, with a healthy sense of contentment and peace of mind. It's well-written, interesting, and relatable - everyone has made mistakes, and everyone can stand to learn from them. A percentage of every sale is donated to The Trevor Project, a crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth.
