Why most of us have such negative feelings about wrongness, and how that attitude affects the way we educate our kids, run our companies, and resolve our conflicts - whether with family members, coworkers, neighbors, or nations
How embracing error is, paradoxically, the best way to prevent mistakes - including in high-stakes domains where errors can be financially, materially, emotionally or physically costly
Why error is such a crucial engine of innovation, and how accepting and understanding our fallibility can make us more creative, more empathetic, and more forgiving, toward ourselves as well as toward other people
