Adapting to Failure

This short video of Tim Harford talking about failure is a must watch.  I am admittedly a fan of the push towards embracing and admitting failure by the likes of Engineers Without Borders and Peace Dividend Trust.  What failure actually means is an entire discussion by itself.  I have not read Harford's book as of yet, but it is on my short list of books to read.

Has anyone read Adapt?  What are your thoughts on the book or on failure in general?
