When searching for a way to describe someone who has authored 13 books, hosts a nightly PBS program and two radio shows, the word “failure” does not immediately come to mind. However, Tavis Smiley — author, television and radio host — says his failures helped him achieve his successes. His new book, “Fail Up,” was inspired by a Samuel Beckett quote: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” Smiley discussed the new book with Need to Know’s Alison Stewart.
