From his celebrated conversations with world figures to his work to
inspire the next generation of leaders as a broadcaster, author, publisher,
advocate and philanthropist, Tavis Smiley continues to be a leading voice
for change. He is currently the host of his late-night television talk show
on PBS as well as the host of a couple of radio programs syndicated by
Public Radio International: "The Tavis Smiley Show" and "Smiley and West"
alongside Dr. Cornel West.
This year, Tavis is celebrating his 20th year in broadcasting, and in conjunction with that anniversary he's just published, "FAIL UP: 20 Lessons on Building Success from Failure." In this revealing memoir, he recounts 20 instances of perceived "failures" which were, in fact, valuable "lessons" that shaped the principles and practices he employs every day.
