Meet the Author Podcast: Aaron Goldfarb, “How to Fail”


Welcome to our brand new podcast, Meet the Author, and our first interview with Aaron Goldfarb, the author of the funny, raunchy novel How to Fail: The Self-Hurt Guide. Aaron and I talked about a lot of things including his book, the idea and experience of success and failure, the process of writing, publishing and marketing in today’s fast-changing book market, and his participation in Seth Godin’s collaboration with Amazon, The Domino Project.
