How They Choked: Failures, Flops, and Flaws of the Awfully Famous by Georgia Bragg
Reviewed By: A.T.
Georgia Bragg is back and her stories are better, or should I worse, than ever! Some of the famous people you will recognize, some you may not, but all the stories are about blunders and mistakes that these people made, and in some cases what made these people famous! Van Gogh, Amelia Earhart, and Isaac Newton are just a few of the famous people that you may not realize made some pretty big and pretty costly mistakes in their lives. So if you want to learn about some pretty big mistakes, and maybe feel better about a few small mistakes you have made, then I highly recommend you check out this book ASAP! Who knows, maybe not reading it might be the biggest mistake you ever make!
Why I Picked it Up: I loved her other book "How They Croaked" so I was hoping this one would be just as fascinating.
Why I Finished It: Had to know how each famous person failed!
I’d Give this Book To: Anyone who likes to read about history. Especially the good stuff that they leave out of boring textbooks!
