If a book about failures doesn't sell is it a success?
The perfect roundabout question! Consider this, the lack of sales would be in line with the tone of the book, correct? Such a writing could be spun in the style accordingly, but in a roundabout way, would mass sales mark it as a failure? I can equate it to a man I work with, constantly ridiculing himself to get a laugh from coworkers. On the one hand the people who correct him and give him compliments to rebuke his criticisms of himself only serve to uplift the man while the ones who laugh and contribute to his attrition feel sorry and pity the fool, allowing him to systematically infiltrate their sensitivities. Genius, I say! In any light, a book like this wins...
Nicely done, JulianaDragoness, and funny too. I am going to say "yes," it is a success for the author, because he or she, I'm sure, has learned a lot from writing it. Success or failure is not always determined by sales or in financial terms. Many inventors have failed many times before finally creating what they were attempting to create. Failure can be seen as the road to success, even for a book about failures that doesn't sell. It was written and put on the market, so it represents a learning experience. Maybe once it is improved, or the marketing of it is improved, it will become a best seller. Great question.
Reminds me of a Steven Wright joke.
Apparently this answer was too short. Words words words.
