As a cop, Secret Service agent, politician, television show host, and podcaster, Dan Bongino has failed his way through a lot of high-profile jobs. In fact, he believes that learning from those failures is what gave his career real momentum. His new memoir explores the alchemy of transforming mistakes into gold.

In other words, it’s crucial to pass that knowledge onto others.
