OCLC's CEO Writes Book on Leadership and Success

OCLC’s president and CEO, Skip Prichard, became a bestselling author with the release of his first book, The Book of Mistakes: 9 Secrets to Creating a Successful Future. It is number 19 on Publishers Weekly’s National Hardcover Non-Fiction Bestsellers List. According to OCLC, “the book is a fast-paced and instructive story of one man’s transformation—from unhappy and stymied to happy and fulfilled—that readers of all ages and job levels can learn from.” Prichard maintains the Leadership Insights blog, on which he conducts interviews to learn about leadership and success, and the book is an extension of that research.

“And although the mistakes and principles discussed in the book are backed by research, it is skillfully written as a fictional story rather than a book of research,” OCLC writes. Prichard says, “I wanted to write something that you could read in one sitting and enjoy a fictional escape, but walk away with ideas that can change your future. There’s hidden power in a good story.”
