Falling Uphill

These are stories about the writing of Scott’s best-selling and award-winning book — Falling Uphill. It was an amazing adventure all by itself. Falling Uphill is a metaphor for happy accidents or learning from mistakes and how often we are actually better off for our mistakes. It was the philosophy of life Scott learned while traveling around the world on a bicycle.
