Publisher's Summary

I am addicted to positivity. I am addicted to positivity. I am addicted to positivity.

I care more about feeling great than being great.

I am NOT THAT GREAT.

The self-help industry tells you that if you're positive, if you put your best foot forward, and if you just believe in yourself that you will find happiness. Let's be real. You can read all the inspirational quotes you want. You can spend your days giving yourself affirmations in your heart-shaped mirror and trying to learn to love yourself. You can say your mantra over and over again while sitting cross-legged on a yoga mat in a Whole Foods parking lot. But the truth is, you're not a badass, and you still don't have the life you want. That's where You're Not That Great (but neither is anyone else) comes in. This book teaches you how to harness all the negativity in the world and use it to improve your life, taking everyday feelings like self-loathing, regret, and shame and making them work for you. Positive thinking is for assholes. Negative thinking is for winners.

Ironically, so great!

This book, “counter-intuitively”, to the title was one of the most motivating books I have read/listened to in a long time. It induced a paradigm shift that I plan to embrace.

Not your typical self help book

For a self help junkie like myself this book was the opposite of everything I had read before. I was shocked and had to laugh at some of the things in this book and wonder wow maybe I have been thinking wrong this entire time. Keep am open mind and you will love this book.

Love the point of view!

What did you love best about You're Not That Great?

I loved that the writer was honest and gave a completely different perspective than I am used to hearing.

Good message but lacking explicit strategies

This book provides a good description of a new way of thinking, why the old way is not helping you achieve your goals, and why this new way is better. But it lacks explanation of how this really works. Other than simply mind over matter, it does not offer many ideas. You are on your own to figure out how you will take this new information and apply it to your life. Not a bad thing as we are all different and will interpret this differently, just an observation.
