With arresting humor, wit, and wisdom, this counterintuitive call to action gives you freedom from perfection-encouraging you to embrace your shortcomings-a concept that is desperately needed in today's social-media-crazed, image-obsessed society.Karen Rinaldi has spent the past sixteen years dedicating her life to surfing: she surfs eight months out of the year, chose a career path to accommodate it, risked hard-earned money to do it, and drags her family all over the world in search of waves.But this is not a book about surfing. It's a book about sucking.Because Karen absolutely sucks at surfing. As she explains in this compelling book, not only is it okay to suck at something, but there's a lot to learn from doing something that you truly suck at.From flawless social media feeds to airbrushed celebrities who are seemingly perfect, society constantly tells us that we're falling short in countless ways and we feel terrible about it. But with this this funny, frank, and witty book, Karen explains the many positive results of sucking at something. Inspired by her personal story, and drawing from the teachings of great philosophers, leading psychologists, and bestselling authors, Rinaldi explains how sucking at something, truly sucking at something, can help you learn to live in the moment, confront and shed doubt, develop deeper self-love, and so much more.It's Great to Suck at Something is a much-needed reminder that we don't need to be perfect all the time, that there's more to life than our achievements, and that sometimes we need to pursue something we're very bad at, in order to truly better ourselves.
