Super You: Release Your Inner Superhero by Emily V. Gordon

Into the Wild

Super You: Release Your Inner Superhero Read Online Free - Superheroes don’t start from glorious beginnings. Their origins are almost always marked by traumatic events that leave them helpless and scared. Batman witnessed his parents’ murder. Superman was sent away from his dying planet with no one to guide him as he grew up. Orphaned Catwoman was forced to steal food to survive on the streets of Gotham.

What makes these superheroes super is their determination to not be defined by helplessness. They embrace their origins, their flaws, and their mistakes, and strive every day to become the best versions of themselves – for the benefit of themselves and others.

Super You is a fun, friendly, and unabashedly geeky guide to becoming the superhero of your own extraordinary life. Author Emily Gordon examines comic book tropes to find lessons that anyone can apply toward overcoming tragic events and adversity in their own lives. With activities in every chapter to help identify each person’s superpowers, special tools, personal kryptonite – and weapons against it – Super You is the perfect sidekick for every growing hero, empowering everyday people to transform into the most kick-ass versions of themselves.

Best self-help book I've ever read! I'd give it ten stars if I could. <3

I mean what's not to love about Emily V. Gordon, first of all?! I really enjoyed this book and appreciated the push to become a super "me." I already felt pretty super, but there were still "aha moments" and chapters that gave me the opportunity to sit down and figure out stuff I needed to work o...

This book is an incredibly powerful read. Emily Gordon walks a fine line of personalizing the stories so they resonate, but always keeping the focus on the reader's process and the reader's reflection on the material. There's a healthy amount of individuality to her writing and absolutely no ego....

I don't feel comfortable giving this book a certain number of stars because it's really about what you put into it. The author, Emily Gordon, a former therapist-turned-comedy-show-host, uses the analogy of making yourself an everyday superhero into a version of self-help. It's clever, if sometime...

(3.5/5) I'll be straightforward by saying that I went into this book intending to read it as just a book, not as a self-help guide (my bad). Still, from what I read, Gordon makes some great suggestions on how to improve your daily life, while appropriately peppering it with various geek reference...

Apparently I'm on a self-help kick this week, thanks to my automatic loans coming off of my holds list. This one was Super Cute. I love Emily (The Big Sick fans - she's that Emily) and loved spending time with her voice through this audiobook. Again, nothing truly revolutionary for a longtime sel...

I will be recommending this book to everyone I know, and coming back to it plenty myself!

I was skeptical of the super hero analogy of this book as I'm not really into super heroes, and I still think it was an unnecessary aspect of what is a general "self-actualization" / self-esteem / motivation / kick in the pants type of book. Either way, the book itself was quick, snappy, and had...

finally finished this! i'm a terribly distractible person, need to work on that. anyway, this was good, it'll make me think about the way i talk to myself and other people before i get all snarled up in social weirdness or spiralling self-talk. i know all the basics of this already but it's good...

This one's on me, I didn't really look at what the book was before I picked it up, I just like the author from her TV stuff and hearing her on podcasts. It's basically that 'Adulting' book but with more nerd references.
