Description : The only lie told more often than "No, that looks totally cute on you" and "I got AIDS through oral" is "It gets better." Well, a lotta times it don't. Sometimes it just sucks less. But I promise you: where there's a Willam, there's a way. But this isn't all about me (for once). It's about you and how you can SUCK LESS at a variety of things drag queens are so much better at than the average person. I've got clap backs and life hacks and tips on classing up a simple grab-and-run lifting spree to the much more dignified act of larceny. Super-important life stuff with my own special, secret fag- swag sauce. So welcome to Willam's School of Bitchcraft and Wiggotry. Class is in session. With a foreword from Neil Patrick Harris.
Description : Let's face it: there's a lot of sucky selling going on in the world today. Sellers have been trained to use artificial tactics in pursuit of the sale. Like a woman in a bar bracing for another cheesy, tired pickup line, customers are now warier than ever. In ''Love and Selling,'' Dan Smaida uses the Lens of Love to call out all those cheesy, cringe-worthy 'tactics' and offer more authentic alternatives. The book uses the simple lessons we all understand about love and relationships to transform the way we think about selling. No 'sales processes,' no seller-centric models, just tried-and-true behaviors that work in business . . . and in love. When sellers ditch the tricks and focus on developing true relationships, they create real partnerships with customers, enjoy their jobs more, and see better results.
Description : Can't take the first step in becoming an author? Afraid you'll suck at writing? Have you ever... Heard that little voice inside your head, whispering that your writing sucked? Simply felt too terrified to start writing? Had the wind knocked out of your sails-been critiqued by a "well-meaning" person and - decided that they were right and gave up? Read and read motivational books on writing only to end up more fearful afterward? Compared yourself to "successful" writers and decided that you'll never measure up? If so, congratulations! You're a writer! And I'll tell you what no other motivational mushery book about becoming an author will tell you-in the beginning... We all sucked when we first started. I'll tell you a little secret. All those authors you want to be just like? The "Stephen Kings" and the "Nora Roberts" the... The list of successful entrepreneur authors is endless. But you know what? When they started, the first sentence each one of those authors you want to be wrote ... sucked. The only difference between them and you? The successful authors overcame their fear of writing! I used to be a yearning and scared-to-death wannabe author. I'm assuming that if you're reading the book description of a book called Authorphobia, chances are high you're looking for a little bit of writer inspiration and motivation like I was-you may be having a little fear of failure about becoming a writer. But all the motivational "la la" books never spoke to my writing soul ... so I'm doing what I always do, writing a book to fill that void. The best way to overcome your fear of writing? Let me suggest that before you read another tired book that starts out with "FEAR is just False Expectations Appearing Real," you embrace the one thing that will crush your writer fear faster than anything I know-humor. Learning to Laugh Fear in the Face My goal with this book was to get down and dirty with your fears and expose the naked truth of them-show them for what they are. Common, communicable if you're not careful, controllable, and ultimately conquerable using the one thing that human beings have relied to survive dark nights in the forest of our irrational fears. Nervous, naughty, sometimes a little nasty, and necessarily sarcastic wit. This is not your grandma's writing inspiration book. At the publication of this book, there are at least a dozen "Author quote, 'authorpreneur', get over your fear, there-there Johnny or Sally, everything will be okay, hand-holding" books you could read that'll have you convinced in no time that all this author stuff is easy-peasy lemon squeezy. This ... is not one of those books. Are you ready for some reality? This book will: Help you laugh at your fear of the word "suck." Introduce you to the "Goldberg the Goalie" technique for fear-busting. Give you some of the best old-dead-author quotes you'll ever read. Show you tons of "suck-busters" to help you start writing. Poke fun at just about every sacred cow of writing I could think of. And best of all-reveal my super-secret "fear of bad reviewers" cure-all. (hint: it involves chicken blood) Sometimes an ice-cold bucket of sarcastic suck smackdown is just what the doctor ordered to shock you out of a drunken stupor of fear. Luckily, this bucket of blood of a book is so full of suck-busting smackdown that you may never be afraid to write again.

You have nothing to lose, but your fear of sucking writing.
Description : Discover how the freedom of sucking at something can help you build resilience, embrace imperfection, and find joy in the pursuit rather than the goal. What if the secret to resilience and joy is the one thing we’ve been taught to avoid? When was the last time you tried something new? Something that won’t make you more productive, make you more money, or check anything off your to-do list? Something you’re really, really bad at, but that brought you joy? Odds are, not recently. As a sh*tty surfer and all-around-imperfect human Karen Rinaldi explains in this eye-opening book, we live in a time of aspirational psychoses. We humblebrag about how hard we work and we prioritize productivity over play. Even kids don’t play for the sake of playing anymore: they’re building blocks to build the ideal college application. But we’re all being had. We’re told to be the best or nothing at all. We’re trapped in an epic and farcical quest for perfection. We judge others on stuff we can’t even begin to master, and it’s all making us more anxious and depressed than ever. Worse, we’re not improving on what really matters. This book provides the antidote. (It’s Great to) Suck at Something reveals that the key to a richer, more fulfilling life is finding something to suck at. Drawing on her personal experience sucking at surfing (a sport she’s dedicated nearly two decades of her life to doing without ever coming close to getting good at it) along with philosophy, literature, and the latest science, Rinaldi explores sucking as a lost art we must reclaim for our health and our sanity and helps us find the way to our own riotous suck-ability. She draws from sources as diverse as Anthony Bourdain and surfing luminary Jaimal Yogis, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Jean-Paul Sartre, among many others, and explains the marvelous things that happen to our mammalian brains when we try something new, all to discover what she’s learned firsthand: it is great to suck at something. Sucking at something rewires our brain in positive ways, helps us cultivate grit, and inspires us to find joy in the process, without obsessing about the destination. Ultimately, it gives you freedom: the freedom to suck without caring is revelatory. Coupling honest, hilarious storytelling with unexpected insights, (It’s Great to) Suck at Something is an invitation to embrace our shortcomings as the very best of who we are and to open ourselves up to adventure, where we may not find what we thought we were looking for, but something way more important.
