Emily V Gordon has written a book, and it’s time to celebrate it!
Have you ever wondered what the best version of yourself would be? Have you wondered whose permission you’d need to be the best version of yourself? Well wonder no more – Super You is a funny, relatable self improvement guide to help you release your inner superhero!
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.
You’ll see stand-up, you’ll hear comedians talk about the long road to becoming the best version of themselves, you’ll make anonymous confessions!
Afterward you can buy the book, have it signed by Emily, and take home a free poster of an illustration from Super You: Release Your Inner Superhero!
