Product description


A straight-talking guide that encourages you to find your weaknesses, regrets and your f*ck-ups in order to live a better life - GQ Australia

A much-needed twist on the self-help novel, You're Not That Great cuts through the mindlessly positive-thinking bollocks that seeps out of most motivational books, and teaches you how to use the negativity in the world and your life to drive yourself forward. After all, if the world were made up of motivational speakers, we'd have gotten a lot more done by now. - GQ Australia

Elan Gale, the author, may be great at his job, but he writes a pretty mean self-help book, too. Literally... Good for haters and glass-half-fullers alike. - ELLE Magazine

it'll take all your preconceived notions of "positive thinking" and "positive affirmations" and "everything happens for a reason" and flip them on their motherflippin' heads - MAMAMIA

energetic, honest, refreshing and also plain funny - POPSUGAR

Gale is a straighter talker with a penchant for comedy, but says he's a realist who wants to call life for what it is. He's a punk who uses the written word and if Jean Paul Sartre were alive, he'd probably invite Gale to hang at the Sorbonne to critique life and all its miseries. - Executive Style

From the Publisher

ELAN GALE is living proof that if you hate yourself enough you can accomplish anything. It was his own self-loathing, combined with his anger over the terrifying flood of inspirational messages that were giving people all over the world false hope, that propelled him to write YOU'RE NOT THAT GREAT (BUT NEITHER IS ANYONE ELSE). Elan has spent the last eight years working as an executive producer on the wildly successful BACHELOR TV franchise and so, as you can imagine, he has a rather unique knowledge of human nature. Some famous fans of his include Harry Styles, Ariana Grande and Jason Biggs.
