Secrets To Resilience
What if the secret to resilience and joy is the one thing we’ve been taught to avoid? As a sh*tty surfer and all-around-imperfect human Karen Rinaldi explains that we live in a time of aspirational psychoses. We humblebrag about how hard we work and we prioritize productivity over play. Drawing on her personal experience sucking at surfing 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. Rinaldi has worked in the publishing industry for over two decades, and in 2012, founded the imprint Harper Wave at HarperCollins. She’s been published in The NY Times, Oprah.com, Time, LitHub and more.
