Summary

We all obsess about worrying less, but worrying can actually be good for you. Similarly, we strive to be proactive and fast - but aren't there hidden benefits to procrastinating? The last thing a parent is meant to do is neglect their offspring, but children do amazing things when you just leave them alone. And at work we spend hours frantically brainstorming, but isn't there a benefit to just lazily staring out of the window? 

Everything Bad Is Good for You is a new series of short audiobooks dedicated to the much-maligned personality traits that we should actually be promoting. Just as Susan Cain's Quiet showed that introversion is actually a superpower and Sarah Knight made us all realise that not giving a f--k can actually improve our lives, these surprising and entertaining audiobooks will celebrate our perceived flaws - and show why embracing rather than suppressing them can be the difference between failure and success.

Life-changing listen

This is a wonderful little audiobook. Funny, wise, and bracingly iconoclastic. Can't wait to listen to it again and then again at least once a year.
