Audie Award Winner, Personal Development, 2014
Bestselling author, speaker, and world-traveling success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver in You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero serves up twenty-seven bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word.
Via chapters such as "Your Brain Is Your Bitch," "Fear Is for Suckers," and "My Subconscious Made Me Do It," Sincero takes you on a wild joy ride to your own transformation, helping you create the money, relationships, career, and general all-around awesomeness you so desire. And should you be one of those people who dreads getting busted with a self-help book in your hands, fear not.
Sincero, a former skeptic herself, delivers the goods minus the New Age cheese, giving even the snarkiest of poo-pooers exactly what they need to get out of their ruts and start kicking some ass. By the end of You are a Badass, you will understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love, and how to start living the kind of life you used to be jealous of.

"Sincero brings a fun, feminine verve to now well-tread self-help tropes... The tone is far more feisty than academic, and there's humor on every page, all of which is exactly what her intended audience most needs." (Publishers Weekly)
Yes, as a matter of fact, I bought the book, so I could highlight all of the useful shit!
I enjoyed all of it.
I thought it was a great book. I'm not sure I agree with all of it, but most of it seemed awesome to me. She's my new hero
badass book! loved it and will listen again. a down to earth tale on how to make yourself feel alive, regardless of where you are in life. a road map to "breathing in the now"
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
This audiobook basically boils down to telling you that you are good enough to get what you want, to focus on the positivity, not to worry about what others think, and to believe that nothing is impossible, because of the law of attraction.
The enthusiastic performance is what encouraged me to finish the book. Jen Sincero seems to truly want to make the listener go out there and do something. If you want a refresher book about how to pursue your dreams, this is it.
I have already listened to this book two days in a row, I absolutely love it and plan to listen again. It gives you a step by step plan on manifesting your best life!
The what & the how to align physical & spiritual action steps.
This is the first time I've listened to Jen Sincero, now I'm hooked! Loved her performance!
Meditating for manifestation. Aligning myself up with what I really want, so that I can be, do , and have it!
I want more of Jen!! Looking forward to hearing more of her work. Excellent!
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I'm embarrassed to write this review because it means I actually purchased this book. The whole thing was utter nonsense and the author/narrator was annoying at best. You are better off getting daily affirmations from Stuart Smalley. Save your money on this one.
Great material in here, but what I really loved was that the author read it and put all the inflection and hilarity of the written word into audio. I think this is the best example of all the great things an audiobook can be.
I love the honesty and great straightforward advice. I have been a believer ins luck and positivity and also visualizing good parking spots for a long time. Jen Sincero gives this all a name. I already have taken steps to stick up for myself and without apology or fear. Well, a little fear, but no apology. I'm going to listen one more time now, in case I missed something.
Good advice, loved how it was actually written, I probably would have not read it the way it was intended. I found myself even laughing in certain parts because either I had done the same foolish mistakes or because I could picture whatever she was illustrating. Must read!
