Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

    "Hokum"

    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.

    "Crazy new age. "

    Absolutely silliness resting on some good already covered by others. I only managed to hear through a quarter of it.

    Story
    "Heard it all before"

    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.

    Story
    "Scientology Hocus Pocus"
    What would have made You are a Badass better?

    This book would have been improved if it's self-help strategy wasn't solely based on religious hogwash.


    Has You are a Badass turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely.


    What about Jen Sincero’s performance did you like?

    She has a soothing and pleasant voice, too bad the things she says are so idiotic.


    What character would you cut from You are a Badass?

    This doesn't have characters in that sense.


    Any additional comments?

    If I had known this was a book about scientology, I wouldn't have bought it. If I wanted to read about scientology, I would've looked up scientology. Do not try to pass off your book as having real advice on how to improve your life, when everything revolves around a belief in Source Energy and putting out high vibrations because that somehow makes the universe give you good stuff. Total BS, and I don't mean big snooze.

    I'm going to go back to reading Christopher Hitchens, at least his non-fiction books are actually non-fiction. I want my $2 back.

    "amazing stuff"

    I appreciated her authenticity and humor. Sending up a request to the universe to meet her one day to spend a moment of unabashed, celebratort badassedness together.

    "Life changing . "

    I am not usually a fan of life coaches but I loved Jen. I listen to this book over and over to remind myself of where I want to go. The chapters seem to fly by. I loved it and I think everyone should listen to it.

    "This book made me a better person."

    The title grabbed my attention at a boutique by the beach a couple of years ago. I picked it up and scanning through it. Purchased the audible and I thought that it was 3X better.. Maybe timing and a combination of Jen's likeable personality. Why not enjoy life to the fullest.. So many things that we are doing that self-sabotage are happiness and success. This helped to create more awareness.
