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)

    "Crazy new age. "

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

    "Best book I have heard all year"

    I listen to a ton of audiobooks, on average 2 a week. This book was the best for me this year. She is hillarious, but she is also hugely inspiring. There were numerous times while listening to the book that I had some major insights into my life. I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Surprisingly enjoyable"

    Sincery reiterates a lot of the self-help genre's methods, and madness, but seemingly with a fresh voice. She's witty, self-referential, admits her failings and is very, very human. Put in her voice, many of the activities/behaviors/ideas take on a new meaning.
    Definitely enjoyed it.
    Also---really appreciated her talking about the energy and vibrations of the world within us and between us. Call it God, call it the Force; I got it.

    "Jen knocked it out of the park!"

    If you're easily offended or faint of heart, this work is not for you. But, on the other hand, if you can handle the truth, want what you want with fervor and determination and appreciate a wicked sense of humor and some sharp wit - you are going to love this book.
    Jen Sincero is super articulate and hilarious as she goes through each painful subject bringing in humor and levity to knock it outta the park.
    Right on, Jen! You are my soul sister.

    "Dribble & foul language"

    This author seems to struggle with a limited vocabulary as she un able to intellectually get her point across without using offensive foul language.
