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 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word.

The book fell flat for me as it seemed as though the author was simply relaying stories and anecdotes she had collected from other sources. It was almost as though I was in a conversation with a marginally informed friend covering a host of topics but with no ability to bore down into meaningful detail on any one subject. Also a little too many F-bombs that served no real purpose other than as an attempt to convey edginess?
