Publisher's Summary

It's only because they like me. I was in the right place at the right time. I just work harder than the others. I don't deserve this. It's just a matter of time before I am found out. Someone must have made a terrible mistake.

If you are a working woman, chances are this internal monologue sounds all too familiar. And you're not alone. From the high-achieving PhD candidate convinced she's been admitted to the program only because of a clerical error to the senior executive who worries others will find out she's in way over her head, a shocking number of accomplished women in all career paths and at every level feel as though they are faking it - impostors in their own lives and careers.

In The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women, Valerie Young explains what the impostor syndrome is, why fraud fears are more common in women, and how you can recognize the way it manifests in your life. With her empowering step-by-step plan, you will learn to take ownership of your success, overcome self-doubt, and banish the thought patterns that undermine your ability to feel - and act - as bright and capable as others already know you are.

    "Wonderfully insightful for both men and women!"

    Insightful in explaining both my own and other's behavior. Backed with lots of empirical research and practical concrete steps you can take to improve your own unhelpful habits.

    "Great for both genders."

    As a male, I felt this was an amazing book. I was concerned about how helpful it would be for men based on the title, but it was great. There were points where she focuses on women specifically, but even then you could apply the lessons to men.

    I will definitely reread this book as needed, probably at least once a year for the foreseeable future.
