This audiobook helped me gain my Confidence back!

This audiobook has really helped me with my self-esteem issues. I still have a long way to go, but I’m on the right track. What I really liked about it is the no-nonsense approach in dealing with confidence issues. Unlike other self-help books I’ve read, Michelle Gates has a way of delivering the facts as they are. There’s no sugar-coating and beating around the bush. This audiobook is in the Top 10 of my list!

An excellent informative guide

Suffering from low self-esteem and confidence is not nice, I have been afflicted with this on and off for many many years but this was the first book I have read (out of MANNNY!) that spoke to me on my level, felt real, felt honest, felt genuine. Good narrator too, kept it interesting. Hoping to read more by this author

Fantastic content and very plain and easy fashion to understand. Like many of these audible books, I do wish the author would narrate more.

So much better than expected

I expected to be yet another book the same as the rest but was very relieved to find this one was different as it got to the information very quickly. It was easy to understand yet a lot of advice and tips were pretty original. Great value for money...in that it is already providing a lot of value to my life.

Funny and Informative

Where does Grow Your Confidence, Assertiveness & Self-Esteem rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Grow Your Confidence, Assertiveness & Self-Esteem ranks amongst the best books that I have read in a while. It is an excellent read and I would recommend it to anyone in search of a self-help book on the subject.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Grow Your Confidence, Assertiveness & Self-Esteem?

One of the most memorable moments for me is the teaching on EQ/EI (Emotional Intelligence). For me this was quite eye-opening as the connection to emotions and confidence is so close. I enjoyed learning more about myself and how I deal with emotions both my own and those of others.

Have you listened to any of Rachel Perry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this was my first time listening to this narrator. Rachel Perry is enjoyable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, absolutely. I listened to this book in a matter of a few hours. I found myself wanting to know more.

Any additional comments?

This book is full of useful and practical information. Those that struggle with self-confidence and assertiveness are given not only information, but are challenged to participate in their own growth. This is more than a book, it is a seminar. Listening to the book felt more like being a part of a seminar geared at creating real, measurable change in participants. In addition to the information, the book is funny. The use of humor makes this book enjoyable and memorable. I did not want to stop listening. This is a must read!

So good for selfesteem

Any additional comments?

Everyone has different issues so i can only speak from my own personal experience, but my self-esteem had took a battering over the past few years for various reasons (many of which I didn’t understand until i got this book). This book is sincerely helping me overcome it all and within a week of having this i feel a stronger, more confident, calmer and untliamtely more capable person.

Entirely Relative & Highly Effective

The most relatable Self Help book I’ve ever listened to. The narrator really allows you to empower yourself through listening to this audiobook. It teaches you that a lack of confidence is actually beneficial for your success, and uses famous people to illustrate the success you can achieve in despite of your lower self-confidence.
It gives you an in depth understanding of your mind and the impact of low self-confidence before it shows you a series of strategies to improve your self-confidence. It’s full of light hearted humour, that helps make the audiobook even more relative. I like the sardonic use of humour that makes it an enjoyable listen as well as momentously beneficial.
If you’ve struggled with loss, toxic relationships, or experienced failure this book is the perfect solution to build up your self-esteem and it allows you to engage successfully with the world as well as being able to trust your own ability. It teaches that calmness is the key to mastering your new approach to self-confidence.
After I listened to this book I stopped constantly worrying every time I opened my mouth that I wouldn’t be able to say the right thing.

Any additional comments?

I can only speak from my own personal experience but I found this a great one. Narrator was a joy to listen to which can make a huge change for an audio book. Not too long, not too short. I will be giving this a second listen for sure as i feel i have learnt a lot already.

Practical and informative

I have listened to this book only once ,and I’ve realised that there is a treasure trove of information that I will need to go through and serve in order for me to benefit from this book, this is a good point as it shows that the book has plenty of value to offer it to anyone who wants to improve their self-confidence by utilising the tools discussed in this book.

Self-Esteem and Confidence improved

As my headline says, my self-esteem and confidence around other people has grown a lot since getting this book. I am more capable of handling myself in a variety of situations. I dont feel the same awkwardness or fear. This book has not overnight turned me into a super hero, but i can sincerely say it DID begin to help me almost immediately. Definitely recommended if you feel a little low in the confidence or self-esteem departments.

Robotic narration

The content was very good but it felt like it was being read by a robot, completely wrong intonation and pronounciation. I feel bad for the author that the audio book has been ruined by the narrator. I gave up after a few chapters as it was so painful.

I very much enjoyed this book!

I found this book very useful. I liked that it was a rather brief introduction to many techniques that can be beneficial to improving how you feel about yourself
