Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Personal Development, 2014

Best-selling 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.

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)

    "Badass = BS, but I love it."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listened to the audio sample and was immediately put on alert because of the narrators raspy gravelly voice (sorry Jen) - you can judge for yourself in the short audio clip - however, something about the content in the clip hooked me and I took the plunge. I connect with Jen - she strikes me as someone that I would want to spend time with - I also connect with the content and I am a believer in aligning thoughts with the harmony of the universe. Call it what you will, wishing, praying, 'asking and you shall be receiving' -<br/><br/>Amazing things have come my way when I truly believed that they were coming my way - and that is the essence of what Jen is suggesting - in ancient times people went to sites (churches synagogs etc..) to 'pray' - and throughout all of history there are examples of humans trying to connect to the 'Grand PooBah' - and Jen puts a modern spin on the whole idea - plus she is so funny - I am convinced she must be a riot to be with - the book only gets the 3 stars because the humor only translates so/so in this delivery - <br/><br/>I do recommend the book - it was well worth the time spent listening - if refined it could be 4 or 5 stars -

    "Inspiring"

    I found this book so inspirational. Sincero has made me think about a lot of things in my life and how I think and act. I will be taking her tips and advice to heart and change the current course of my life and manifest the life I want to lead.

    "Not sure why I resisted reading this book!"

    I bought the hard copy of this book a couple years ago and found it difficult to get into primarily because I just couldn't relate to the writer's voice. when I signed up for Audible I figured this was the perfect book to try for free because I had heard such good things about it. it was fantastic in every way! and I would strongly encourage anyone who needs a wake-up call to listen.

    "Jen.Sincero.IS.a.Badass!"

    Absolutely loved this book! Jen has an uncanny ability to see the real truths of what all those self help gurus are trying to teach, and explain them in a straightforward, clear, effective manner. She's funny as hell, too! If you're not a prude about hearing profanities spoken, you will really enjoy her stories and delivery.

    "So Refreshing, Funny and Relatable!"
    Any additional comments?

    Loved Jen's story telling, shoot from the hip style that tells it like it is. I've taken many of the concepts and thought processes and applied them in my life and always think back to this book as I navigate life's BS!!

    "WOW! Jen Sincero is a BADASS!!!"

    Of all the self-help and spiritual books I have read, this put all the ideas together in a most down-to-earth and sensible way. She has cleaned the webs out of my head, called me on my procrastination /excuses and lit a fire under my ass! I am so inspired to take that leap of faith that I've been wanting to do for so long but have not done because of my own illusions and the discouragement of those around me. She has reaffirmed so many gut instincts inside me and bolstered my confidence / self-worth. From the bottom of my heart - THANK YOU JEN SINCERO!!!!!! This book is a life-changer for me.

    "Inspiring Coach"

    Like all books of this genre, they are meant to inspire you to be a virtuous creative person in charge of your life. This one is direct and the author is intelligent with many anecdotes from her life and world history. I don't think she had a Steve Jobs reference which I appreciated as I am tired of Jobs being the example in these books, there are more interesting people out there.
    The author is funny and a good narrator.
