Publisher's Summary

Packed with humor, inspiration, and advice, You Are a Badass is the number one New York Times best-selling self-help book that teaches you how to get better without getting busted.

In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word, helping you to:

  • Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want,
  • Create a life you totally love. And create it NOW, and
  • Make some damn money already. The kind you've never made before.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you'll 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 use The Force to kick some serious ass.

New audio edition - this audiobook is read by the author in a fresh new unabridged production and features an exclusive interview with the author. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Life changing

I needed a change in life. I’m Not so optimistic never have been. I once was an amazing mom but 4 kids later and I let the little things consume me and the joy be removed. I let the thoughts and cares of the world change who I was. This book reset me. I am and will reread this book several times. If I wasn’t a nursing student I would listen to it once a month. The audio being read by the author makes it authentic and keeps you listening. If you are struggling to find a balance in life, looking for peace, or to reset. YOU NEED THIS BOOK.

She’s a product of her generation, but stay open.

NOTE: Working through this book still and will update once I’m done. The author is corny at times and highly problematic at other times — note to all white women that mimicking Black English vernacular for comedic effect is really dumb at best and utterly racist at worst — but even if that rubs you the wrong way (as it did me) I would still encourage you to stay open. I have no doubt there are loads of other books like this one written by WOC and more aware white women/people (and we should all read those as well) but this book is still a solid entry into the self-help pantheon — despite the writer’s obvious/ more offensive flaws.

This is the answer to my prayers

Everything I’ve battled with, mostly internally, was touched on in this book. It’s very easy to listen to throughout your day, and the points the author makes aren’t never before heard of, but they’re messages you NEED to hear again. I’m not even finished with the book, but I’ve already recommended it to all of my friends, and want them to read it before they go off to college. An hour in, and I felt empowered and more prepared to tackle the rest of my adulthood. This book helped me ask the necessary questions and gave me tools to live my best unapologetic life. If you struggle with “playing the victim” and have a “woe, is me” mindset, you must listen to this!

I just didn’t like it

It was very repetitive and not very helpful and I just wasn’t very fond of the way the author read it

Nothing New

Feels like a summary of cliches and concepts previously discussed (better) in other books. Narration was grating at times.

Not meant for men

Wish I knew this is 100% geared to women before purchasing. Wouldn’t recommend if you are a male, unless you want metaphors of the birthing process and a lot of girl talk inspiration
