Publisher's Summary

You Are a Badass is the self-help audiobook for people who desperately want to improve their lives but don't want to get busted doing it.

In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, best-selling author and world-travelling success coach Jen Sincero serves up 27 bite-size 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 behaviours that stop you from getting what you want.
  • Create a life you totally love. And create it now.
  • 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.

Super basic

Important: 1. If you've already read/listened some books about self-help, this is not for you. This is super basic, and you'll be wasting your money/credits on this.
2. If you don't like this california "gal" way of speaking ("you knoooow?", "I mean, likeeee", "So I was like ahhh, and he was likeee yuck") don't waste your money/credits on this.
The combination of these two things made it a really bad experience for me. Still, I made it through to give a complete review: may work for you if this is your first contact with self-help, maybe if it's the second, after "The monk who sold his Ferrari" and other super basic stuff. It is topical, almost childish, "Universe will give you what you want" kind of thing. If you're into that, go ahead. If not, run.

Awesome book!

Loved it, thank you! I listened to this book twice (just in case I missed something the first time), and got psyched up every time I had a listen session. Have already started implementing some of the techniques, and yay! Success.

More tools for the toolkit.

This is a great book because it covers a wide spectrum of areas that people can use to hold themselves back in life. Ultimately if you want to change, then you need to do something about it. So no surprise the book isn’t like a too good to be true piece of exercise equipment that professes to guarantee you can lose weight while sitting down. No, instead you have to do something for yourself and this book will give you excellent tools to do that.

It's Good

I love it! It's motivating and practical. Drives an age old message of success home while speaking to a younger crowd.

Good Book

I was a bit put of buying this book because of its brash title. I only bought it because it was recommend to me. However, I was pleasantly suprised at how much I enjoyed it. It gives good advice how to be the person you want to be. It is well worth listening to.

Absolutely spot on!

I have listened to many, many self help audios, read many books and learned a lot. My experience of books by women are they are too soft and floaty and I struggle to relate. However, this lady is amazing. Totally to the point, feisty, funny and most of all manages to blend a go getting, no nonsense attitude with a spiritual approach to life and using the law of Attraction.

It's all about clarity, going after what you want, being truthful with yourself and acting with integrity. Making changes we know we need to make and with Bad Ass attitude. Loved it. Oh and loving yourself and your life. I am going straight into my second listening now, this time with pen ready to list out my action points.

Think I've heard all this before....

This is pretty much lessons from many other self help books. If you've read the secret, the chimp paradox or the happiness advantage don't bother with this. If you've not read them, buy them instead!

Same old stuff nothing new

Besides the clever title was a bit underwhelmed by this book. Don't think it offered anything new. Believe in yourself, the universe, stop making excuses and take action that about sums up the book. To me it was just another law of attraction book. Having said all that I liked some of the content and this book would be more suited to those just beginning a journey of self discovery. But would make a great read for first timers

American Clap Trap

Sorry I didn't like this book and whether I judged it harshly I don't know but I only listened to the first 3 chapters and that was enough the narrators voice is irritating to say the least and the story is full of Americanisms it isn't believable and it didn't help me unlike other self help books I've read .
I don't know why it has such good reviews and only bought it on the strength of that.

Thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is striving to be all they can be.
Loved it so much, that I have just purchased 2 hard copies - one for myself and I know the universe will bring along someone who also needs to read it.

Now off to listen to it again 🙌🏽

Life changing.

life changing is a perfect summary. I purchased the book and listened to it in 3 days, driving to and from work and while sitting at home working on anything else. very inspirational and honestly gave me a new mindset on life. I then waited a day or two and listened to it again. brilliant.

Self help for beginners

Great book, ideal for anyone who might be sceptical of the personal development genre. Bite sized pieces of information are presented in a way that isn't 'preach-y'

Nothing new

I'm guessing this book might be enjoyed by those in their early 20s. For me it was a bit of fun but really nothing new at all. I've heard pretty much most of the advice elsewhere. Also it seems to just be all thrown in together. No practical explanation on how to implement it... unless she does so at the very end. To be honest I didn't make it to the last couple of chapters. Lost interest. Jen does narrate well though if you are into her style of writing.

best audio I've ever heard.<br />

Yes it's true I loved this book - illuminating, passionate and most of all humorous. Very easy to listen to - a captivating voice and message. Not ashamed to admit she made me cry - she really made me believe how awesome I am - probably for the 1st time in my life. Listen to it - it will be one of the most moving and enjoyable things you may ever do. Can't thank this 'bitch' enough.
