For those of you who don’t know, I have started a book review column in The Hull Hub which is a local paperzine FREE to pick up or read online. I thought I should also continue to share my reviews with you, I am sure you will like to see what I am reading from time to time. 

In January I shared my review of Jen Sincero’s book How to be a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. I definitely needed to read this book and I am so glad I did, I have it as a point of reference to look back on as well. 

 

Blurb:

In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bitesized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice and easy exercises, 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.

My Review:

5 stars.

Create a life you love via hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word- Jen Sincero describes her best selling book. 

I have heard everyone boasting about this book and before long I realised I HAD to read it. I kept seeing it pop up in posts on social media, everyone talking about how its changed aspects of their lives. I have to admit that I have read a few self-help books before and I so I was willing to see if it offered anything different. Reading ‘You are a Badass’ was going to be interesting especially as I had developed high hopes. 

Jen Sincero has been clever with her chapters and the way she has chunked her message out for people to read in bitesized pieces. I found the exercises very useful and it soon became a book that I talked about at home and with friends. It was an easy read with thought provoking material, something I will keep to refer to and pick up when necessary. It certainly gave me a different outlook on certain aspects of my life and it didn’t take long for me to realise why everyone was boasting about it. 

It was different from the rest and I think it may have been down to the humour and the metaphors woven in. 

This book is a perfect read to give 2019 that positive and motivational start.
