You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life Reviews
ok this is extremely pre-mature and probably not a valid opinion but -
I picked up this book today, got through about 4 chapters and can't finish it. it feels like i'm being fed common sense information that i've already heard elsewhere. i usually don't dislike books, but i don't know what it is about this book that i just did not want to continue reading??? maybe i should give it a chance but honestly, i'd rather not lol. also, i might be an asshole for this but i can't stand the voice of this b ...more
I always try to be respectful of author’s effort & work, but here’s what bothered me about this book. This is a book written by someone who obviously has read many self-help & personal-development books and decided to write a book compiling what she’s learned from others, making it her own. I know this as someone who have read fair share of books of such genre. Yes, we are all sum of everything we’ve read, but to take other’s work and not give proper credit, seems bit of a stretch.

Page 238: Hang out with people who are kicking ass and will make you feel like a giant loser if you're not kicking ass, too. I (obviously) can't stress this enough.
NOW you tell me.
I'm not a fan of "tough love." I understand it's necessary in some situations, but for example, if I were on The Biggest Loser, there is NO WAY I would choose the personal trainer who bellows and screams at everyone as if she's lost her marbles. That sort of thing would make me angry but it wouldn't really motivate me. ...more
I don't think any book has ever annoyed me like this one and that's saying something. I pushed through only because I wanted to check it off of my TBR. And because I was listening to it and didn't have anything else to listen to, so it was convinient while cleaning. Though.. There were times when I actually sad 'SHUT UP!' out loud because she was saying so ignorant bullshits.
1.) No, I don't have a low amount of money because I am afraid of it or hate it. We're actually quite good friends.
2.) No, ...more
I think some of the ideas in here are on the right track, but her "just do it" kind of attitude is shortsighted and potentially harmful for someone who is dealing with actual mental health issues like depression and anxiety. There is a way to believe that I am a badass capable of overcoming my self-doubt and my other obstacles, but I don't think Jen Sincero is going to help me with that.
Jen Sincero is a badass who woke up from her mundane existence (THE BIG SNOOZE) and began throwing all her money, time and energy into the process of getting her true life back on track.
This book is like the cliff notes or the cheat sheet to all self help books everywhere. Which is why I loved it!! Instead of drawing out the formula to spirituality and meditation she gives you snippets of doable and less intimidating passages. This helps you take the beginning steps toward your badass- ...more
*** PSA: Vent Alert***
I didn't give this review a low rating because Sicero is a bad writer - she is perfectly effective for the task at hand and actually her appealing "ra-ra-go-get'em" voice is what drew me in to begin with. I ultimately bailed however, as I have a Big Problem with the central thesis of this book. Basically it all boils down to the theory that everyone has the power to "manifest" their own reality and if things are not working out for them it is because they are not manifestin ...more
Not good. I can sum up this book pretty quickly. If you want to make a change in your life, or if you are not happy with your life, you are the only one who can make it better. There were a few things that really bothered me. If you are depressed, you cannot simply decide that you are not going to be depressed anymore and get yourself out and have fun. It is apparent that the author has never experienced depression, or been a very sympathetic friend to anyone she knows who has been depressed. I ...more
