Product Description

Review

New York Times Bestseller

“Sincero (Don't Sleep With Your Drummer) 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 online

“If touchy-feely self-help tomes make you feel, shall we say, less than inspired, this no-nonsense manifesto to awesomeness might be just what you're looking for. Filled with blunt and sassy advice, do-it-yourself exercises in personal transformation, and a whole lot of hilarity, You Are a Badass will silence your inner critic, and help you build a life worthy of the kind of Facebook news feed that others envy. Take a day off from looking for your inner goddess, and spending some time cultivating your outer badass instead.”
—Bustle.com

“I adore Jen's realistic and funny take on all matters of living an awesome life. She has such a gift for writing in a very digestible way that will appeal to everyone. If you're looking for purple unicorns and rainbows you won't find them here, what you will find are practical and easy ways to connect with your inner badass and change your life.”
—Madisyn Taylor, Co-Founder, DailyOM

“Author and success coach Jen Sincero takes the self-help book to another level with her cutthroat humor and in-your-face attitude. …The 27 thoughtful, well-written chapters are worth it—by the time you finish the book, you will understand the secrets to a life you deserve and how awesome you really are at controlling the outcome of your life. In other words, you’ll realize how much of a BAMF you really are!”
—Albuquerque’s Weekly Alibi

“Sincero has probably written the most entertaining self-help book many readers will ever get in their hands on…. Reading this book was like talking to a best friend – the one that will tell you like it is no matter the circumstances and that forces you to think outside the box.”
—The State Hornet, California State University, Sacramento campus paper

“[You Are a Badass] is (and I quote) “the self-help book for people who desperately want to improve their lives, but don’t want to get busted doing it.” You have permission to upsize your serving of awesome with this funny, fulfilling read.
—MindBodyGreen

YOU ARE A BADASS is a phenomenon!”
—Liesl Freudenstein, Boulder Book Store

This is not a business book , far from it. Anyone stating that if you repeat affirmations in this business life of ours , will bring you to another superior level , is dead wrong and living on another planet. This is a book about life coaching , stop there . She may say a few things that are correct , all of them have been written in a much better way before and elsewhere plenty of times.

Her beach dude slang and swearing may appeal to some , maybe in real life , hell I am even part and pro at this BUT , but under this written format , it should not be allowed, nor should it pretend to be something she is not. I did go see her other on line media to see follow through from what is called "iconic and leading edge " bad ass , I am left with the same loose minded interpretation. There are good tid bits here and there , but we can all do better with other authors who show more intellectual rigor and down right respect for their readers.

A let down actually , but no more than another book review I just wrote on my account.

I don't usually write review for books ( I should ) but this one needs a little love from me. This is a very very very nice book if you want to change and shift your life for the better. It will not tell you what's your problem nor how to solve everything in your life.

What it does is to show exemples and how the habits mecanic works. Find one step, repair all the routine. You smoke? Why you smoke? To feel good? Why you want to feel good? You feel depress why you feel depress? Because you don't like your job? Fine, try to remove one smoke, change it by a cucumber and say it's for your health. Etc Etc Etc.

Mind is a powerful tool that can do everything you want. But in order to change your habit your need to find your routine, why you do it and how you feel when you do it.

Regards,

Charles.

I liked the straight forward guidance with a mockery of the internal voices. Just do it already! There was a line that went something like this; What if our fav musicians, performers & writers had not done anything with their work. How sad would this be? We keep the world from our happiness as well as ourselves mired in our discomfort.

There was a little more woo than I'm comfortable with, what with affirmations and manifesting and silly stuff like that, but ultimately it's an inspiring book and now that I'm finished it, I'm going to read it again. Maybe I need a little woo in my life.

If you've been working for a while (like years) to figure out this thing called "living", you must read this book. Jen Sincero has the most incredible writing style, never mind a fantastic sense of humour! Louise Hay said once that you can hear the same message from ten people and then when you hear the same message from the 11th (Jen Sincero in my case) it all makes sense and resonates perfectly! I am beyond grateful to have found this book...thank you for writing it! Now excuse me while I go read it again!

This book was absolutely awesome. I am never really a fan of self-help books because I found them too cliche. (Do what you have to do to get where you want to get, yadi yada). However, for some reason, this was different. It did say stuff like that but in a manner that made you actually want to get up and go. It also helps that it is such a hilarious book to read. I kept cracking up even in public. It is easy to read and well written. It does contain a few curse words though (Just letting you know in case that is not your thing!)
In general, I love this book. It pushed me a little and we all need a little push here and there.

Great job, Jen Sincero!

I loveddd this book. It was so easy to read, halarious, and there were so many "ah ha" moments for me. I love Jen Sincero's writing style and especially loved the quotes she included at the beginning of each chapter. Do yourself a favour and buy a highlighter while you're at it because you will need it!

I just love this book, I have my own and I have bought it for three of my friends! Pass it on! It will make anyone feel instantly better, more inspired and motivated. We all need a little help with that and this book is a good reminder for me.
