A Review of Jen Sincero's book, You are a Badass


They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but with a title like You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero, I couldn't resist pronouncing it as my kind of book before I had even read a single sentence.

I read a lot of spiritual and self help books, enjoying the different ways authors basically say the same thing. I agree with the premise that our thoughts form our perceptions which in turn form our reality. If you have negative thoughts, you subconsciously call negative people and situations into your life. Some people call this the Law of Attraction.

While Jen Sincero doesn't really break any new ground in You are a Badass, she provides something that is typically lacking in self-help books: humor. Since I truly believe laughter is the best medicine, this book really worked for me.

One of the other things that Sincero does is expel the myth that money is bad and everyone who want a lot of it is greedy. We live in an abundant world so feeling guilty about money doesn't do anything but make us miserly miserable.

If you're in the mood for a hip, funny and informative read, I'd recommend You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. To learn more about the author, visit her website: http://www.jensincero.com
