Annotation 1 Offers a blunt and irreverent guide to achieving the money, relationships, career, and happiness that one desires through recognizing and doing away with self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors.

Annotation 2 Bestselling author, speaker, and world-traveling success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver in You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life. In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero serves up twenty-seven bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word. Via chapters such as "Your Brain Is Your Bitch," "Fear Is for Suckers" and "My Subconscious Made Me Do It," Sincero takes you on a wild joy ride to your own transformation, helping you create the money, relationships, career, and general all-around awesomeness you so desire. And should you be one of those people who dreads getting busted with a self-help book in your hands, fear not. Sincero, a former skeptic herself, delivers the goods minus the New Age cheese, giving even the snarkiest of poo-pooers exactly what they need to get out of their ruts and start kicking some ass.By the end of You Are a Badass, you will 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 start living the kind of life you used to be jealous of.

Annotation 3 In this witty, refreshingly blunt guide, bestselling author Jen Sincero helps listeners to embrace their inner badass and achieve success in all areas of life.

AudioFile Reviews 2013 November
Life coach and author Jen Sincero throws a lot of passion into her reading of her spunky advice on how to stop holding yourself back from the life you deserve. She sounds fresh and totally spontaneous--part true believer, part stoner/comedian, part tough-love coach--as she covers familiar personal growth topics like the law of attraction, getting out of ruts, relationship dilemmas, money hang-ups, and negative life scripts. With her colorful personal history, street language, and counterculture attitude, she's utterly convincing and hard to dismiss. Her in-your-face writing and one-of-a-kind vocal energy will wake up your abandoned dreams and light the kind of inner fire you need to move into a glorious uncharted future. T.W.

LJ Reviews 2014 March #2

Sincero (Don't Sleep with Your Drummer) narrates her newest release with a directness and sass that attempt to defrock her fellow self-help gurus. From the first chapter readers satisfied with lighter fare will enjoy Sincero's irreverence and wit as she strips away the mystique surrounding success and redresses it with glorious simplicity: decide to change, believe in what you cannot see, connect with source energy, and get off your tuchus! However, case studies are limited to Sincero's own experiences, and concrete strategy is absent. VERDICT Self-help novices and general audiences happy with a more material view of success will find Sincero's colloquial approach refreshing and celebrate her frankness. However, those looking for a more holistic and sophisticated view of success may prefer more researched works like Brendan Bruchard's The Charge.—Erin E. Forson, Columbus, OH

PW Reviews 2013 November #4

Jen Sincero offers a no-nonsense approach to reinventing yourself, shedding the past's baggage, and grasping the opportunities awaiting you, once you're ready to seize your inner awesomeness. Her goal is to chisel away the fluff of the self-help genre and identify exactly what you need to do in order to succeed. Sincero reads in a conversational voice, however she sometimes comes across as slightly condescending. As a narrator, Sincero tries to be both lively and relaxed, and thus her narration sounds uneven. Still, listeners looking to find their inner badasses and live awesome lives will find this spirited audio edition useful. A Running Press paperback. (Sept.)
