Book Review You are a Badass by Jen Sincero - Literary Laundry List

You Are a Badass

Let me start by stating that I’m not the self-help book type of gal. There’s nothing wrong with the self-help genre; I’ve just never found it appealing or very interesting. Then lo and behold: You are a Badass, by Jen Sincero! Wow…

I’ll tell you how I ended up listening to the audiobook version of this book. My sister recently made a huge move. She packed up everything and moved to another state. Besides leaving her family, friends, career, and everything she knows and loves, one of her pets became very ill. Needless to say, she was down in the dumps (and that’s the rated G version).

I downloaded the book from Audible to put some pep back in her step. After she read it & raved about it, she suggested I do the same. I grudgingly clicked PLAY. Then, I was floored!

This book is funny, poignant, inspirational, and moving. It’s a lot more than that as well. I found myself nodding and smiling and thinking, “Yeah, that’s true!” & “I’m making some changes – right now.” And that’s coming from a non-believer of self-help books 🙂

What You’ll Get From This Book

Positivity! This book is so full of positive vibes that you can’t help but feel it rubbing off on you. It’s like having your own personal, no B.S. cheer team. It’s a double whammy of inspiration and a big ole kick in the pants.

Seriously, this book will get you on the way to stopping the self-doubt that consumes us all, help you set that doubt aside, and then guide you on your way to tweaking the aspects of yourself and your life that you feel need to be altered.

In Closing

Read it. Period. If you’re like me and aren’t really into the self-help thing, just give it a whirl and check out if maybe those first few lines won’t change your mind. Or at the least change your view about this book. That’s me at least. I’m not going to run out and pile up the inspirational manuals, but I will totally keep this book forever. Loved it! This is the first 5-star review of 2016 *applause*.

“You are perfect. To think anything less is as pointless as a river thinking that it’s got too many curves or that it moves too slowly or that its rapids are too rapid. Says who?” – Jen Sincero, You are a Badass

Take care & be kind☆彡

    • *fistbump* From one badass to another, hello! I was surprised by this book. I didn’t expect to like it, let alone love it!

    • Ha!! 🙂 It’s a lot more than badassery. It’s like a inspirational and “energy” fuel book (does that make any sense?). You’d like it!

    • Yep, I feel the same 🙂 I think this particular book is different, although I don’t exactly have another self-help book to compare, and I love Sincero’s straightforward way of speaking.
