You are a Badass by Jen Sincero

As a #1 New York Times Bestseller, author Jen Sincero packs a playful punch into this book.

What caught my attention about this book was the curse word on the front, it’s spunky. To my understanding I don’t see a lot of books throw themselves out there like that, most are more conservative.

After picking up this book and not putting it down for a full eight hours I finished it in one sitting. 27 uproarious chapters later I had a fire in my soul burning to be heard.

If you’re looking for an ultimate self-help book, look no further than this one. Through heartening personal stories, Sincero allows the reader to break the conditioning bonds of self-internalization and self-scrutiny we’ve been raised to practice.

Without giving too much away, the exercises she provides to the reader are monumental but so simple to incorporate into every day life. Some of these exercises train the brain, while others train the body.

I think what makes this book stand out the most to me is the wittiness, and blatant honest author Sincero. She lets it all hang out in this one.

Reading this book when someone is at a pivotal point in their life is a “make” situation as opposed to a “break.” I read this right before I went into my senior year of college and it gave me the push I needed to stay on top of all my school work even when I had a full case of senioritis.

I’m thinking about going through and reading it again for a motivational edge while I’m conducting a job search. The optimum result I got from reading this book was the unwavering nerve to be myself and capitalize on every opportunity I was given.

You can find it at a local book store or on Amazon here.
