Description

Audie Award Winner, Personal Development, 2014

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.

Ce que les critiques disent

"Sincero 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)

Excellent

This is an excellent book. No bullshit. No mumbo jumbo. Great advice. I would recommend it to everyone. I'll be listening to this regularly and be buying a hard copy as well.

Funny but not for Christians..

I found her to be quite amusing but after she started talking about the God of the universe and the hocus-pocus stuff I shut it off.

why did I buy this.

the psychology talk was neat. but then new wave psuedo science takes over and suddenly my life goals are all just vibrations in the Nebula. this book could be a summary of new wave cultist theory and you wouldn't need to change a word. Just make the narrator say everything ironically. now that I wouldn't mind buying.

Title misrepresents tone of content

What disappointed you about You are a Badass?

With a stand-out title like "You are a Badass", I expected a down-to-earth, rough around the edges perspective on the self-betterment theme. The LAST thing I expected was more of the same new-age speak that tends to pervade this genre. While the book contains chapters titled like "Your brain is your bitch", the actual content veers into discussions of communicating with the "source energy" of the universe, and "raising your vibrations" through meditation to fulfill your visions. The dissonance between how the book presents itself and the actual content was enough to prompt me to write this review to help inform future potential buyers.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The book is not without its helpful points and uplifting message- I did enjoy aspects of it. However, I'm offended by what seems to me to be a manipulative marketing angle using "curse words" in the title and chapter titles as an attempt to set this book aside from the sea of other self-development books that have similar content and approach.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was great!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from You are a Badass?

As editor, I would have strongly suggested the author remove or rework aspects that veer into new-age speak. "Raising your frequency", "vibrations", "source energy", "yoga", "mantras" are what a book titled "You are a Badass" should NOT contain. With as much time as this books spends on these topics, I'd suggest it be titled "Raising Your Vibrations: How to tap into the Source Energy of the Universe" - then readers would get what they paid for.

Any additional comments?

The title / cover marketing of this book was successful in that they convinced me to buy the book, but a failure in conveying the mood of the content.

Fantastic Read

At first listen I didn't know what was happening. Jen's voice was so different from what you normally hear on Audible. But I returned a day later and I'm so glad I did. She's funny. And the material is, well, life altering. If you let it. Just finished and I'm excited to implement all these tips to start living like a badass.

Best reminder I've read in a long time!

Every now and then we all need to be reminded just how much more we can be, and just how fast it's over. This book serves as a great reminder that you do as much as you can, have as much fun as you can, enjoy this planet as much as you can and love everyone around you as much as you can. Go do those things you love so much and do them now. Don't you dare look back in regret for what you didn't try...

Not much original insight

The book fell flat for me as it seemed as though the author was simply relaying stories and anecdotes she had collected from other sources. It was almost as though I was in a conversation with a marginally informed friend covering a host of topics but with no ability to bore down into meaningful detail on any one subject. Also a little too many F-bombs that served no real purpose other than as an attempt to convey edginess?

Too first world for my taste

Would you ever listen to anything by Jen Sincero again?

No I don't think so

Any additional comments?

I tried to love this book. I did. But it was just not it for me. All the suggestions and the advice I feel were just applicable in first world culture. Advice like do yoga, join chanting group, be with the universe etc were just too pretentious for me. It was painful for me to listen to it again. The narration was good. I just don't like the content.

One Listen Changed My Life!

I've been trying for 50 years (as an adult) to get my life together. I've read all the books and when I could remotely afford to, I went to seminars and airy-fairy weekends. This youngster comes along and in just a couple of hours gives me back a condensed version of all this wisdom in a way that made me want to -- uh, do the rest of my life like I mean it and tell it like it is. I'm selling on eBay and after a power outtage my computer would not start. I called around and was called "Ma'am" in a way that meant disrespect and told I need a new computer. I finally found someone who said he would replace the starter button for $20, but he did not call back as promised and got upset when I called to check on his progress. Three days went by. I am churning with Jen's awesome input about quit telling your stories (my car broke down; my computer runs Windows XP; I was the family scapegoat; I'm low-income; I'm probably too old and too fat, etc.) and take charge! Decide! Get up and do it! Well, then she offers many ways to get up and do it! She offers all kinds of easy strategies to "get there" from here, break it down into doable chunks, if you're really up for the trip. I tried a little meditation, asked God what to do with my Friday, and called the computer guy to say I want it today, fixed or not. When I got there, he gave me hell and watched me carry the huge CPU out to my car. I drove to another storefront which purported to be woman-owned. This precious Minnie Driver look-alike admired my old computer, got busy and gave me a "veterans discount." The shop was busy. I was happy to wait, thinking without the inspiration of Jen's neat book, I'd have been a victim and never met this wonderful computer goddess! Turned out she's the single mom of a two-year-old. She jumped out of an airplane at Burning Man to marry her true-love in 2008. They had crossed the country to live out west. He died two years ago sky-diving, may not have met his daughter. His widow keeps going, using what she learned from him to run his computer repair shop. And completed jobs are lined up on a shelf with their cords wound neatly on top of invoices ready for pick-up by pleased owners! It feels SO MUCH better to push out love and admiration than to sit grumbling in the gutter! . . . Jen says to envision, to dream. I know I don't have the money to travel; seen a lot already; I'm probably washed up for travel. Oh, no! They were talking on NPR about travel on the Dalmatian Coast which my parents had loved. Suddenly I listen with new ears thanks to Jen; I really want to see all that, try the foods, walk on the beaches! . . . The computer lady is going to install upgrades for me. Then I can do FB. If I still want to! Meanwhile some people ganged up on me in a FB group. It really hurt. I lost friends. I had the clarity to see their silly games and bail -- take care of myself, move on!

This is a powerful book! Jen has heard all the excuses. She knows all the traps. She talks fast giving all kinds of ideas in a great tumble of words. She touches on all kinds of problems that can hang us up for months or years. I have been diagnosed depressed and have kicked my meds. I know about depression, family pressure, music performance anxiety. Jen offers help for all these things. She has had the courage in her own life to try all sorts of wild and crazy things. She uses the F-word. As do I. To hell with people who turn off their ears and brains, stopped by a couple of word choices! She's had her own rock band and been to India. She has a website. Go see, watch her spiel on the home page. I believe a listen to this book would lift someone of any age, either sex, any body type, any ethnicity -- anyone who is not having the life they had hoped for. And I'm only on the second listen. Thank you, Jen! I love you!

Finding your inner BadAss

This Book will inspire you to be better....reminding & guiding you to be better than where you are now....

"There is nothing more unstoppable than a freight train of fuck yeah"....(Yep, she throws a few "F" bombs around haha)

Which character – as performed by Jen Sincero – was your favorite?

She does a great job with the presentation of the material.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from You are a Badass?

So many....a few stand out moments for me where regarding time & money. Showing "respect" to these two very important life spokes....she presents material in a very "Real" way. It's not a lecture....It's a "Hey, get your ass in gear....& get the fuck on the fuck"...haha (whatever that means:). It's all the great material from all the good books rolled into one. It's good. You will enjoy....

Any additional comments?

I have read all the "Good Books"....This is the best....It's entertaining & inclusive of all the Good Lessons. She tells it to ya in a real way. I am a 48 year old Male. I loved it. Listening for the 5th time and don't ever plan to stop....it's a great resource.

The title is a perfect reflection of the contents

What does Jen Sincero bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jen's speaking style as she reads is really enjoyable. She is really funny and energetic and her speaking compliments the contents.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from You are a Badass?

Everything! I've listened to the book at least 3 times and go back whenever I need a little pick me up. Jen has a really great way of putting what you need to hear into a funny, witty way that is uplifting and motivating. I love that she provides a number of action items in every chapter and one of those is always..."love yourself".

Any additional comments?

I've recommended this book to all of my friends. I absolutely love it and find many ways to apply the concepts to my daily life.

Every Badass Needs This Book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've listened to this book twice in the past month and a half, bought paperback copies for 3 of my like-minded girlfriends and the 2018 motivational calendar for myself. When I first started reading this, I was fresh out of a breakup. I felt lazy, depressed... I needed a boost, a jump-start and I needed the fire within me re-ignited. Listening to Jen's words does that, EVERY SINGLE TIME. I'll probably listen to it a few more times this year. And each time I'll attack my life with even greater energy and motivation.

What does Jen Sincero bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really felt like I was sharing her story with her. Unlike a true "autobiography," she really brings you in with her life experiences and gives you the lessons she learned... bullet points and all. She knows how to give you the wisdom, the story, and the lesson, without just talking about herself the whole time. In fact, she really makes it more about you than her. You will feel more empowered with each new chapter.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Deciding Is Freedom, Indecision is Torture"

Any additional comments?

If you are in any sort of transitional phase in your life... If you've ever been bullied... If you've ever doubted yourself... If you've ever been afraid... If you want to change your life... If you have big dreams that scare you... READ THIS BOOK

Complete Awesomeness!!!

Great book! The kind of book you should incorporate in your morning routine so that you can get your day started on the right mindset filled with tips and suggestions on how to live a better life and achieve your true potential. If applied correctly these tips can have a great impact in your life. I can attest that they actually worked for me and allowed me to see life from a different perspective and taught me how to face every situation with the correct mindset.
