Genre: Non-Fiction; Self-Help
YOU ARE A BADASS IS THE SELF-HELP BOOK FOR PEOPLE WHO DESPERATELY WANT TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES BUT DON'T WANT TO GET BUSTED DOING IT.
In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word, helping you to:
- Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviours that stop you from getting what you want.
- Create a life you totally love. And create it NOW!
- Make some damn money already. The kind you've never made before.
By the end of You Are a Badass, you'll 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 use The Force to kick some serious ass.

My Take on the Book:
I found this book quite motivational; and the author has a way of clarifying and simplifying things. The resources at the back of the book were helpful as well. I ended up giving this leisurely read a four star rating.
This is the first time that I’ve read a book by this author, and have gotten myself another one to read as well.
It’s going to be nice to see what she comes out with in the future.
