Want an inspiring book to get you moving? This book was amazing, absolutely loved it. It inspired me to get up and start living. She combines comedy with walking through life with serious guidance.

I think for the typical person this is a good self help book. I think that if some one is suffering from depression, or a mental health issue that requires professional help, then some of her message could do more harm than good. I believe there was a part where she says, and I am really really paraphrasing, if you don't do "this" then you can go back to your pathetic "blah" life. Also, if you are sensitive to cussing or have children around... pass on this she does it a lot.

As for me, I liked the overall arc of this book. I did have a few aha moments. Mostly what I am getting out of the excuses/fears that I have, she calls them false rewards. I think that at lot of it are all things that we have heard before but it was put together in a relatable way. I love the quotes that she chose for her book and there are some good takeaways. I think that listening to the audiobook made the difference for me. I don't think I would have been able finish it had I read the actual book.

One of the better self-help books that I've read. Jen Sincero, does a really good job breaking points down and sharing her life experiences. I would highly recommend this book to a few of my friends who feel stuck. Positive thinking is key!

I really liked this book. It has some of the classic thoughts from the "Readers are Leaders" self-improvement mantra but with a twist. I find myself thinking about and explaining at least one adage from this to other people several times a day. I definitely recommend this book. She does use some bad language from time-to-time and has some outlandish theories but it is worth reading/listening to. The overall theme is to love yourself, you can do anything, and never give up!

I'm a give it to me straight kinda person which is why I love this book. It is now one of my go to books/audio to reach for. We are bombarded daily with bad news, people's words/actions all topped off with the worldwind of doubt, negative self talk & thoughts going on in our heads. Listening & reading positive content daily is necessary. Not all audiobooks are worth listening to but this one TRULY is worth it! Jen is funny, in your face, find your peace, love yourself, stop whining & just do it already. I now own the book and the audio version of You are a BadAss and I will be telling others they need to not only read the book but they MUST listen the audio version! Thank you Jen Sincero for writing an incredible book.
