Publisher's Summary

Few people lack confidence all the time, and many people are more confident with friends, or when practising a skill they know, such as working on a computer or cooking a meal. Yet, too often, these skills of confidence in everyday contexts may be dismissed as "that's nothing" or "that doesn't count" precisely because they are so familiar.

This book aims to help people identify their areas of confidence and to extend them in small and practical increments. Confidence is seen not as a matter of what you feel, but what you do. Get the practice right and the feelings will follow.

The book includes practical exercises with a focus on changing negative thoughts to overcome negative behaviour.

    "Simple and a good starting point"

    The thing about confidence is that the people who have loads of it don't realize that they have it - they just take it for granted.
    So trying to become more confident is an interesting and potentially frustrating challenge as ultimately you want to be in a position where you don't worry or think about it, you are just yourself and happy in yourself.
    The Confidence Book doesn't have all the answers - no book can do. But it does provide a really useful starting point to begin addressing the issues that cloud your own opinion of yourself and your abilities. It doesn't try to teach you too much but leaves you with some really useful exercises so that the development can continue afterwards.
    Other more cerebral or longer books may suit some people but this one worked for me as a good introductory guide.

    "A Real Confidence Booster!"

    This book contains a great deal of advice, some of it pretty obvious and stated in numerous other books before but other titbits were of great use to me.
    I found the practical excercises in particular to be of great help. Ive always suffered with low confidence but this book has made me feel that I can change and can succeed.

    "Right advice, but tedious narrator !!!!"

    The content of the book shows a few examples on how to behave with confidence, but the narrator in this british accent makes it tedious and plain to follow
