Who doesn't want to know how to achieve real confidence - and who better to pass on the secrets than a woman who has overcome such gruelling physical and emotional hurdles and emerged on the other side smiling?
In 2008 Katie Piper survived a brutal rape and acid attack which left her severely burned and disfigured and changed her life forever. Her previous audiobooks told the story of her long and painful journey back towards health and happiness.
Now, in Confidence: The Secret, Katie takes the next step from recovery to empowerment, sharing what she's learned from her most difficult moments to inspire and guide others and giving listeners the tools they need to feel happy, confident and better about themselves. Showing that confidence is about valuing who you are, not what you do or how you look, Katie offers advice, ideas and inspiration for feeling more confident in all areas of life, whether it's at work or school, in relationships and friendships, or learning to love and respect your body.
With Katie's help and guidance, deep-down inner confidence is within everyone's reach.
Katie lives and has lived what she talks about. a really useful, real book which is interesting and un put down able. replayed solidly!

I enjoyed it, because I admire katie. However, the book is weak if you are looking for a self help book. it's more about Katie's personal journey to confidence

Would you listen to Confidence: The Secret again? Why?
I loved this book. Katie Piper was honest and moving. She talked about her attack and how she recovered from it. How she struggled at first and then,with time, refused to give her life to the people who had done this to her. And in sharing her experience she shared the way in which she is the confident outgoing young woman she is today.
So, there while there is much to take away from this yourself, there is also a great deal of strength to see in Katie.
A fabulous read. One I will definitely listen to again.
