Critic reviews

"I still have a little imposter syndrome, it never goes away, that you're actually listening to me...I share that with you because we all have doubts in our abilities, about our power and what that power is." (Michelle Obama)

"There are still days when I wake up feeling like a fraud, not sure I should be where I am." (Sheryl Sandberg)

"When I receive recognition for my acting, I feel incredibly uncomfortable. I tend to turn in on myself. I feel like an imposter." (Emma Watson)

A long overdue wake up call

Absolutely loved it, and realise it was long overdue. I now have a much better understanding of the Imposter Syndrome and how it has been impacting me for a very long time so I am ready to take all I have learnt from this book and move forward out of my comfort zone confidently. Easy to listen to, and great content. Thank you!

Well-read and easy listen

Written by a psychologist with lots of experience and stories to support the theory. A useful listen.

Life Changing Cure

Thank you Dr. Jessamy Hibberd for finally putting a name to this devastating illness that’s robbed me of being my true self for far too long. May God’s Peace and Blessings Be Upon You and Your Family and all who suffers as I.

Very Powerful Insight!

The first night I listened to this I played the first chapter for my mom and niece. I told them, this was me and asked them to just listen for 10 minutes so because I thought it might help them understand me. I watched both their heads sink as they found themselves in this book too. I was insecure my whole life. It did help me build a great business and nearly destroyed my marriage. It freeing to be able to acknowledge it and let it go.
