Wish I'd have had this book years ago

I already have the paperback, which has already been so helpful and a bit of a lifeline for me - but was really pleased to see there is also an audio book version too. I wholeheartedly recommend this title. Other books tend to overcomplicate things and sometimes are a bit too technical. This one is different, it makes the imposter syndrome easy to understand and enables you to approach your own challenges in a more positive way. Once you've got into the rhythm, it will make perfect sense. I wish I'd have had this book years ago. A great read and even easier to listen to!

Powerful and empowering

This book does a great job at boosting your confidence, that's for sure. It's so easy to doubt yourself nowadays when everyone around you seems to have more skills or life all together, but the reality is that everyone is different and is at a different stage of life. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting some inspiration.

Really rewarding, but challenging

This book has my number. Lol. I am guilty of feeling like a fraud all the time! One - it was good to learn that I'm not alone. Two - this book gave me a ton of context for why I'm like this. Three - it gave me things to do to shake the habit.
So, it's a winner. Glad I found it. Great narrator too. Recommend!!

Loved it!

A friend gave me this book and it was more than I expected. The author does a great job of explaining and breaking down all the different types of imposter syndrome, and it has given me a new outlook on myself and the people I meet. I also loved the 30-day challenge. The narrator has a nice voice and it was a joy to listen to.
