Summary

Perfect for anyone looking for some no-nonsense advice for changing their life, this audiobook gives you bite-sized anecdotes to inspire and motivate. Narrated by the author, success coach Jen Sincero, it's just like listening to a wise best friend over a cup of coffee.

You Are a Badass is the self-help audiobook for people who desperately want to improve their lives but don't want to get busted doing it.

In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, best-selling author and world-travelling success coach Jen Sincero serves up 27 bite-size chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word, helping you to:

  • Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviours that stop you from getting what you want.
  • Create a life you totally love. And create it now.
  • Make some damn money already. The kind you've never made before.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you'll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.

Did not mention 'God' in the summary

For me it was a complete disappointment because I had such high hopes for this audiobook. I am sorry but the minute an author starts referring to 'God' they have completely lost me and I become disengaged and disillusioned because I do not believe in 'God'. It's perfectly OK to believe in 'God' and it's perfectly OK not to believe in 'God' , however, I feel rather frustrated because if the advice in this book is based on religious beliefs, then it should say so in the summary. If you're going to start referring to God, then please let us know before we purchase.

Didn't finish it

This focuses all on the religious aspect and demands that i keep an open mind to god. Using a so called self help book to promote your religious beliefs isn't useful in anyway. Not everyone requires a god to feel good about themselves.

Absolutely spot on!

I have listened to many, many self help audios, read many books and learned a lot. My experience of books by women are they are too soft and floaty and I struggle to relate. However, this lady is amazing. Totally to the point, feisty, funny and most of all manages to blend a go getting, no nonsense attitude with a spiritual approach to life and using the law of Attraction.

It's all about clarity, going after what you want, being truthful with yourself and acting with integrity. Making changes we know we need to make and with Bad Ass attitude. Loved it. Oh and loving yourself and your life. I am going straight into my second listening now, this time with pen ready to list out my action points.

Good Book

I was a bit put of buying this book because of its brash title. I only bought it because it was recommend to me. However, I was pleasantly suprised at how much I enjoyed it. It gives good advice how to be the person you want to be. It is well worth listening to.

Think I've heard all this before....

This is pretty much lessons from many other self help books. If you've read the secret, the chimp paradox or the happiness advantage don't bother with this. If you've not read them, buy them instead!

Same old stuff nothing new

Besides the clever title was a bit underwhelmed by this book. Don't think it offered anything new. Believe in yourself, the universe, stop making excuses and take action that about sums up the book. To me it was just another law of attraction book. Having said all that I liked some of the content and this book would be more suited to those just beginning a journey of self discovery. But would make a great read for first timers

Super basic

Important: 1. If you've already read/listened some books about self-help, this is not for you. This is super basic, and you'll be wasting your money/credits on this.
2. If you don't like this california "gal" way of speaking ("you knoooow?", "I mean, likeeee", "So I was like ahhh, and he was likeee yuck") don't waste your money/credits on this.
The combination of these two things made it a really bad experience for me. Still, I made it through to give a complete review: may work for you if this is your first contact with self-help, maybe if it's the second, after "The monk who sold his Ferrari" and other super basic stuff. It is topical, almost childish, "Universe will give you what you want" kind of thing. If you're into that, go ahead. If not, run.

Some good advice, a lot of nonsense

This book is basically just the author telling you to believe in yourself, imagine the life you want and then going for it. I was somewhat on board until the author at one point the author advices people with depression to "change their stories" and stop being depressed...

Useless waste of time!

I couldn’t get through this book and finish it. After one hour I gave it. It had absolutely nothing to offer me. It was actually so bad it was insulting to my intelligence.

Life changing

Jen’s narration is very easy to listen to. Her book is highly witty yet possibly the most life changing book I have read. Rich with practical, no nonsense advice on how to pull your act together and create the life you deserve, I just couldn’t put it down. I loved this book so much I’m ordering the hard copy in addition to her other books!

Fun and inspiring!

My wife and I started listening to this together, but I couldn't wait for our schedules to sync up to keep listening. I'm an instant fan of Jen Sincero's style/humor and her message. It might not be for everyone, but - as my father always says - that's why they make chocolate and vanilla.

Serious subject matter - beautiful, relatable delivery

Jen addresses a serious subject matter around all things spiritual and mystic but in such a relatable and humor filled approach. Absolutely loved every minute of this audio book
