*** PSA: Vent Alert***
I didn't give this review a low rating because Sicero is a bad writer - she is perfectly effective for the task at hand and actually her appealing "ra-ra-go-get'em" voice is what drew me in to begin with. I ultimately bailed however, as I have a Big Problem with the central thesis of this book. Basically it all boils down to the theory that everyone has the power to "manifest" their own reality and if things are not working out for them it is because they are not manifestin ...more
I think some of the ideas in here are on the right track, but her "just do it" kind of attitude is shortsighted and potentially harmful for someone who is dealing with actual mental health issues like depression and anxiety. There is a way to believe that I am a badass capable of overcoming my self-doubt and my other obstacles, but I don't think Jen Sincero is going to help me with that.

I was really excited for this book. I have the day-by-day calendar and I love it. It's posts are quick and witty and there's a bonus on the back of every day that tells you something interesting, or is a little puzzle, or something to get you thinking. It's great. The book version was...a let down, for a few reasons.

I got the audio of this on sale and I love the title -- but that was the thing I loved the most about it. When I started listening to it, I thought -- okay, maybe a little too "woo-woo" for me, but the tone is fun and it moves quickly and the audio was the right length for the rest of my ride. As I kept listening, I decided it was ok, not great, but some useful tips. Decided I probably wouldn't review it since I don't usually do reviews if I don't have something positive to say. And then I got t ...more

Served with a healthy dose of humor, a smidge of sarcasm and plenty of great quotes, Jen Sincero dishes her take on self-help, self- acceptance and (of course) self-love.
This has all the hallmarks of a Self-Help book - cheesy one-liners and a perky "You CAN do it" attitude. I honestly expected it to be just another cookie cutter how to become the real you. Bleh. Needless to say, I was totally ready to hate it.
Yet, the more I read, the more I enjoyed hearing her advice. She's hilarious. ...more
Did I just get tricked into reading a rip-off of The Secret because I liked the title?
