Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I absolutely loved this book. I read some reviews below of people saying they weren't fond of it but that is totally okay :) to each their own! This book changed me in so many ways. I felt like Jen was having a conversation with me through this book. She made it an easy read, well written & so funny. We often forget that these authors are humans too & to get where they are now, they lived a pretty interesting past as well. I loved that she opened up a lot in this book & spoke about her struggles. I remember going through some tough times while reading this book and it made me understand certain things so much better. I have recommended this book to a lot of people! I also purchased it as a gift to others. AND I was at the indigo store a couple months ago & there was a woman in the self help section, she looked so frustrated and confused...she had about six books in her hands, one of them being this book (not saying the people who work there aren't 10x better at recommending books, they are amazing! but there was no one around her at that time so I decided to help her). She was unsure which one to purchase and I told her to go with this one (You are a bad ass) and I told her why I loved it so much. She was so happy & decided to buy it! Needless to say, if you love simple self help books that get straight to the point....this is it. It will open your eyes & make you understand everything so much better. You will feel a weight lifted off your shoulder when you finish reading it. Love you Jen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book Jen Sincero teaches valuable life lessons through sharing her stories and experiences. Once I started reading this book I did not want to put it down. You are a Badass is a must read if you are looking for actionable steps to improve your life. I loved this book so much that I ordered You are a Badass at Making Money and You are a Badass Every Day before I even finished reading this book. I wanted to consume all the information Jen Sincero had available to share and her other two books did not disappoint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I want my money back She offers terribly irresponsible advice. Incredibly offensive towards people with depression. "It's familiar and cozy. It also gets you attention. People come in and check on you and sometimes bring you food. It gives you something to talk about." Yeah, I love being depressed. It's real comfy for me and I love people pitying me. Give me a break. The cursing seems forced and out of place in an attempt to be quirky and hip. I am just upset that I spent money on but according to Jen we should spend money we don't have so I shouldn't feel bad, right?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed After reading the rave reviews, I thought for sure this was going to be a great read. Unfortunately, I couldn't be more wrong. I see where this author is coming from, I really do. However, some of her concepts are so "out there", they're bound to set you up for failure. For example, when she was debating between the Audi or the Honda CRV, even though she had no means or way to pay for the Audi, she got it. She found a way to scrape by and get the cash for the car. If I tried that, I'd be in debt so fast my head would spin. This book is much more of "connect with the Universe (God), meditate, believe you can do anything, take risks, be uncomfortable, and love yourself". Nothing new. #plumreview

Someone who is honest and encouraging, but sassy. Jen is like one of your girlfriends who wants you to thrive and kickass in all areas of your life. Her advice is refreshingly written in a tone that's meant to push you to get your act together, while being your cheerleader on the sidelines. A lovely read! #plumreview

Jen brings a wealth of humor, examples, and experience to this book, and includes thirdparty resources for those seaking more knowladge. I will definitely continue to refer back to it in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth paying for If you're into the "Ra-Ra-Ra self-help" kind of books, this one will be right up your alley. I had higher hopes for what this book was going to deliver. I am sure if you pick up any other self-help book, you will find similar "how-tos". There was definitely some clever writing and witty comments; I did find myself in a good chuckle here and there. I also found multiple gramatical and spelling errors, which for me, made it difficult and frustrating to get through.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Usual I did enjoy this book. I have read a few self help books though and they all have the same idea which I don't think is a bad thing because there has to be some truth to it then. I like reading these books when I start feeling down and need to get back on track.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It had interesting suggestions It was alright. There were interesting thoughts on how to improve your life. I wasn't always a huge fan of the author's tone. It depends on the person and the time of your life that you're in as to whether or not you'll take something from this book. It never hurts to remind yourself to stay on track and live your life to the fullest, and this book offers some solutions to help you (a woman) grow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book A lot of great life tips. I strongly suggest a highlighter while reading, so that you can highlight the parts that are relevant to you. I can't wait to do all that she has suggested. The grammar was not the best. There are a lot of grammatical/ spelling errors. Also, I was not fond of her language. If you want me to believe that I am a BADASS, then talk to me like I am one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really WANTED to like this book... I’m not sure if it was the author’s ‘buddy-buddy-casual-you-are-a-weenie’ vocabulary or the content itself, but for some reason, I just could NOT get into this book. It was such a struggle to get through, and to be perfectly honest, I’m not sure if I learned anything new. I feel like the main things I remember are “use your credit card to hire a coach” and the author’s take on the law of attraction. I can see why others would enjoy this book, it just wasn’t for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good read Liked this book a lot. Helpful and encouraging if you want a real look at your life. Sometime a bit too pushy on forgetting the past things you've learned—so strong that it turned me off of the book a bit. But maybe that just means I'm holding too tightly to my old beliefs. I would strongly suggest giving this book a try.

If you are seeking a little motivation, this book is for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down As a lover of 'self-help' books and also of books that make me think and keep me interested, this book was a perfect combination of those things. It was easy to read - and while most of the ideas are not new/revolutionary, they are presented in a way that makes them easy to apply to your own life. I bought it for a friend and ended up keeping a copy when I started reading and couldn't put it down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVED IT:) "You are powerful. You are loved. You are surrounded by miracles." I strongly recommend this book if you are feeling down, unloved, or just wanting to cheer yourself up more. At the end, it makes you wonder if you are where you want to be, be who you want to be, but most important, if you are loving yourself through every moment of your life! So, this is the book if you just want someone to remind you how valuable your life is, and how beautiful you are!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from want to go for drinks with her Witty and intelligent. It outlines ideas easily and has a lot of valid points. I am going to read and reread until the majority of them stick. If you are stuck or in a "Meh" phase this might be the book to give you a swift kick in the tush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jen Sincero is an absolutely brilliant writer and this book was incredible! This was the first book in the "personal development" category that I ever read and all I can say is OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I am addicted to them now thanks to Jen Sincero! She is funny and clever and whitty and potty mouthed and serious and inspiring all at the same time! This book is absolutely perfect and remains my favorite to this day! I even buy it as gifts for friends often! Highly, highly, highly recommend this book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars? Good for a pep talk but not exactly revolutionary. Lots of The Secret-style manifest intentionality type self-help suggestions so if you're into that then this book is for you. Less woo-woo than other books of the genre.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great The book is a good introduction to someone who has yet to jump onto the "self-help" band wagon. That being said, if you are not new to this genre of literature, like myself, I did not find it to be very insightful or life changing. It was a good basic exercise/checklist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok I'm a fast reader but i just couldn't find it in my self to read this all in one sitting -- took me over a week to finish it. The book is longer then it needs to be and the author too often repeats and contradicts herself. On the bright side, there are plenty of inspiring quotes.
Date published: 2017-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this book! This is one of the best books on personal development (+ business), I've ever read. The first time I read the book was from start to finish (6'ish hours) during the night - no sleep. But who needs sleep with a book like this? I keep re-reading the book. If you're reading this, chances are, that you're somewhat curious or interested in the book. Take this as a sign, that this is the book for you. Please do yourself a giant favour and buy the book - it's amazing and I'm sure, you'll end up loving it as much as I do. Jen Sincero is a fantastic writer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I read this book in one week and still find myself going back to do all the exercises she suggests! It is funny, helpful, honest...brutally honest and most important, inspirational! Each situation Jennifer brings you through is easy to relate to and really puts your own situations into perspective. I will without a doubt be ordering more of her work!

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Bestseller“Sincero (Don't Sleep With Your Drummer) brings a fun, feminine verve to now well-tread self-help tropes The tone is far more feisty than academic, and there's humor on every page, all of which is exactly what her intended audience most needs"—Publishers Weekly online“If touchy-feely self-help tomes make you feel, shall we say, less than inspired, this no-nonsense manifesto to awesomeness might be just what you're looking for. Filled with blunt and sassy advice, do-it-yourself exercises in personal transformation, and a whole lot of hilarity, You Are a Badass will silence your inner critic, and help you build a life worthy of the kind of Facebook news feed that others envy. Take a day off from looking for your inner goddess, and spending some time cultivating your outer badass instead.”—“I adore Jen's realistic and funny take on all matters of living an awesome life. She has such a gift for writing in a very digestible way that will appeal to everyone. If you're looking for purple unicorns and rainbows you won't find them here, what you will find are practical and easy ways to connect with your inner badass and change your life.”—Madisyn Taylor, Co-Founder, DailyOM
