Editorial Reviews

Review

“Written with great humor, tolerance, honesty, and wisdom, this book is sort of like having your own personal cheerleader with you 24/7. The work given is excellent, well-thought out, and obviously based on experience....If you’re feeling you really want to cut that inner ‘mean girl’ down to size once and for all, this is the book to help you do it.”
New Spirit Journal

“Ahlers’s book won't bore you with psychological jargon and dry theory. It's fun to read and filled with coaching, affirmations, inspiring quotations, and stories, yet her understanding and insight are deep and can take you by surprise.”

You are worth it.

I am a skeptic. I always look at new self-help books out of the corner of one eye--so when I say that Amy Ahlers gave me my own truth, you know it's coming from a totally sincere place. I didn't even KNOW I was lying to myself. This book is so simple, really--it just lays out the crap we say to ourselves, mostly without even thinking, and gives us a way to not only reframe it, but take action. This is not your run of the mill "you are doing everything wrong and I'm just the expert to fix you" book. NO WAY. This is about joining a movement of truth-telling superstars who will not take any more self-torture. Period. I learned something from Amy that I cannot un-learn: how to hear through my bull crap and tell the truth. This is going to be my go-to gift for friends and clients this year.

This book is a MUST read for all women...and even for men (like me) who both have important women in our lives and also have a tendency to be hard on ourselves. I love Amy Ahlers and have been a fan of her work for some time...I'm so glad she wrote this book and put these "Big Fat Lies" out there. Her message is easy to access and understand, yet filled with depth, power, and practical advice. She understands how we operate as human beings and our negative tendency to be hyper self critical. When my girls are old enough to read a book like this, it will be one of the first ones I recommend for them. The openness, vulnerability, truth, and wisdom of this book shines through - you will be inspired, comforted, and empowered to let go of self criticism and take your life, work, and/or relationship to the next level. I HIGHLY recommend picking up a copy for yourself and for all of the important the women (and even some of the men) in your life!

In this insightful and well-crafted book, Amy Ahlers gets straight to the heart of the matter of each of these lies women tell themselves. But more than that, she goes on to offer clear, simple and practical advice and suggestions for helping shut off the endlessly dripping faucet of self-criticism that plagues so many of us, no matter how smart, creative, successful, happy or fulfilled we know ourselves to be. Because it doesn't matter. It is a sad truth that modern women suffer from phenomenal amounts of self-loathing and self-criticism in every area of our lives. And this is how this book is organized: by life area. Whole self, body, career, and so forth.

I am not much of a self-help reader. In fact, I am a huge skeptic of most of this sort of thing. (Nor, by the way, am I a friend. I don't know the author personally.) But then, Amy Ahlers is not your average self-help writer. To be honest, no one is more surprised than I am at my own response here. The prose is clear and concise, the suggestions and advice filled with compassion and delivered with a refreshing directness, and the stories are real-world.

In my experience, each of these lies and the way Amy Ahlers presents them provides, if one chooses, an invitation to a much deeper soul-searching meditation. And the simplicity is part of the greatness here. All really good spiritual teachers, coaches and therapists know the value of not bogging someone down in quicksand. They know the value of repetition. And of mirroring one's own wisdom. The author does all that and more, in a way that feels both simple ("Oh, of course, right! That makes sense!") yet is nonetheless deep. We resonate the most with those who strike us as having garnered that wisdom because they have traveled the path.

Format: Paperback
Reading Amy Ahlers dissect the many Big Fat Lies (and you will recognize nearly all, if not all, of them!) is like having a private coaching session that leaves you challenged, yet lovingly supported to improve and take care of yourself.

The Big Fat Lies are so true and so pervasive - it's amazing to see them all in one place, and even more important - DEBUNKED so effectively. Amy Ahlers doesn't simply say "hey, these are lies!" - she lovingly challenges the reader to acknowledge them and provides actual coaching tools to address each one.

This is a true handbook that I will be turning to, time and time again, as I face a sneak attack (or full-on assault) by a Big Fat Lie. I feel as if I have the coaching power and authentic, compassionate coaching of Amy Ahlers available whenever I need it - what a great tool.

I can assure you that this book is one that will get USED. It won't spend time collecting dust on a bookshelf - it will be consulted and pages will be dog-eared. I am already listing my dear girlfriends and family members who will be receiving their copy!

I love this book! I say "love" as opposed to "loved" because it is a book you keep going back to again and again. I feel like this book nails it.... for any woman who has those moments of never feeling quite good enough. Many of the exercises really hit home for me. Amy asks great questions of the reader and I love her voice throughout the book. It's like you are talking to a good friend. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to quiet down the crazy in her head!
