Review

"... the structure of the content got a grip of this mass of information. I especially loved the ending of each chapter with activities and, even more important, evaluation. There is no progress without tracking. Rob took care about everything. And he broke every piece of analysis down to really small and manageable chunks." - Michal Stawicki, author of Amazon bestseller "Master Your Time in 10 Minutes a Day"

"A powerful guide into instilling more confidence into your every day life. The solutions are laid out into easy to read sections. This book isn't just to be speed read through and that's it. It's meant to be read with an open mind and let the solutions digest and put them into action. That's the only way you'll ever be able to improve your confidence." - Benny Hsu, online entrepreneur and blogger at Get Busy Living

"... I really liked was the idea of 'power poses' for self confidence in Chapter 10. It's really important how you stand, how you position yourself, how you convey your confidence through your body." - Tom Sullivan, author of "What to Get When You're Expecting"
*
"I would recommend reading it a few times as to fully embrace everything that he teaches you. I also think it's great how he incorporated activities within the book. My favorite was ... "Pick a self-loving activity." - Karen Brueggeman, author of "Fruzzle's Mystery Talent"

About the Author

I'm Rob Leonardo, a research professional, author, blogger and most especially, a self-help junkie. I started my interest in personal development back in my teens when I started looking for some help to remedy my lack of confidence. I started picking up those books at home (the earliest I remember - looking back - was 'Your Erroneous Zones' by Dr. Wayne Dyer) and started learning. Fast forward, here I am, still a work in progress, but has improved a lot. From a painfully shy boy who would not talk in the classroom to a well-admired expert in my profession, I constantly have to remind myself of how much I have progressed. Two years back, I decided it was time to pay it forward and share what I have learned. Hence, the blog ConfidenceCues.com was born. It became a haven for people who want to learn about self-confidence and personal improvement. I have reached out to other blogs to spread the good news: You have the right to be self-confident.

This is an incredibly thorough and well researched book on self confidence. 18 chapters jam packed with super useful content for anyone who needs a confidence boost. It could be used read cover to cover or used as a reference over time. Definitely don't skip over the activities and evaluations because that is where you will gain the most. Some of the knowledge bombs in this book actually surprised me, and I've read a lot of self help/personal development books. One thing that stood out for me is in Chapter 4 when he talks about making sure to find the time to party when you're a new parent. I'm a new parent, and I totally agree, its really important to get out and is totally self nurturing my 'social' self, giving me a boost I need. Another thing I really liked was the idea of 'power poses' for self confidence in Chapter 10. It's really important how you stand, how you position yourself, how you convey your confidence through your body. Of course the most valuable advice comes in the conclusion, "Keep Working on Yourself Every Single Day." Nothing is truer than that. If you need a confidence boost, use something from this book every single day you will get the boost you need.

Rob recommended to devour this book slowly and he was right to advise that. Unfortunately I was in a hurry and read it really quickly. I regret it. He was right. It should be read slowly and carefully, it's full of wisdom.

First a bit of criticism: affirmations, yikes! And the scope of the book is sooooo wide. The reader can get overwhelmed by the amount of knowledge and action steps packed in not so long book.

However the structure of the content got a grip of this mass of information. I especially loved the ending of each chapter with activities and, even more important, evaluation. There is no progress without tracking. Rob took care about everything. And he broke every piece of analysis down to really small and manageable chunks.
Plus the wide scope allows a reader to pick what works for him (like ditching affirmations :P)

The book spoke to my numbers cruncher's heart. It is very down to earth and practical. Some formulas and numbers (risk calculation) just captivated my attention.

Rob knows what he preaches. He went through a journey from socially retarded to confident and it shows in his book. I can tell because I went through similar journey.
"Confidence Upgrade" is written with personal touch and genuine- exactly how I like self-help books. I highly recommend this position.

This is a very well-written book that is a must for those who, not only wants to improve their self-confidence, but for anyone who wants to achieve a better chance to lead a successful life for themselves and their family.

His mantra of being bold, assertive, and happy, as simple as it may seem, aligns with having a dream, a goal, visualizing one's goals, building the confidence to achieve it, one day at a time, and being successful at it.

He showed us a step-by-step process of building self-confidence and really achieving success without even thinking about it... Success is almost automatic!

Who in the world does not need confidence! Even the mightiest emperor in the world has a mirror (rather, more mirrors than everyone else) in his place to check how he looks. We all are much less than emperors, and therefore we definitely need much more self-confidence than them!!

There are two kinds of self-confidences. One is seen in people who are naturally over-confident. Most of it is vain, and none of us needs that kind! What we need is the other kind -- the self-confidence that comes via a long process of building it. And remember, it is not built directly. Rather, one builds many other areas of life, and that in turn builds and boosts our self-confidence. This is exactly what the author explains in great detail and with great care.

He explores various areas of life that one needs to explore, and then build one stone at a time. What is built in this way eventually becomes very tall, cannot fall easily because it has deep foundations, and gives one an unusual confidence in what one is. Just as Rome was not built in a day, self-confidence is not built in a day. And just as the image of Rome endures millennia after it was built, a properly built self-confidence remains here, come what may.

The author has taken time to understand the subject, and he has taken time to explain it all in 'steps'. If you are in a great hurry develop it all, the book will not help you. Nor will you ever have lasting self-confidence!! I guarantee. However, take the book seriously, do it one at a time, and eventually you will own a rock solid self confidence.

**** An analytical approach
**** Eminently practical
**** Surprisingly simple
**** I highly recommend this book
