The "Imposter Cure" has literally been the cure. I felt like Dr. Hibberd was walking around my own head. I went in skeptical - how could anyone understand? But she spends the first part of the book unequivocally showing that she understands the imposter syndrome inside and out. Things I've said to myself showed up almost word for word in the book. She then walks you through how to get rid of the negative, diminishing voices for good. After only being halfway through the book, a huge lightbulb went off. I went back into work confident, I owned my time. Someone rushed into my office with an issue - before I would have panicked, felt insecure and that I needed to answer right away - now I feel confident enough to ask for them to wait. I take the time I need to gather my thoughts and be decisive. I don't obsess over tiny mispellings/mistakes or the behavior of my micromanaging boss. Thank you Dr. Hibberd for writing this incredible book - if you're suffering from imposter syndrome please please read this and free yourself!

I especially liked the ending, where she encourages us to slow down and enjoy the journey and not to be for ever striving for more, more, more. She reminds us of what it is to be a fully rounded human being who is not perfect.
I would say there is a good dose of wisdom in this book, from someone who, refreshingly, does not claim to be perfect herself, but has a lot of professional experience to offer. Its tone is supportive and does not lecture, but comes from a position of knowledgeable and caring friend. Dr Jessamy has done her academic research, along with having a lot of clinical experience, but the book speaks on a personal level, mentioning her own struggles with Imposture Syndrome.
I especially liked the chapters where she encourages us to look at the bigger picture. We all need reminding of that!
Dr Jessamy helps understand why you may be feeling this way and works through techniques in which to counter it.
A well written, straight forward, no nonsense book full of expert advice and real life examples.
