#1 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
“Author and success coach Jen Sincero takes the self-help book to another level with her cutthroat humor and in-your-face attitude. …The 27 thoughtful, well-written chapters are worth it—by the time you finish the book, you will understand the secrets to a life you deserve and how awesome you really are at controlling the outcome of your life. In other words, you’ll realize how much of a BAMF you really are!”
—Albuquerque’s Weekly Alibi
“Sincero has probably written the most entertaining self-help book many readers will ever get in their hands on…. Reading this book was like talking to a best friend – the one that will tell you like it is no matter the circumstances and that forces you to think outside the box.”
—The State Hornet, California State University, Sacramento campus paper
“[You Are a Badass] is (and I quote) “the self-help book for people who desperately want to improve their lives, but don’t want to get busted doing it.” You have permission to upsize your serving of awesome with this funny, fulfilling read.
“YOU ARE A BADASS is a phenomenon!”
—Liesl Freudenstein, Boulder Book Store

Depression is something to be taken very seriously. Some people battle it their whole lives while others have to deal with it chronically, and some seasonally, but it is not the same as feeling sad for a bit. It concerns me even more deeply that this is a best selling book and people who read read may begin to believe that depression is an act or a choice or a 'story' as the author would call it. Our society truly does not understand this condition or support people who are suffering with it.
There are over 50,000+ books on Amazon helping people who have depression. This is not one of them. I absolutely do not recommend reading this book if you struggle with depression. I also do not recommend it in general as I gleaned nothing useful from the first half of the book. I'd return this if I could.
