Product description

World-renowned personality expert reveals the truth about something we all want more of--confidence Millions of people are plagued by low self-confidence. But in "Confidence," personality expert Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic shows us that high confidence makes us less likeable, less employable, and less successful in the long run. He reveals the benefits of low confidence (including being more motivated and self-aware), teaches us how to know when to fake it, get ahead at work, improve our social skills, feel better emotionally and physically, and much more. With this engaging, practical study of our minds and emotions, we can become more capable in every facet of life. Based on decades of research, including the author's own groundbreaking work, and filled with fascinating anecdotal evidence, this will appeal to readers of" The Willpower Instinct "by Kelly McGonigal and "Succeed "by Heidi Grant Halvorson. "Confidence "will shatter every myth you've ever believed about self-confidence and its effects on us--ranging from the very personal to the global level.

Review quote

""Confidence" nails it--if you want to achieve great things, you are better off being your own worst critic than your own biggest fan. Read this book and you will never look at the concept of self-esteem the same way again." --Laura Vanderkam, author of "All The Money In The World" and "What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast" "Compelling and zippy." --"Financial Times" "I can't remember the last time I finished reading a book and wanted to applaud. " Confidence" is a life-changing book--it will convince you, through brilliant arguments and an abundance of compelling evidence, that much of the advice you've been given on how to be successful is worse than useless. In fact, it's been holding you back. Before you read anything else, read "Confidence."" --Heidi Grant Halvorson, PhD author of "Focus" and "Succeed" "Outstanding." --Inc.com "A provocative work, an excursion into the role of confidence at work, in relationships, and the impact on leading a healthy life. Dr. Chamorro-Premuzic repeatedly challenges our beliefs, which makes for a stimulating read." --The" Globe and Mail" "Maybe you have always intuited, as most sensitive people do, that all the talk about boosting self-confidence and raising self-esteem is not the answer to success or happiness. This charming and thoroughly fact-based book will give you the evidence to back your wisdom, that being kind and competent works best." --Elaine Aron, PhD, author of "The Highly Sensitive Person" and "The Undervalued Self" "Interesting and transformative thinking that will not only have you accepting your inner critic and low self-confidence, but embracing it.... Chamorro-Premuzic writes in a kind, gentle, yet authoritative tone that will inspire the "insecure" reader and retire the over-confident ones....a new and enlightened perspective...This book is required reading for any professional." --"Small Business Trends " "
