I first read this book when my confidence was at its lowest. I had heard of Katie Piper and how inspiring she was and when I came across the book by chance I decided to read it. I was already reading personal development books daily and a book to improve my confidence sounded perfect.
I got completely hooked on the book, you know when you come across a book that you love and you can’t put it down – that was me. I only schedule reading into my morning but I was reading this book every opportunity I got. It was the quickest I’ve ever read a book and I’m usually a slow reader. It was so easy to read, simple yet so effective.
What I loved most about it was all the exercises it gives you to try. I’ve added all of them into my life and it’s made a huge difference. Friends that have known me through my journey of anxiety say that I am now unrecognisable from the girl I used to be – in a good way. My confidence has grown massively, I am no longer nervous and uncomfortable in social situations and around new people.

Since reading this book I applied for a new job, something I’d never dreamed of doing. I’ve been in the same job for 4 years – I loved it but I could no longer progress there, I was just too afraid of change to apply for anything else. When I found out I had an interview for this job I was so excited, I was really surprised as situations like this used to make me feel so nervous that I felt sick.
The day of the interview came and I still wasn’t nervous – it was a complete success, I don’t think it could have possibly gone better I couldn’t believe it. I got the job and normally this would make me nervous – not knowing my new role, having to meet new people and make friends again.
The first day of my new job came and I was slightly nervous but more excited than anything. I walked in feeling confident, I talked to everyone I saw and made new friends instantly. I was just so amazed at how much my confidence has grown.
The reason I shared that story is to show you just how much my confidence has grown since reading this book. Before reading it I wouldn’t have even applied for the job, let alone had a successful interview and made new friends. It’s just amazing how much one book can help transform your life like that.
I highly recommend this book if you’re looking to grow your confidence and I hope you have the same results that I did. You can buy it here, through Amazon.
