Chamorro-Premuzic has rethought confidence - a fresh, more balanced, approach, presented in a well-researched, accessible, and, enjoyable format. I like this book: a lot -- Robert Kelsey Confidence nails it - read this book and you will never look at the concept of self-esteem the same way again -- Laura Vanderkam Persuasive ... fantastically sensible -- Lucy Kellaway * 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 -- Heidi Grant Halvorson 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, author of 'The Highly Sensitive Person' and 'The Undervalued Self'
