Okay, summary of self help and confidence theories,
This review is from: What's Stopping You Being More Confident? (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book was quite readable.We were led to believe that despite being a PR guru and former banker that the writer - Robert Kelsey is in fact a shy flower. Having identified with us to gain our confidence he then proceeds to basically summarise a lot of other theories and tips put forward in self help books such as Covey's the 7 habits of successful people, Carol Dweck's Growth Mindset and many others. As a summary of the theories out there it was rather good.
It went a bit awry for me when he concentrated for a few chapters on confidence in the workplace and how to network at work events. There was also a quite "light" chapter on depression - "...it can even last up to few weeks" !!! how about years. Not bad and actually quite theory dense.
