Book Review: What's Holding You Back?

October 20, 2009

This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.


“Confidence is not a mysterious characteristic we’re born with or not, and it’s not a result of extraordinary success, accessible only to an exalted few who achieve superhuman feats.”

Sam Horn is one of my favorite writers, and I breeze through any of her work that I get my hands on.

What’s Holding You Back? is a book mostly about confidence — where it comes from, what adds to it, what blocks it, and how to get (more of) it. I’m a supremely confident person, and this book enriched many of my predispositions about how our thoughts shape our actions.

The book’s format — headers followed by a few paragraphs — helped a lot with how fats I got through 337 pages. It is written to be consumed over a 31-day period, but I took about 14.
