Publisher's Summary

Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the best-selling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence - and learning how to achieve it - for women of all ages and at all stages of their career.

Working women today are better educated and more well-qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition - with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business - Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to "lean in". Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Not really teaching you how to be confident

This book is pretty useless if you are searching to build confidence it really only compares women and men in the workplace

Not recommended

Found the book quite depressing as it emphasised the genetic and environmental predisposition for females to be less confident than males. Depressing as it added another barrier to women having leadership roles unless much more effort is put in. Did not find motivating as emphasised the negatives.

A Confidence Boost for Everyone!

I can't recommend "The Confidence Code" enough! As a psychotherapist and counselor working with women facing confidence challenges, this book has become an invaluable resource. What sets it apart is its solid foundation in science, making it a reliable guide for understanding and enhancing confidence.

The engaging narration by the actress adds an extra layer of brilliance. Her dynamic delivery not only captures your attention but also transforms the information into a captivating experience. It's like having a personal cheerleader guiding you through the journey of boosting confidence.

Whether you're a professional like me or just someone on a quest for self-improvement, this book is a must-read. It's informative, empowering, and delivered with a level of enthusiasm that makes learning about confidence an enjoyable adventure.

Definitely a five-star gem! Highly recommended!

Appealing to every woman's inner-geek

I loved this book. The interview subjects are impressive and the facts and figures, combined with the authors' humanity with their shared experiences, make this a must read/listen for all women. It is exciting to know that young women today can apply the basics that are unveiled through the excellent story-telling, and can become their best selves. For me, I have stumbled across the same basics in a round-about way, and I'm in my late forties. I can only imagine what life would be like if I knew all this back when I was in my 20's! The conclusions are logical - a lot could be commom sense really! Allow your inner-geek to embrace this guidance and go ahead and unlock YOUR confidence code.
