Review

In The Confidence Code, Kay and Shipman train a gimlet eye on an unspoken problem among women at all levels of achievement-nagging self-doubt...The pair embark on an engrossing trek through interviews with an array of successful women and seek the counsel of behavioral experts.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

[Kay and Shipman] have written an enlightening, fascinating book that explains the relationship between confidence, resilience, risk, and reward...This book can definitely help you learn to boost your confidence.

-- "Success magazine"

[Kay and Shipman dive] into tons of fascinating research and stats that are worth reading...[b]ut most importantly, the book provides some seriously actionable advice from some of the most successful women in the world (authors included).

-- "Self magazine"

Kay and Shipman provide a great blueprint...All of this research, as well as the authors' own recounting of experiences with doubt in their professional lives, effectively builds into a comprehensive set of ingredients for the confident woman.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Women lack the kind of self-assertiveness and self-confidence that propel their male counterparts forward, and the authors examine the reasons behind this phenomenon...An insightful look at how internalizing cultural stereotypes can hold women back from competing with men.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

The Confidence Code belongs in the bag of every woman in America. It combines groundbreaking scientific research and firsthand accounts from the world's most powerful women.

-- "Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief, Cosmopolitan"

How do we make the most of our talents, skills, and interests? This book demonstrates that it's not enough to know what we're doing; our confidence is a key factor in our success. Fascinating reading for every woman who wants to take her life to the next level.

-- "Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project"

Kay and Shipman shine a perceptive light on the crucial role that confidence plays in the ability of women to succeed. They offer women practical advice and the vision of a more hopeful future.

-- "Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In"

All too often, even the most successful women have indicated that their confidence is fleeting or domain-specific. The gifted authors who were behind Womenomics prove that can change. Discover how you can specifically develop that enduring sense of self-assurance in this remarkable book.

-- "Marshall Goldsmith, author of the international bestseller What Got You Here Won't Get You There"

With an obvious command of her craft, Sandy Rustin's performance is notable not only for the easy-to-hear sweetness of her voice but also for her keen ability to sound more assertive when the authors have an important point to make. Her approach commands respect and makes this timely book sound as empowering as it is enlightening. With its colorful stories of women in a variety of professional fields, this is a smoothly written and helpful examination of how pervasive self-doubt is among women, especially in the subtle ways they overthink performance situations, fear conflict and disapproval, and have trouble recovering from defeat and failure.

-- "AudioFile"

Product Description

Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling 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.
