I enjoyed that they covered what seems like all aspects which made their conclusions all the more convincing. From genetics and epigenetics, to external factors like up-bringing and internal factors like the conscious and subconscious workings of the brain and its biology. Also splashed with thoughts from some of the stellar examples from sports, international executives and the military. Recommended read for any woman, young or old.
As a psychologist and the author of a self help guide for career transition, I know the field the book covers well.
I can truly say that the Confidence Code is excellently researched and written and it is a great read ! Women all over the world will be able to identify with Kathy and Claire- even if they are truly high powered professionals, I believe most women and many men will learn a lot about themselves, about their work partners and life partners by reading this very dense book. I read the book in a few hours- how frustrating when one knows how long it takes to write it ! Kathy and Claire have written a Page turner which will turn lives into honey from lemon... WIth a pinch of: humor, gratitude, resilience, training, rewiring (of the brain), self compassion and turning ANTS (Anticipated Negative Thoughts) into PETS (Positive Expected Thoughts) your life WILL be different. Allow yourself to discard the ton of "stones" blocking your creativity and your potential and embrace a virtuous life style. Yes you can and this book will help you get started !
