I was excited to see that audible had a book about imposter syndrome, even if it the title hinted at a specific target audience. Young knows the book is meant for women, but hints toward it being helpful for men as well. There are some helpful tips and stories that help. But young has a very strong pro women agenda. Much of the book is about men versus women, not people with imposter syndrome versus people without. Phrases like “the out and out confidence of the ignorant is gendered.” “Men’s unsupported confidence.” “Don’t let male hyperconfidence let you miss out on imposter busting.”
I couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable at times, like this is not meant for me. Much of what is said is true, but is generalized off of majority statistics. Women do this and men do this. So I really like parts of the book, but the degree of feminism is prevalent in this book. Not a bad book. But the bias is strong
Insightful in explaining both my own and other's behavior. Backed with lots of empirical research and practical concrete steps you can take to improve your own unhelpful habits.
