Id just gone freelance after many years working in TV industry, and I have to say that I have found this book an insightful and refreshing read free of obscure jargon, while heavy on real easily actioned nuggets of wisdom and practical exercises.Its that rare book, that I am happy to admit I carry with me almost daily now.
I always find myself referring to it and using the confidence toolbox in everyday life to great effect... And for the price I am confident that its a steal! S. C. BonnerThis book is full of basic, yet practical tips that will little by little build your confidence... A practical and simply written book for anyone wishing to nurture their sense of self.
