This book is a must read for women and girls of all ages. Most of us are well aware of the imposter syndrome (even if we didn’t realize it had been scientifically documented) but the science and research about women and confidence extends far beyond that. Shipman and Kay have taken all the available information, both documented and anecdotal, and distilled it into a lively and compelling read. I expected to find the book enlightening. I didn’t expect to find it so entertaining. Even better, the authors don’t stop at pointing out the shortcomings women have in the confidence arena, but offer ways to overcome them. The book is both informative and useful, and readers will walk away with tools to transform their own behavior.

The Confidence Code does not disappoint!  There are key insights found in the interviews that give  a fresh perspective to a sisterhood of insecurity and how to successfully deal with it.  The research regarding  confidence leads the reader to develop personalized conclusions which can be carried into either  domestic or professional spheres.

My curiosity was piqued immediately. Do I focus on competence over confidence? And what really is confidence anyway. In "The Confidence Code," written with great insight, openness and a thoughtful and measured approach, the authors demystify the value of confidence in the marketplace and in everyday life and why it is some of us have it and some us don't. Mixing the right levels of science, intrigue, example, humor and humility--they even go as far as personal genetic testing to see how they fare on the confidence scale--the reader has all the available wisdom to "crack" the confidence code and better understand its impact on just about everything we do. Personally, I found myself listening to conversations in a different way--did a woman at my table just say "he was acting just like a woman and apologizing for everything all the time" --and thinking about my own effectiveness at work and with people in general. It was surprising. This is definitely a book that will be greatly talked about, learned from and enjoyed. I highly recommend it!

It has very good content, several examples and even some scientific data. At the end of the book it starts to get a little redundant so that's why I'm giving it 4 stars...

I loved this book. It’s fun to read and at the same time provides some practical advice. It reminds of another very practical and interesting book I read recently Secret Techniques for Controlling Sadness, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, and Other Emotions by Vlad Koros, which deals with self-confidence as well as many other emotional issues. I highly recommend both these books.
