224 pages ~ ★★★★☆ ~ Netgalley eARC
I actually first heard of Imposter Syndrome earlier this year when my manager said he’d really like to see me be able to get past my imposter syndrome; following that meeting I did a bit of research and had to admit that it did align quite well with how I sometimes feel. I mentioned that I’d been given access to an advanced copy of book called Why Do I Feel Like an Imposter and its already proven to be a great conversation starter.
Have you ever had a small voice inside you telling you that a recent success was down to luck rather than hard work? Have you ever felt nervous that someone else is going to find out you that you have no idea what you’re doing? Then you could have experiences Imposter Syndrome; personally I’ve mainly felt this way in my work place and while that’s common there are so many other angles I hadn’t considered, particularly around a male experience as well parenthood.
This is a great guide to something that affects so many people, whether you feel like this aligns to you, someone you know or if you’ve been cheerfully oblivious to the fact that some people live part or all of their lives feeling like ‘frauds’ then I think there’s something to be gained from this book. It includes quizzes to help separate the core different variations and if you think you align to one or more it even has suggestions for how to start overcoming those feelings.
Released on 10th September you can pre-order Why Do I Feel Like an Imposter? now, Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with a copy this in exchange for an honest review.
