Overall the content was strong. Gives some basic cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques that were a helpful refresher for me as I'm already familiar with some of these ideas. The author seemed genuine and shared stories both about himself and his clients that helped to illustrate his points. He also had a fun sense of humor which made the material more engaging.
That said, his naivite belied him at times such as when he presupposed throughout the book that the reader was a man. As a coach he ought to have known that his ideas were applicable to both sexes and that women can struggle with social anxiety and confidence just as much as men. It disrupted the flow to hear him make references to the reader being a man and it just came across as sexist and myopic. If men were his target audience the title of the book should have been "Unleash your confidence as a man."
I found that he could have enunciated more, particularly at the end of sentences when his voice dropped off unprofessionally. Otherwise as a narrator he was refreshing and easy to listen to.

There was some really good information in this book, but it sounds like every other recipe that every other self help book offers. If you haven't listened to any other books on building your self confidence, then this might be an option for you. Also, I found the author repeting the same idea over and over again. It's appropriate in this context (that of self-love, self-affirmations), but I found it to be a bit too much. A perfect example of what this book is, is at the very beginning - the author mentions a gentleman he worked with that was very shy, and that man overcame his shyness, using the methods he lays out in this book. He could have just told me quickly what they were, and then spent the rest of the book explaining - that would have put it all in contexr.
