"Confidence has become the holy grail of modern life"

“Confidence has become the holy grail of modern life” argues a new book from Psychologies Magazine. Many people believe they could do anything they want, if only they could be a bit more comfortable in their own skin.

Based on scientific evidence, cutting edge global research and advice from a range of experts, this book explores the truth about real confidence.

The book helps readers examine how confident they currently are and why they may lack confidence. It considers key factors from genetics to social media to help readers understand the significant role our biology plays on our psychological profile and the relationship between social media and self-worth.  

With tips, quizzes, inspiring case studies and advice, the book will help readers take on ‘confidence robbers’ and embed confidence-building habits into everyday routines.

Whether readers are working towards a work presentation, or preparing to tackle a social situation, the book’s key message is that anyone can raise confidence levels in different areas of their life by taking small steps, having a go at what they find difficult and developing a foundation of real skills.
