Sincero, a success coach and motivational speaker, follows up the bestselling You Are a Badass with this peppy, if slightly flaky, envision-yourself-rich guide. Sincero, a freelance writer who was perpetually broke well into her 40s, describes working hard to change her attitude and get past her mental blocks about money and her own ability to attract it, earn it, and keep it. She guides readers through a similar process of cultivating a mindset conducive to garnering wealth. Her self-help approach asks readers to believe in the kindness of the universe (or a higher power), cultivate self-honesty, visualize success, meditate, and repeat affirmations. Backed up with success stories from those who’ve taken her advice, Sincero counsels readers that the secret to success is inside them—and the universe is on their side. Her friendly, cheeky tone should appeal to existing fans and younger get-rich-quick seekers, though the visualization message feels a bit too dated to garner a whole new audience. Agent: Peter Steinberg, Foundry Literary + Media. (Apr.)“Hilarious . . . This book truly crystallizes the concept that financial abundance is an inside job—in that it all begins with your mindset—and Sincero gets serious (in the funniest ways possible) about helping you identify your particular limiting beliefs surrounding money.”

In this follow-up to You Are a Badass, life coach and speaker Sincero takes on money and wealth. Contrary to popular belief, money is not good or bad. Rich people are not evil. It's OK to love money. It's even possible to attract it, and there's more than enough to go around. In summation: you can make money…if you could only just get over yourself. Sincero shares numerous, quotable anecdotes in her signature witty, yet self-deprecating, style as we follow her from living in a one-car garage to her current success. Each chapter includes exercises and mantras for obtaining wealth while having fun in the process. This is not a practical, numbers-crunching guide for readers seeking advice on selecting mutual funds or how to pay off debt. Instead, Sincero explores intangible forces that influence our financial habits and beliefs, including circumstances, faith, and gratitude. By changing your internal dialog and surroundings, asserts the author, you can tap into the universe's energy to overcome crippling excuses that prevent you from becoming wealthy. VERDICT "Badasses" will be inspired by this feisty, unconventional guide to crafting a prosperous life (and bank account).—Jennifer Clifton, Indiana State Lib., Indianapolis
