Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The Confidence Code belongs in the bagof every woman in America. It combines groundbreaking scientific research and firsthand accounts from the world’s most powerful woman.” (Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief, Cosmopolitan)

“How do we make the most of our talents, skills, and interests? This book demonstrates that it’s not enough to know what we’re doing; our confidence is a key factor in our success. Fascinating reading for every woman who wants to take her life to the next level.” (Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project)

“All too often, even the most successful women have indicated that their confidence is fleeting or domain-specific. The gifted authors who were behind Womenomics prove that can change. Discover how you can specifically develop that enduring sense of self-assurance in this remarkable book.” (Marshall Goldsmith, author of the international bestseller What Got You Here Won't Get You There)

“Kay and Shipman shine a perceptive light on the crucial role that confidence plays in the ability of women to succeed. They offer women practical advice and the vision of a more hopeful future.” (Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, and author of Lean In)

“Kay and Shipman provide a great blueprint for raising daughters….All of this research, as well as the authors’ own recounting of experiences with doubt in their professional lives, effectively builds into a comprehensive set of ingredients for the confident woman.” (Publishers Weekly)

“An insightful look at how internalizing cultural stereotypes can hold women back from competing with men.” (Kirkus)

“[Kay and Shipman] have written an enlightening, fascinating book that explains the relationship between confidence, resilience, risk and reward….This book can definitely help you learn to boost your confidence.” (Success)

“[Kay and Shipman dive] into tons of fascinating research and stats that are worth reading…[b]ut most importantly, the book provides some seriously actionable advice from some of the most successful women in the world (authors included).” (

Présentation de l'éditeur

Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their career.

Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to "lean in."Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve.

Recommended to me and I have recommended it to others. Its easy to read lightness does not distract from the gravity of the topic or the quality of the research. The central message is clear, feels honest and importantly feels believable and achievable. One of those 'every young woman should read' books. Equally useful to those of us who are still 17, but only inside!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Confidence Code 22 mai 2014
Par GrannyJo - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I would like to see everyone who teaches even one girl, young woman, adult female, etc. read this book. We need, desperately, to change the way women think of themselves. It took nearly 80 years for me to gain the self-confidence that my brothers seem to have inherited along with other genes. We must do better. There is a great deal of evidence to support my contention that our mental capacity is as good as or greater than our male counterparts. Let's do whatever is necessary to keep our females acting this truth. This book is a great beginning! Jo Seier-Doofe

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's not a total waste, but not very helpful 28 juin 2014
Par Bpollen - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm suspicious of some of the five star reviews of this book. If you check out their total reviews, for many this is their only review, and for others, they have just 2 or 3 reviews, all 5 star. And they gush a bit too much about this book. I'm having difficulty getting through this book because it's boring. It's mainly stories about wealthy, highly educated women, or celebrities, who expressed at some point that they felt lucky or unworthy, etc. There are other things in the book, and it is enlightening in some respects. But it's not geared toward helpful advice for the average woman. I agree with the several other reviews for this book that say much the same thing as I am saying. It's not a total waste of money, and if the stats apply to you, you may find it more applicable to yourself.

I did find one thing in the book that I am using, which is that women apologize all the time, whether it's justified or not. I've noticed that I do the same, so am trying to alter this. The response has not been great. The problem is, and perhaps the reason why, women appear to lack confidence and apologize, is because the response when they don't do that is not good. The goal is to get certain things, whether it's a job or a raise or congeniality in the office. I believe that women have learned how to win the end game through experience, and that experience has shown that the best way to do this is to APPEAR more subserviant and pleasant than you are. I saw a documentary once about how girl toddlers & boy toddlers are treated differently, and wondered why girls cry more than boys. You could see in the test that when girl toddlers cried in a child pen area, they got picked up more often than the boys did when they cried. So the girls learned that to cry is to get the result desired, and boys learned that crying did them no good. So the accomplished women in this book, for all their assertions that they attribute their success to luck or whatever, actually did achieve what they wanted, using precisely the things that this book is saying not to use.

Maybe the book changes a bit in the second half. If so, I'll update this review. Don't get me's interesting. Just not a practical guide for the average American woman.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Zen and the art of confidence 15 avril 2014
Par Cynthia Mckee - Publié sur
Format: CD
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 definately a book that will be greatly talked about, learned from and enjoyed. I highly recommend it!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Reminds me of Kanter's book, Confidence 17 avril 2014
Par Quinn - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The fundamentals of the newer book were captured nearly a decade ago by Rosabeth Moss Kanter's book, Confidence. Compared to The Confidence Code, Kanter's book is more academic but (my opinion here) more interesting and extremely well-researched. Kanter's approach includes both genders, and she uses a lot of sports and corporate examples.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Mixed bag 5 août 2014
Par Annette Seidenglanz - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I really valued this book for the research presented on brain function and confidence -- particularly as it applies to women. It opened the door to further reading for me and new questions about the science of emotion as it applies to women living in Western societies.

The narrative focus on the lives of the authors in some chapters - particularly the last ones - was unhelpful as I am not able to value accurately statements the authors made on their own behalf and which were full of generalities and judgemental remarks.

The women interviewed briefly who represented the ideal success model were indeed extraordinary but certainly not a representative sample -- more like a chat with friends. Perhaps one in depth interview with a particularly good example of nature and nurture traits as they played out would be more inspirational.

One question that hangs in the air: Is success as a woman, defined by the achievement of feminist ideals, the same as gaining prestige in the form of fame, money and power? What about women who prevail with qualities that are remarkable but never accomplish any of these things in their lifetime?

The strongest part of this investigation into confidence is the interviews with researchers and the explanation of how these breakthroughs translate into personality traits. I left this book wanting to know more on that subject.
