Confidence-book-cover“Confidence: overcoming low self-esteem, insecurity, and self-doubt” by Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic
Nonfiction – 3 stars

This is a self-help book that comes down to something that it cannot teach you to do (with good reason) — namely, be competent in order to be confident. The author ensures that we shouldn’t be overconfident either, as low confidence serves its purpose of being realistic about risks and motivating us to act in ways we otherwise might not (e.g. preparing for a presentation). I’m not surprised by anything said in this book, but it serves as a good reminder.
