Dare to Be You is all about beating Kid Doubt to give us the confidence to be ourselves.

So who is Kid Doubt? 

Syed explains that we ALL have a Kid Doubt inside us. When we think "there is no point trying to change things" or "I wish I could be more like other people", and we give up, we are succumbing to Kid Doubt.

The simple tips are perfect for kids. Things like changing the language we use can have such a big impact on the way you think, feel and act.

The other important message in the book is that it pays to be different. 

This is something kids often hear, but Matthew Syed backs it up with real-life examples and statistics. For example, did you know that you are more likely to be an entrepreneur if you are dyslexic? Or that more than HALF of the top 35 companies in the USA were founded by immigrants?

Being different even makes you more likely to win a Nobel Prize!
