I'm no good at sport ... I can't do maths ... I really struggle with exams ... Sound familiar? If you believe you can't do something, the chances are you won't try. But what if you really could get better at maths, or sport or exams? In fact, what if you could excel at anything you put your mind to? You Are Awesome can help you do just that, inspiring and empowering young readers to find the confidence to realise their potential. The first children's book from Times journalist, two-time Olympian and best-selling mindset author Matthew Syed, it uses examples of successful people from Mozart to Serena Williams to demonstrate that success really is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired. With hard work and determination, practice and self-belief, and, most importantly, a Growth Mindset, there's no reason why anyone can't achieve anything. Practical, insightful and positive, this is the book to help children build resilience, embrace their mistakes and grow into successful, happy adults. Also available: The You Are Awesome Journal . Whether setting out your goals, planning the best practice ever, keeping calm with breathing exercises or making paper aeroplanes to understand marginal gains, you'll love the brilliant activities in The You Are Awesome Journal - it's the perfect companion to You Are Awesome !

I really liked this book, my son is quite sensitive and struggles with confidence. I bought this book to help him, but it helped me as well. The book is written by Matthew Syed Olympic medal winner in table tennis. He describes how he achieved his Olympic medal and how you can be great at something if you put your mind to it and focus and learn a skill. It’s not a quick fix guide it’s more to do with the way in which we view a failure. My son has the tendency to try a new hobby and not be good at it then never try again. It’s about changing your mind set. I’d recommend it for anybody struggling with self confidence.

This book is Awesome! I was sent this book to review with my little lady (aged 11) and its fantastic.
The idea of the book is to boost self confidence and to empower children to make choices that will improve their life. 
It gives tips on how small changes in your attitude and output will help you change from kids average to kid Awsome.
You are awesome is well laid out and has eye popping diagrams and illustrations in yellow and black, so they really stand out. It contains lots of references to famous people as well as tonnes of facts. 

I probably enjoyed this book more than the little lady because as a parent I want to empower her with as many tools that will help her be successful but I have seen her pick it up without me and it will stay on her reference shelf to look at as she makes her journey to senior school later in the year.

If you have an ambition/goal/dream in your life which seems a million miles away, pick up this book and you are sure to feel positive about it... I got a PB in the sport  I compete in last night and I truly believe I was inspired to get that by this book!! Buy it! You will not be disappointed. My class are already trying to get their hands on the 2 copies I have bought for class.
