“Brag Better will change your life. It took me an extraordinarily long time to write my first book because anytime I wrote anything positive about myself, I would edit the sentence to death because I didn’t want to seem egotistical. FORGET THAT! Brag Better will help you get the results of bragging — without changing your personality.”
–Alyssa Mastromonaco, Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff to President Obama, author of Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
“Not all of us come into the world with the self-assurance we need to share our ideas, and it can be infuriating to watch overconfidence pay off while merit goes unrewarded, especially for the most marginalized in our society.

–Liz Plank, author of For the Love of Men
