An awesome and daring duo of books from bestselling mindset author Matthew Syed, You Are Awesome and Dare to Be You will help boys and girls build confidence, fulfil their potential and become successful, happy, awesome adults.
I'm no good at sport ... I can't do maths ... I really struggle with exams ... Sound familiar? But ... what if you could excel at anything you put your mind to? You Are Awesome can help you do just that. Using examples of famous people from Mozart to Serena Williams, Matthew Syed demonstrates that success is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired with practice and self-belief.
If you're the kind of person who thinks: I don't like standing out from the crowd ... I wish I could be more like the cool kids ... There's no point in trying to change things ... then Dare to Be You is for you. Drawing on examples from sport, science and even business, Dare to Be You empowers young readers to resist peer pressure, follow their own path and love what makes them different.
With their trademark mix of hilarious text, stylish illustrations, personal insights and real-life examples, these practical and positive books introduce children to the powerful concepts of growth mindset, resilience and diverse thinking.
