You Are Awesome

Find Your Confidence and Dare to be Brilliant at (Almost) Anything

By Matthew Syed

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A positive and empowering guide to help children build resilience, 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?

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 author Matthew Syed, it uses examples of successful people from Mozart to David Beckham 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, 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.

Grab yourselves a copy folks, this is wonderful and insightful. #youareawesome #2daystogo #childrensbooks — Giles Paley-Phillips @eliistender10, Instagram
I think this book is awesome. It is easy to read and very gripping. The things it teaches you are great life skills that can be applied to almost everything. The fact that it is written in a fun jovial manner make it easy to read even for people who aren't big readers. — William, age 12, Lovereading4kids
I loved this book. Easy to read and easily relatable. Even my dyslexic son who isn't a fan of reading has read it. It is a page turner and so positive. It really encourages children to be the best at whatever it is they want to do in life. — Lindsey (William's mum), Lovereading4kids
I loved this book. 'You Are Awesome' really builds your confidence and shows you how the right mind-set can help you achieve your dreams. I learned so much from this book. It shows that you have to be brave, prepare for failure and have self-belief. I really liked the stories about famous people and their struggles and failures on the way to success. It just shows that anyone can follow their dreams and be totally awesome and that it is possible to excel at anything with dedication, practise and a lot of hard work. The book breaks the process of becoming awesome into different areas and starts with explaining how the author mastered table tennis and had to learn the skills he needed to become the best. He addresses many of the excuses we make to not push ourselves and how we can overcome them. The illustrations are brilliant and make the book even more interesting. I will definitely be using some of the principles in this book to tackle some everyday challenges and other bigger ones too. A definite must read for anyone who wants to achieve more with their lives and build their confidence. — Ella, age 13, Lovereading4kids
This book is about making your life awesome, encouraging a growth mindset and marginal gain, so that you can become Kid Awesome instead of Kid Normal. The book has lots of stories about people who keep going when something is hard. Marginal gain is like when you break a big goal down into smaller parts, so that you can do things that will get you a little bit closer to your goal, until finally, you get to the goal itself. The illustrations are more than awesome - double-times awesome, and they are funny, too, they play on words. The book made me feel more confident in everything I do, and I think it can help other children, too. It makes you think about making up new rules when old rules don't fit, and think about things from different angles to find solutions. The book explains that working hard helps you in achieving your goals, and is really inspiring. I loved it! — Toby, age 10, Lovereading4kids
I was a bit reluctant to read the book as I normally only read story books.My dad persuaded me and said it would help me with my football and it would help me to be braver at trying new things. I enjoyed the book and think I can use some of the ideas like challenging my elastic brain! I will use this book again and again and think I will now try new things when asked as a result. If you are a bit nervous or unsure of trying new things then I think you should read this book and it will help you to try and be awesome!The book isn't what I would usually read but I gave it a go and I think it's actually quite good. I don't like change but think I will now be more open to trying lots of things because of the book. — Ethan, age 10, Lovereading4kids
I read this book after my 10 year old son had finished it. The book is a great read and I think it is something that will really help him develop and progress as he grows. I have also taken on board some of the advice and think it will help me as well as my son. I would urge every parent to get this book and to learn that everyone can be awesome! — Ian (Ethan's dad), Lovereading4kids
I loved this! The book was so inspirational in many ways that I loved, it made me laugh - like digging that hole to Australia, that made me chuckle. I loved the bit about the block running track, and how Matthew smashed his brother's record! Definitely a 5 star rating! — Libby, age 10, Lovereading4kids
As a mum of four girls of quite varying ages I have seen over the year the pressures that have mounted on children to be perfect almost without even trying. They wanted to grow up to be on X factor or stars of Youtube like Dan TDM who got rich playing games with seemingly no work involved. This is why I loved this book so much, it shows you that no one is really an overnight success, it peels back the curtains on the efforts you have to make to succeed and most of all it promotes active confidence in the abilities you have instead of endlessly comparing yourselves to others who have it so much better (on the surface!). I loved seeing my daughter race through this book and become inspired to be the best version of her that she could be and work smarter, not harder. It is for any child who might be feeling that everyone is getting places except them, who doesn't feel good enough and challenges the thing that holds you back (mostly your own insecurities). I loved this book and Libby cannot wait to take it into school and share it with her classmates. — Rachel (Libby's mum), Lovereading4kids
This book is AWESOME! This book has boosted my confidence! Before I read 'You are Awesome', I had a Fixed Mind-set but now I have a Growth Mind-set! Some famous people have also made mistakes or have been rejected, like J K Rowling, who was rejected by 32 publishers with her first Harry Potter book. This book teaches you that some things don't always go to plan but you must never give up! Imagine if J K Rowling had given up? There would be no books, no films, no Harry Potter World ... nothing! The book also ties in with the National Curriculum. My school talks about having a Growth Mind-set a lot! I give this book 5/5 and recommend it to 8+ children. I also think that adults and teachers should read it too! This book will boost your confidence at home and at school. — Daniel, age 10, Lovereading4kids
'You are Awesome' is a really good book, it teaches you to be really positive and look at life a bit differently. It starts with telling you how one kid ordinary became kid awesome. It says a lot about changing the way you think about things so that you are not negative or stopping yourself from doing things because you have a closed mind. My mum and I read through this book together and we both really liked it. It's not like most other books I've read that are either stories or facts. Mum thinks my brothers should read it as well as they are in year 10 and 11 doing their exams soon. — Bella, age 10, Lovereading4kids
'You are Awesome' is a fantastic self-help book for kids. My husband and I have constantly referred to having a positive mental attitude, whilst bringing up our children and strongly believe success comes through hard work. 'You are Awesome' backs this up completely. The main message that with hard work, dedication and the right mind-set children will achieve is such a positive message. The chapter on failure is fantastic also, reminding the reader that they will mess up but this is okay. This book is positive and empowering and there should be copies in all school libraries. — Krissy (Bella’s mum), Lovereading4kids
I loved the book because it was written by someone who had worked hard to achieve his dreams, so he knew what he was writing about. I loved the way the book was written in a way kids understand, it was funny and spaced out with pictures. My best bits were the examples of great people who had failed. It's made a difference to the way I approach my school work and I am sure I will go back to it again' — Oliver, age 10, Lovereading4kids
I liked the book because it made me think about alternative positive changes I could make to my negative ways of thinking e.g.: I am not so good at sport, how could I do better rather than think I am rubbish all the time? I loved the famous people bit. I found the examples inspiring. The book was very easy to read and I liked it a lot. — Emily, age 15, Lovereading4kids
I think this book is really good. I have two different types of children one with a more positive mind-set than the other. For both it has been helpful but more so for my ten year old son who struggles with believing he can achieve things if they don't happen straight away. This book is written in such a way that he can relate to it and laugh at the same time. There is humour as well as knowledge and it's separated by amusing pictures. My son has got a lot out of the lessons learnt by those that have gone before him and failed and made him realise he can achieve things with hard work. I think this book will be one that the kids will dip into in those times when they are struggling with stuff at school and out of school and one I would certainly recommend to friends. — Katie (Emily and Oliver’s mum), Lovereading4kids
This book was awesome - just like it says on the front cover. I liked the front cover, it was appealing and made me want to pick the book up. It tells you about growth mind-set and that's what I'm learning about in school. It was a bit confusing when it said stuff like 'kid average', 'kid A' and 'kid awesome'. I like how the book is different and the colours they used black, white and yellow. The last page is the best because it has a picture of Kid Awesome's destination in life - a table tennis player. — Jamila, age 9, Lovereading4kids
An inspiring, uplifting read. I wish I'd had it as a kid. — Dermot O'Leary
An awesome book about becoming awesome. How inspiring it is to know that there's a path to awesomeness and that anyone - absolutely anyone - can go down that path. This book shows you how. — Professor Carol Dweck
This positive and empowering guide, by bestselling mindset author Matthew Syed, will help children build resilience, fulfil their potential and become successful, happy, awesome adults - it is a must read.
