"Teens (and many an adult reader) who wish to incorporate more confidence into their approaches to life - and who are willing to follow the techniques that will bring them to ultimate success - will find Confidence Your Secret Weapon a real, unique winner."
- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"Ashley identifies characteristics of resilience such as optimism, the ability to regulate one’s emotions, and the capacity to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. The language is simple to understand. Journal exercises and questions, which stimulate self-reflection, are provided in the text. I recommend Confidence Your Secret Weapon for anyone who would like to build or rebuild confidence and self-esteem."
- Aurelia McNeil, Reviewer McNeil's Reviews
"When I started reading Confidence Your Secret Weapon, I thought of studying yet another 'claim your success' self-help guide. Ashley Korin McLean's intentions are to provide hands-on questions and answers to let her readers take a couple of first steps to improve their self-esteem, avoid negative thoughts and develop self-confidence. Success is not made or enforced, failures will come. We all make mistakes, and have to apply coping mechanisms. Positive thinking without action is useless."
