Inspired by great figures from Emerson and Nietzsche to Madonna and Serena Williams, this engaging philosophical essay explores the workings of self-confidence and how to develop it.

Where does self-confidence come from? How does it work? What makes it stronger or weaker? Why are some people more confident than others? Is it only a question of temperament or the result of conscious self-improvement? How do you get closer to those who stand out thanks entirely to their confidence in themselves?

Drawing on philosophical texts, ancient wisdom, positive psychology, and a wide range of case studies that feature famous thinkers, artists, and athletes, but also unsung heroes like a fighter pilot and an urgent care doctor, Charles Pépin brings to light the strange alchemy that is self-confidence. By doing so, he gives us the keys to having more confidence in ourselves.

Charles Pépin is a philosopher and novelist, translated into some thirty countries. He is the author of Philosophers on the Couch, When Beauty Saves Us and Joy. His latest essay, The Virtues of Failure, sold over 65,000 copies and was translated into thirteen countries. With the designer Jul, Charles published the best sellers The Planet of the Wise and 50 Shades of Greeks. He is also the organizer of Lundis Philo at [email protected] Odéon in Paris.

Willard Wood is the winner of the 2002 Lewis Galantière Award for Literary Translation and a 2000 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Translation. He lives in Connecticut.
