Insightful and compelling Drop the Bad! Clear Your Way to Success (Lessons From the Experts Book 2) by Sofia Santiago, PhD; Virginia Wells, PhD; Daniela De la Chica is part of a series that collects lessons for success from a wide range of business leaders, authors, motivational speakers, and more. On learning to pick your battles, it puts forward an enlightening discussion that encourages independently considering the importance/insignificance of an issue and the importance/insignificance of the relationship in question. Other sections discuss the secret to happiness and how to eliminate the imposter syndrome. Creating and having a positive self-image is explained as one of the ways to overcome imposter syndrome.

When reading Drop the Bad! I liked that each element of a topic was explored. For instance, when discussing the imposter syndrome, the topic includes a clear, easy-to-understand definition of the syndrome, the symptoms and causes, and specific solutions to the issue. The information presented is applicable to everyone regardless of their background or age. The topics and lessons can also be applied to achieve personal and career success. The work also contains straight-forward illustrations, heartfelt and relatable anecdotes, and useful infographics that help immensely in understanding, applying, and recalling each lesson. The book is also organized into topics with specific sub-titles and clear actionable steps such as when it offers physical and mental steps to strike back at the imposter syndrome. Drop the Bad! contains powerful, life-changing lessons that are useful in creating healthy relationships, dealing with personal issues, and handling work-related matters.
