Quotes & Awards

  • The Confidence Course offers practical advice on how to embrace your fears and move beyond them.”

    John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

  • “Anderson offers concrete suggestions for how to learn from your mistakes, how to hold people's attention and earn respect, how to define success in a meaningful way, and how to live a full and fulfilling life. A tall order? Absolutely, but Anderson is so specific and experienced, so focused on strengths instead of weaknesses, he generates a palpable aura of reasonableness, and readers can't help but feel hopeful.”


  • The Confidence Course is a gift to readers who hunger for hope and self-confidence. They will find, as I did, solutions to seemingly impossible problems drawn from Anderson’s struggles to overcome fear and conquer anger and stress. And they will encounter the transforming power behind the author’s enormous success.”

    Fulton Oursler, Jr. editor, Guideposts

  • “Walter Anderson is indeed a remarkable storyteller. He guides us through the journey of a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who tackles his anxieties to achieve personal and professional success.

The Confidence Course is an inspiring and essential reading experience.”

    Dr. Judy Kuriansky, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Tantric Sex
