My Rating – 4.5/5
“A guide to conquering life. Success and happiness require real effort, dedication and determination. In Lilly’s world there are no escalators, only stairs. Get ready to climb”
I have been a fan of Superwoman a.k.a Lilly Singh for the past four or five years now. I was introduced to her videos through a friend and have been hooked ever since. When she said that she was writing a book I knew I had to get a copy for myself and kept watching her vlogs for regular updates. She is such an inspiration to me and to many around the world.
Coming to the book, just like her videos on YouTube it is funny and inspiring. Written in first person you tend to read it in Lilly’s voice. There are 50 chapters, each around three or four pages long and these cover various things that we all feel in life. The most recurring theme in the book is to be confident in yourself and love yourself no matter what. It is written in such a way that you can pick up the book and read any chapter, whichever you need to read the most at the moment and if needed, you may catch yourself re-reading chapters again and again.
How to be a BAWSE is blunt and straightforward. You hear what needs to be heard and Lilly hasn’t sugar-coated anything. Which is needed when it comes to a self help guide to life. She has covered topics ranging from relationships to workplace situations, personal goals and everything in between!
The book is colorful and the font is big enough for you to read without tiring your eyes. I would not recommend for the reader to rush through the book or to binge read. It is a self help book so it needs to be read in a self paced manner in order for you to make the most of it. If you have been a fan of her and are following her on Youtube then get this book!! Even if you aren’t a fan and haven’t heard of her I’d still recommend this book. It is for everybody and is an enjoyable read.
