From actress, comedian and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh (aka Superwoman) comes the definitive guide to being a BAWSE - a person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they've fought through it all and made it out the other side. Told in her hilarious, bold voice that's inspired over nine million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no shortcuts to success.

I even have to pause and give it a real review...I didn't know what to expect but the more I listened, the more I could relate and Lilly does have some insightful words of wisdom. Her charm and humour made even the more difficult subjects for me palatable. I have so many favourite chapters but the most recent memorable one is team building ( i.e mind, body and soul must be in sync). Thank you so much Lilly. The superwoman in me thanks you. I will be listening again. You deserve more recognition for this! I hope to hear more from you in future.πŸ˜ƒ

All of us have what it takes to make it in today's competitive and changing world. You may have doubted your ability to get the job done in the past, but something else may have been getting in the way of your success. The key to ultimate achievement has very little to do with your education or skill level. The secret to accomplishing great things is simple: Find and pursue the kind of work you are meant to do - your "purpose."

With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.Β

It was worth the wait. Michelle's story was well written. The audio version read by Michelle herself made me feel more connected to her and her experiences, which made it more personal. She was accessible from my living room sofa and on my busy train commute to and from work.

The detail was very balanced and honest. Although, I was left feeling like there is much more to tell...

I am inspired by Michelle. She is incredibly graceful, an amazing woman, mother, daughter, wife, a minority with a drive to inspire others to BECOME, remain optimist and that no position is too high no matter your background.

I hope Michelle and Barack continue supporting and inspiring others with their charitable, people and community focused causes and spreading that beautiful positive ora they seem to leave every where they go. I look forward to more writing from Michelle!
