Summary

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.

Warning: This book does not include hopeful thoughts, lucky charms and cute quotes. That's because success, happiness and everything else you want in life needs to be fought for - not wished for. In Lilly's world, there are no escalators. Only stairs.

The best thing to listen to while working! 👌🏻

Written in an entirely colloquial manner, this how-to guide to life transfers perfectly to the audiobook format. Full of inspiration and a slice of motivation too. 100% recommended.

Love this Book!!!

Love this book so much. Lilly read this book amazingly. I am a person who always has way too many things going on in her life between a 29 hr college week in lectures alone not counting study and projects, a part time job and friends who always seem to have some sort of crises ( proper crises tbf), my stress levels are though the roof and the things i want always seem to land flat on there face. But since listening and reading her book i have managed to get all that under control, I'm able to prioritise better and say no, stay motivated and take the hits better and get up faster. The only thing i regret about this book is not having it in my life sooner , i am definitely gonna get all my friends to read this because i truly think there's something for everyone in this book.

Thanks Lilly
xx

well written and narrated

lilly Singh has done an excellent job expressing, marketing and narrating this book. It lives upto the hype. The book certainly has an edge over other self improvement genre for Millennial references with a hint of humour can easily qualify as a defining style of its era.
Lilly Singh goes very personal sharing story of depression- a growing epidemic and how she overcame it. Inspiring and understandable to young readers. it s a5 on 5.

I am very pleasantly surprised by this book!

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.😃

Listen to this without bias

I was skeptical about buying this book as it was colorful(nothing wrong with that), had a picture of Lilly on every other page, and very less prose.
Also, from the looks of it, the book felt like it was meant for a different demographic.

So, naturally, I didn't buy it.
However, I listened to the audiobook.
Personally, I loved listening to the book in her own voice.
Nothing different from other self-help books, but if you're a superwoman fan, you'll like the "out of the blue" chapters, where she compares her life before and after her success.

Great for listening while traveling.
Instant mood lifter, if that's even a thing.
Kudos.
