In looking for reviews about this book, I noticed most of the comments are by many of Lilly s passionate fans who admit to not having read the book yet If you want to hear an honest review about the content of the book, continue reading below Overall, this was a quick and simple read Each of the 50 chapters are short and to the point, maybe 5 pages each at most However, I also thought this may have been one of the reasons I couldn t give the book a higher rating Singh offers a lot of great advic [...]
Punky enough to get to my reading list Not coherent enough to get a higher rating from me All the Youtube references soon got irritating if I want Youtube, I won t be reading a book, I ll switch to Youtube, thank you All the graphics were a bit much too much Generally, I prefer my books to be well rounded and substantial This book had a hell of a lot of promise and underdelivered in a drastic way The girl spends entirely too much time on internet and videos I do realise it s her work but it sho [...]
THIS BOOK IS GOLD IT HELPS ME SO MUCH Just when I needed it the most, reading this book is like having Lilly near you as a friend and a supporter to reassure you and guide you through your life I believe we all learn best from our own experience and this memoir a personal coach speaking from her own experience and the result is amazing.The writing TOTALLY HONEST TO HER STYLE It s funny, witty and familiar She doesn t need to pretend to be someone else, speaking like Shakespeare or whatever She g [...]
I thought this was cheesy, annoying, and overdone even BEFORE she made some ridiculous crack about millenials being entitled, which is such a trite thing to say that ignores all social, political, and financial nuance that I am not even going to get into it I enjoyed her story about Selena Gomez and the importance of authenticity but of course she wasn t going to bring attention to all the ways Selena Gomez is highly problematic including her bullshit Indian Tribal cultural association bullshit [...]
I first discovered Lilly Singh aka iiSuperwomanii at 14 in December 2013, with her video Things Students Lie About Ever since then, I ve laughed and truly enjoyed watching her content, seeing as she s grown into a powerhouse in the YouTube community I remember a period of time where I watched a collection of her videos before I went to bed every night because they relaxed me enough to go to sleep She made me discover the side of YouTube where creators roam and helped me know what to watch in tha [...]
Actual review 1.75This was the kind of book that is entertaining but hollow The pearls of wisdom are really just a few sayings here and there that seem good when you listen to it in a hilarious voice, but without that element, it falls flat The humour was the only somewhat redeeming quality of this book that stopped me from giving it a one star review It lacks depth and it lacks interest It makes it seem like barely any effort went into creating this book It s far from memorable Even as I write [...]
2 starsQuick too simple chapters I would have liked a bit , well a lot time spent on her advice It read like a list that I could find online lacking most of her charm Yes, there was some there, but it was so brief I bought this for my daughters but ended up reading it after they didn t finish it All of us were disappointed, it was too little substance and a lot of cheesy lines Where was the life changing advice
Okay here s the deal I love Lilly Singh I am a big fan of hers and I watch all her videos.That being said, I do NOT worship the ground she walks on I m NOT approaching this book and review as a fangirl and I am NOT approaching it as a biased party Part of this may have to do with the fact that she stated in a video several years ago that she doesn t believe in global warming I don t know if this opinion has changed as of late, but it made me lose some respect for her.I think this book is genuine [...]
This book deserves a glowing review I hope I managed to do justice This is the second book by a You Tuber that I m reading and I have to say, I am definitely glad I picked this up.Adult life is messy, between your professional and personal worlds you are caught in this whirlwind and stuck in this maze, trying to figure your way through it For a young adult it can be all too much and all too easy to simply lose your way.This is a book for every young adult with stars in their eyes, to take life b [...]
I m not sure how I came across this book I had never heard of Lilly before but I thought her book looked like fun so I checked it out of the library I don t think I m the target audience for this book as she is only 28 years old and I m old enough to be her mother Nevertheless I enjoyed Lilly s take on life and how she became so successful as a YouTube star The book is full of gorgeous pictures of Lilly It was a fun read and she does have some good advice to offer.
This book will not teach you how to conquer life I could finish this book in one day because 1 I was apparently so desperate for any form of motivation that I resorted to an illustrated book filled with platitudes whose targeted audience seems to be teenagers who have way too much money to spare.2 This book was like a series of 10 minute YouTube videos than a profound piece of literature I didn t learn anything I didn t already know from this book except for the fact that it wasn t written by a [...]
Lilly Singh is the only YouTube comedian I ve watched who I actually find funny, so I m really excited to read this.
Entertaining and inspiring.
This was such an amazing and inspiring and motivational book I have been a fan of Lilly a.k.a iiSuperwomanii for the past 4 years and listening to her book narrated by her was an amazing experience Would highly recommend it to people that want to get their lives in order, learn how to focus to achieve their goals, and get their priorities straight A true guide on how to be a Bawse
I am proud of myself for managing to finish this book and not throwing it aside Frankly, this is not what I expected from Lilly Singh Superwoman I really thought that I was going to have a very good time reading this book But I didn t and I am a little bit disappointed.Like many people who live on Youtube, I happen to be a big fan of Lilly Singh and her videos She really does make me laugh and I have a very good time watching her videos And of course, I knew she was releasing a book and that she [...]
I used to like Lilly, I think she s funny, hardworking, nice and honest.But I after I read this, now I LOVE HER Just reading from her point of view and living her adventures since she started doing YouTube and witnessing her journey through all of it, PLUS having her giving advice, and how she s trying to make us learn from her mistakes just made me respect her even .I thought this book is very inspiring and empowering and true to its title , it does give you that push you need to feel that you [...]

My friend went to Lilly s show and got this book She gave it to me as a birthday gift, and until now I haven t had the time to read it I finished it in a few days it was so hard to put down because it s so good.Lilly s an amazing YouTuber She s also an awesome writer And a great Bawse.Lilly s a very successful person and she has lots of friends who are super successful as well In this book, Lilly shares her secrets to success and talks about things that happen in her friends lives Lilly mentions [...]
So, the latest publishing trend seems to be having Youtube stars put out their own books now I haven t read any of them, but I picked up Lily s book because I do watch her channel on occasion.There is nothing new or life changing in Lily s book She gives out some good advice, but the book reads like a Cliff s Notes edition, each chapter is very short and when you start to grasp what she is saying, the chapter is done If felt like of a photo shoot with brief stories in between Yes, the photos we [...]
A Self help book for someone who DOES NOT like Self help books Someone like Me.Lilly Singh is pretty entertaining and one of my favourite YouTuber but I admit that INEVER expected that I would read her book because 1 I dont like Self help books, they are just downright boring and I ve noticed that It doesn t really motivate me long enough to follow it through.2 I never considered Lilly Singh mature enough to be writing a self help book in the first place 3 I have a Mom Who takes that job very se [...]
My favourite Youtuber is going to write a book and I so cannot wait She s been an inspiration and my role model since the beginning of time all I m going to say is that I hope March 28th 2017 comes as soon as possible waits for eternity The truth is, I don t even read biography memoirs that often, although I ve got Scrappy Little Nobody and Buffering on my bucket list Honestly though, if Lilly writes the way she talks in her videos, this is going to be hilarious Anyway, I think I m just going to [...]
I honestly tend to stay away from memoirs, but damn this is Lilly Singh so very obvs I am going to read it I personally am inspired a lot by her, and she is the only YouTuber I watch aside from Booktube ME EXCITE grabby hands but actually I am supposed to be on a book buying ban for now so yeah whelp cries
Bawse is such a brilliant, funny, and empowering book I have about a zillion little sticky tabs throughout this book highlighting Lilly s words of wisdom and advice I ve been watching her videos for years now and her personality just shines through in her book on conquering life I wish some of the chapters were longer, but that s partially because I could read her words all day The 50 chapters connected and built on one another beautifully and were incredibly inspiring to me personally 10 10, wo [...]
The book itself is beautiful the bright photos and quotes make for an enjoyable experience Would have enjoyed seeing meat in the content from Singh s past Some good advice, but the 50 chapters are so short 2 4 pages that it s difficult to get in depth content.
I absolutely LOVED it Lilly is such a cool and down to earth person that I just couldn t help but adore her
You can check out my video review here youtube edit o USo I am proud to say that I am a Lilly Singh fan But as a booklover, I would like to clarify here that this fact did not cloud my judgement about her book As I mentioned in my video review as well, this is not an autobiography I say this because I thought, that maybe this was a book about Lilly s amazing life Thats the reason I had pre ordered it This, instead, is a self help book in which Lilly has imparted her pearls of wisdom regarding wh [...]
This was the perfect motivation book for me because I love Lilly Also, she is wonderful and I admire her perseverance She worked so hard to get to where she is now and she did that on her own and I hope one day, I can do that for myself This is a wonderful book to teach and help someone get to their feet and get their hustle on to dive onto their future It helped me get motivated and deal with all these college and home stress I m currently going through Thank you Lilly and Congratulations We lo [...]
I loved how straight to point and direct this book was I watch Lilly s YouTube videos on occasion and How to Be a Bawse was very authentic to her I really appreciated how you can tell Lilly spent a lot of time on this book and I could tell she actually wrote this book on her own Even if you re not into self help books, I think How to Be a Bawse is worth picking up.
4.5 5 5 stars Definitely one that I ll be picking up here and there in the future full review here bit 2vjxA99
