That said, I think anyone is able to read it and may draw things from it! It's really about bettering yourself.(less)
More lists with this book...
Are you kidding me?
But despite the cheesiness and silliness that sometimes arises, it is a precious self-help book. It really does give helpful advice and motivates you to wake up at 6 am in the morning to conquer life.
It’s also surprisingly honest. I had no idea who this YouTube sensation was before I started reading the book. And I only cared to check her ...more
Lilly Singh - YouTuber, Late-night Talk-show host and internet personality - has just exploded onto the literary scene with her how-to book.
Think of discomfort as currency- it's the price you pay to learn some pretty crucial things.
Ever wonder how Lilly manages it all?
How she got to the top?
How she keeps herself going despite the incredibly high expectations and stress levels?
Wonder no more.
IF YOU CAN’T CONTROL PEOPLE, THEN CONTROL YOUR REACTION TO THEM. IF YOU CAN’T CONTROL A SITUATION,...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
All the graphics were a bit much too much.
Generally, I prefer my books to be more 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 ...more
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 more 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 ...more
My admiration for Lilly is represented accurately by the water that gushes out of the doors:
I have loved and looked up to Lilly Singh since I was fifteen years old. To see someone that looked like me, conquering YouTube—an industry which prominently featured white men—made me believe that anything was possible (She is called Superwoman for a reason, duh).
Lilly inspired and continues to inspire me and millions of people around the globe with her sense of humor, kindness and #GirlLove. ...more
This 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 ...more
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.
I think this book is ...more
Quick too simple chapters. I would have liked a bit more, well a lot more 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 ?
The book is full of gorgeous pictures of Lilly. It was a fun read and she does have some good advice to offer.
I really enjoyed this book and was able to take a lot away from it.
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 ...more
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 more.
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 ...more
She literally wrote that. Are you kidding me!?!? That is disgusting and I am so sad for all the young women who are going to read that and may be influenced to think they are some how at fault for the actions of an abusive, lying, cheating asshat.
The only reason I finished this book was to help my 2018 Reading Challenge numbers.
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. ...more
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 more of a photo shoot with brief stories in between. Yes, the ...more
Someone like Me.
Lilly Singh is pretty entertaining and one of my favourite YouTuber but I admit that I NEVER 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 ...more

Just because superwoman is a successful youtuber doesn't also make her a life advisor and it definitely doesn't make her a writer. Her book is the proof.
The entire thing is a "guide " on becoming a bawse a word created by her which basically is a boss but better. There are several steps ,described in 2 pages each and 2 more of a title and a picture. So yeah you ...more
So 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 ...more
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.
