Publisher's 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.

Best book for someone looking for motivation and also to conquer the world!

The energy put by Lilly in this audio book is amazing, positive and most importantly, real. The best thing is that she has narrated it the way she actually speaks, which makes it even more real. Overall, I enjoyed listening to this book and learnt from it. Thanks for this wonderful piece of work Lilly :).

As amazing as I expected

Lilly Singh is one of the only people that is constantly successful in motivating me to improve and develop myself. The book (and she) was absolutely relatable and showed the reader that no matter how regular you think you are, you are extraordinary

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

A wise young woman shares the attitude.

I would recommend this to anybody from age 15 to 50. I think this is one of those occasions when one gets so much more from the audible version- listening to Lilly with all her umph and wisdom was a real pleasure. Great can-do, work hard attitude.

Laughed and cried. This is Lilly Singh

Loved it. Gonna re-listen to it multiple times. Laughed and cried during times and spoke to my soul in a deep connecting human level. The very essence of Superwoman is in the book. And I'm so proud of Lilly <3 #GirlLove

I couldn't put out it down.

I couldn't put this down. I had it on on the drive to and from work (and while I was working ;) ).
Lilly is fantastic. The content and the way she was reading really drew me into her world and let reflect on my own. I agreed with about 99% of her book (not the part about people deserving to get cheated in).
I will be listening to this again, as it is definitely one of those books that you can read over and over again.

BRILLIANT!

So, never heard of Lilly Singh, prior to buying this audio book but read some really good reviews and decided to go ahead! It then sat in my Audible Library for months - until it got to the moment when there was nothing else to listen to, except this book.

Finding it hard to review this audio book in the right words - so wished I had listened to it sooner. Just starting up a business myself, albeit as a bookkeeper rather than a rapper / author / actress but cannot believe how I related to what Lilly spoke about - loved every minute of it and totally related to it, especially the chapter about Deadlines / Procrastination - it's almost like she wrote this book about me ..... although she didn't .... !!!

Really, I cannot recommend this book enough - I was totally surprised as to how much I enjoyed it. I do listen to these kind of books but this is the first one that that I have so absolutely related to and enjoyed - READ IT!

It should be a text book in high school !!!

I loved every word and sentence of this book and what I loved even more is the fact that Lilly has recited it just like in a YouTube video except even without having her stare at my face through my computer screen,she somehow made herself my bff and made her presence felt more than ever!!!! This is inspirational and actually true!! You go girl !! #girllove

BAWSE

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This book was incredibly thought-provoking. There are a few chapters that I have bookmarked to come back to when they are needed. Such as Pause, Let go of FOMO, The Alphabet is a Lie and allllll of Part Four... I am at a place in my life where these particular parts of the book really related to me and what I am trying to work on and have given me a little extra confidence boost to keep growing and climbing those stairs.

Any additional comments?

It was amazing to be able to hear a little insight into what has made Lilly so successful and be able to relate and apply some of those things she's learnt to my own life. I don't want to give away too much of the book to anyone reading this review but you know when you hear things that feel like they are directed right at you? This is how I felt listening to this, I have both a hard copy of the physical book and the audiobook on my phone to make it easier when travelling and out somewhere when I need a little reminder. And I LOVE the fact I can listen to not only Lilly actually speak these words, but some of the bigger influences in her journey.
I love things that make me think of a deeper level and that challenge me in all the right ways. This was definitely one of those things.

Some pretty damn good mainstream self help advice

Says the word "BAWSE" an insane amount of unnecessary times.

Does provide some pretty good advice in a way that appeals to the mainstream and makes sense. Can't fault that.

Light hearted and pragmatic. Bemusing. Worth a listen through.

Nawww Babes Unite!

How to be a Bawse is just what I needed for my soul, kinda like Jewish chicken soup for the soul. Being in a start up business and spending the last few year “hustling” hard it can become isolating and disheartening. Lilly you have raised my spirits to keep on hustling “like a bawse” and know that there will be ups and downs, thanks girl! Big love!

Very inspirational

Lily has been a ray of sunshine in my hectic life through this audiobook. Full of positivity and great common sense advice, even if its stuff you intrinsically know, it's worth being told so that maybe you too can implement great strategies into your life and business to create the life you dream of. Loved it.

Incomparable listening experience 👌

The amazing experience you get as a listener of this book is a living proof of Lilly's hard work over it. I admire her wit, talent and wisdom.

Everything she does is executed in the most unusual, groundbreaking and professional way. Honestly, it is hard to not fall in love with the fruits of her labour!
