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.

Surprisingly worth it

I honestly didn’t know what to expect from the author. I loved her honesty of past experiences and she really allowed me to enjoy and even look forward to listening to more daily. I have viewed a few of her YouTube vids but I never knew what was her main intention. Bringing joy to the world is a great motivation and I truly love her personality. This book is definitely worth your time!

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.

Appeals to the Youtube fans

I was curious about this book after seeing the various promos for it and for Lilly's channel. I loved that she was motivated to create a Youtube channel after going through depression so she had to fight her demons publicly. I think that Lilly is an amazing character though the book does not have a common thread running through it but instead jumps around to the extent that she goes from one chapter talking about how she is a virgin to the next chapter where she talks about how she would like The Rock to 'Smash her.'. For me some of the humour felt forced, I could tell that it was meant to be funny I didn't think it was.
I'd recommend the book to anyone who is a fan of her Youtube channel as well as anyone who wants an extra boost.

Changed my life whilst I listened.

I listened and I applied. Not even intentionally. Lilly as author was obviously the best idea, she spoke to me on such a personal level, made her lessons so natural and obvious to follow through with, I've had 2 meaningful conversations with senior colleagues in my workplace just by sheer confidence from listening, in one day.
Finished it in 3 days.. I planned to do it by Sunday Lilly and it's only Friday... you legend. We should so be friends.
I just need to surround myself with like-minded driven people now. It's difficult going from one state of mind to another, especially when the friends you attracted before don't get it because they've not transitioned.
I recommend this book - preferably audio version to every living human being on the planet.

Excellent book, well worth listening to / reading

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would definitely recommend this book because not only did it inspire me to become a better human being, to become more open minded and most importantly to think outside the norm, I am 100% sure it will help anyone else who is feeling down / depressed with life or even those who just want to become better human beings to make this world a better place, which we currently need in this day and age.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Be a Bawse?

All the chapters played a significant role in my own life, so I guess the whole book was the most memorable moment for me.

Which character – as performed by Lilly Singh – was your favourite?

Just being her usual self was my favourite part, as I really enjoyed the fact when she was true to herself about her capabilities and her aspirations.

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

All the chapters in this book moved me, one way or another.
One particular moment that moved me in this book was when Lilly repeatedly kept on saying throughout her life that 'I want to do such and such so I'm going to do it, no matter what anyone else says, even if they say that it can't be done' - and then she actually did it and it happened, that courage to keep on persisting and not giving up was one of the moments I really enjoyed.

Any additional comments?

Thank you very much Miss Lilly Singh for writing and reading this excellent book, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it, on my to and from work, every single day for the past couple of weeks. You have inspired me to become a better human being and for that I humbly thank you.

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

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.

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!

The book is amazing, and that's evident. It helps you grow, even me personally. But also, it's extremely entertaining. Lilly, you really are an excellent entertainer. I'd listen to this on my way home from work, which usually feels super slow, but when listening to this I didn't want to reach my destination. Thanks girl

Loving it so far!! 😍😍😍

I am absolutely love reading Lilly's book thus far - she hits me in the heart, nerves & feels so hard & I love it. I have the book & am reading it imagining her narrating it so I thought why not also hear the audible version!!! Sounds exactly how I imagined my narrative lol excited to complete this book. Thank you Lilly.
