Publisher's Summary

The only lie told more often than "no, that looks totally cute on you" and "I got AIDS through oral" is "it gets better". Well, a lotta times it don't. Sometimes it just sucks less. But I promise you: Where there's a Willam, there's a way.

But this isn't all about me (for once). It's about you and how you can suck less at a variety of things drag queens are so much better at than the average person. I've got clap backs and life hacks and tips on classing up a simple grab-and-run lifting spree to the much more dignified act of larceny. Super-important life stuff with my own special secret fag-swag sauce. So welcome to Willam's School of Bitchcraft and Wiggotry. Class is in session.

With a foreword by Neil Patrick Harris.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

One of the best!

This audio book was genius. Think of it like one of the books for dummies. It was written like Willam was talking to a normal person. The tile does what it says Willam teaches you how to suck less. In my personal opinion the company The Great Courses should get Willam to do a full lecture series.

hilariously real

the voiced glossary with Courtney and Alaska was hilarious. Generally a very real survival guide that covers all of your bases.

I blow more now that I suck less

Got the Audible cause I was taking a road trip and couldn't wait, will be getting hard copy ASAP. The voice of Willam is the voice of yessss Gawd!

The ONLY self help book you need!

I've been DYING for Willam to write a book ever since episode 1 of season 4 of RPDR! His blunt and frighteningly insightful brand of humor only comes from people who have been around the block. But this book took me by surprise. It's not just some entertainting piece of fluff. There's REAL advice from someone who has been there, done that, and has their face and hot bod on the t-shirt! I could go on for days about why this is an incredible book, but you just need to experience it for yourself! I would say that we need more people like Willam, but you can't duplicate a flawless, one of a kind, like her!

Do yourself a favor...

Buy the paper copy too! That way you can follow along while Willam reads to you with the sweet tone of honey that flows from those pouty lips. This gives you visuals and audibles for double the pleasure. You're welcome! (Spell check used to avoid typos, I didn't graduate so I can't say anything about proper punctuation and my spell checked ain't fancy) BYE!

Gagged...in both the good way and the bad way.

This book was pretty comical. I don’t agree with most of the stuff in it; however, I didn’t have to in order to enjoy it. I wanted Willam to talk more about specific things, but the fact that he touched on all of the things I wanted to hear about his life was good enough for me.

I didn’t love this book to the point of me fawning over it and saying it’s the best think that has ever been created (like I will for Bianca’s book), but I will keep it around and listen to it when I want a chuckle.

The negatives: I listened to the audiobook and Willam’s voice is honestly so slow, difficult to understand, and awkward at times. However, when I moved it up to 1.5x speed, his voice was clear and more enjoyable. I also found it funny, but slightly annoying that he would mess up words to his own book, or lose where he was at in the book, especially if he was on #3 or #4 on a list of 22 (or whatever). I also noticed he was chewing gum, which I didn’t mind, because it’s Willam....

Overall, I’m glad I read/listened to this book and I just hope more queens put books out so I can eat them up!

Hilarious yet informative!

I loved this audiobook. I laughed so hard, and his advice was helpful. The book was everything I was hoping for and more. I only took off one star because I couldn't access the PDF file of the book.

This is not the best as an audiobook...

Would you try another book from Willam Belli and Neil Patrick Harris - foreword and/or Willam Belli?

Of course. I'm sure it made for an entertaining book, but it was not the best to listen to.

Has Suck Less turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, it hasn't.

What three words best describe Willam Belli’s voice?

Comedic, Nasally, Comfortable

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Suck Less?

Maybe less "Oh and in this picture here, I'm....."

Any additional comments?

Excellent!

This book should be required reading / listening (I'd go for the listening option, Willam doing Willam is everything!) I learned quite a bit in the process of listening. VERY funny, VERY 'entertainting'. My RBF cracked a little.

A Must for Fans of Willam!

If you love Willams sassy beatdowns and untraditional advice, then you'll love this book. I love listening to Willam read the book but I think I now need to buy the book to get the full visuals.

A must for and RPDR fans, great for every one else

That moment when you get an audio book to support the author and it ends up being the most amazing audio book you've ever listened to. Cannot recommend enough. Funny and entertaining, at times educational, always willam.

Oh my god. From start to finish this really was a fantastic book with a lot of 'oh my god did he just say that' moments. Everything you should have already known to expect with Willam. Download and listen today

Give her your money!!!

For someone who only in recent months fell in love with Willam after watching her on RuPauls Drag Race, I just HAD to buy this and it was 100% worth every penny!
I felt like I learnt more about everything than I ever have in a weird.
I highly recommend this audio book if you want to take a sneak peek into the life and ways of doing things with a drag queen and not only that but it's also has guest readers Bianca Del Rio, Courtney Act and Alaska 5000 in it too just to put the cherry on top!
