Publisher's Summary

Insightful essays, poignant life advice, and pithy pearls of wisdom from one of comedy’s brightest rising stars

Comedian, writer, actress, and social media star Amanda Seales is a force of nature who has fearlessly and passionately charted her own course through life and career. Now, in her one-of-a-kind voice that blends academic intellectualism, Black American colloquialisms, and pop culture fanaticism, she’s bringing her life’s lessons and laughs in this audiobook. This volume of essays and axioms provides Seales’s trademark “self-help from the hip” style of commentary, fueled by ideology formed from her own victories, struggles, research, mistakes, risks, and pay-offs. Unapologetic, fiercely funny, and searingly honest, Small Doses engages, empowers, and enlightens listeners on how to find their truths while still finding the funny!

Very Important topics ! Not a fun read but a necessary one

The book talks about alot of complex issues in the African American community from Amanda’s witty and smart point of view; however, the book was boring - i was shocked how boring it was. Definitely love and support her movement but the book was so boring!

Empowering & Intelligent

I absolutely loved this audiobook. It was thoughtful and unapologetically honest. I'll probably listen again.

Most Awesome Sauce Cocolicious Warrior 🌞👍🏿✌🏿🙏🏿👏🏿👊🏾🤰🏾🤱🏿

I love learning from books. This was self-help with out the label. Amanda living her truth and her willingness and bravery to be so damn vulnerable is so on time for me during this global timeout. There’s a super power in being vulnerable.
I was a little hesitant to try it out because I assumed it would be just a bunch of complaints. Plus Alicia Keys’ book was coming out next week. So I was turn with what to do with that 1 credit. But I was like give Amanda a chance cause you really don’t know much about her and her story.
She is the epitome of kiwi. Don’t judge by the outside what you go get from the inside. Truly words have power because I could only listen in ‘small doses’. But the reason was because I had to marinate on so many of her points.
Her gem 💎 dropping sections are nothing but the amazing. I love it when women can be unapologetically their authentic selves because that’s my goal in life. Plus she so self aware and that is priceless right now.
She ain’t for everybody and she knows it and is good with that knowledge. I got confirmation from the Universe through this book it’s time to choose being kind over nice.

Incredible!!!!

I already love Amanda Seales, so I was all too ready to buy this book both in physical form and on Audible. Having her read her own words and deliver in only the way that Amanda can made this experience even more enjoyable. All the truth, the laughs, the real, and the melanin. I loved every single word. A must must must read!!!

Great Book

l loved this book not only because I think Amanda is just great but because she is real and talked about real life events and how she as a black woman had to deal and continues to deal with this world that is not for us...yet. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be listening to again.

Very GOOD BOOK to stretch one’s think/ perspective.

Very good book to read! Very accurate from an intellectual-well thought critic and viewpoint with humor . Would highly recommend if you want to be challenged and stretched in your thinking and perspective. Again, good read!
