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!

Sigh...I didn't love it

I'm a fan of Amanda so I appreciate the work she did. And yes, there are definitely some Gems. It's not a bad read at all, But as someone that regularly listens to her podcast I found it to feel a bit recycled. I've heard a lot of the stories & anecdotes already. So I didn't come across any really poignant new insights to take with me. Also, I find Amanda to be a better extemporaneous speaker than "performer".

Just what I needed

This book was entertaining! I love how she broke down everything pertaining to black culture in my opinion. I can relate to this book, I am a black woman in leadership in male oriented job. I can’t wait for volume 2!

Thank you Amanda!

Amanda is the perfect balance between radical and rational. She gives us a manual for navigating life as a women. This book is awesome, it calls you on your bull**** but also gives you solid advice on how to navigate towards better. Thank you Amanda..

Amazingly unmatched!

Absolutely loved this and laughed my a** off most of the time... though it's a RAW, "Tell it like it is," dose of truth serum that may be hard to swallow, for some. But so relatable and MUCH needed. Thoroughly enjoyed! Awesome work!

Some real truth bombs were dropped in this comical, truthful, and relatable autobiography. Love it. Will be listening to it again.

Amazing as always

Amanda Seales keeps it real and is so insightful as always. I really enjoyed listening to her tell her story and experiences in her own voice. I need to quit playin myself and attend a Smart Funny and Black event. I support this woman 100%. I’ve never listened to her and thought to myself “oh she wildin”. But I always listen to her and think to myself “Truuueeeeeeeee”.

I’m biased!

Hilarious, real and phenomenal black woman sharing her perspective. I especially appreciate Amanda sharing pieces of her mental wellness journey. More black woman should make space for mental wellness because we are the healers of our community and the world!
