How to be a BAWSE: A Guide to Conquering Life How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life

AUTHOR: Lilly Singh

GENRE: Self-Help

PUBLISHED: March 2017


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



I have seen few videos by Superwoman and could tell that she used her unique style to write this book. At first, I was like ‘it’s like she is talking to people via a video’. She uses jokes, in the same way she might have said it in the video. It made me wonder why didn’t she made it a YouTube series instead. This writing style was annoying at first. It’s a book and books are supposed to be written… a certain way. But as you progress through each chapter you start to enjoy it — her writing and the stories.

“Think of discomfort as currency- it’s the price you pay to learn some pretty crucial things.”


The tips (or lessons) Lilly talks about are so simple. Most of them we already know. But when you read about them it makes you think ‘Why haven’t I been doing this already?’.

Most of the self-help books give you exercises for each chapter to help you understand (or master it). This book has 50 chapter which are max 4/5 pages. You would think there would be a lot of work to do here. All you do with this book is read, relate, identify what’s wrong/ right with your career or you, what needs to be changed, and how can you do it. Wait… I think you do that when reading any self-help book….
At least you don’t need to perform anything. It all thinking. All brain work. Go Brain!

Work comes after finishing the book.

In all, loved the book. I would definitely recommend it. Even if you are not a superwoman fan. Some of the lessons are real gold and we all can use some inspiration to make ourselves better.

  1. great review! i was thinking of reading this, because i do like to watch superwoman from time to time, but don’t most youtubers end up having really bad books that they just wrote for the money? but, even if i don’t like it, i’m going to give it a go maybe this month or the next (whenever it arrives from the library). 😀


  2. Aha.. I had been planning to read this book for quite some time now but was apprehensive. There are so many self help books out there that one definitely needs a self help guide to help us choose which are relevant and which are not. I will definitely try this one now 😀
