Publication Date: March 28, 2017
YouTube star and comedian Lilly Singh, better known as iiSuperwomanii, brings you her guide to conquering life. Being a Bawse is about so much more than working hard - it's about being confident, being genuine, and not being afraid to go after your dreams.

Rating: 5 stars

I've been following Lilly's career on her main channel for years now, and since November of 2016, I started following her daily vlogs too. And I soon realized how much she inspires me. So, when she said that she was writing a book, I knew that I had to read it because it would motivate me to work harder.

The book is written in a way that doesn't require you to be a fan in order to enjoy it. Lilly writes in such a way that her regular audience feels connected, but normal readers don't feel like they're missing out on inside jokes because they're not among her fans (Team Super).

I partially read this and partially listened to the audiobook over the course of a week. It was a great experience to have Lilly reading her own audiobook as I read the physical book and looked at the pictures included. In between switching from the audiobook to the physical book, I could feel her passion come through her words. She believed so much in what she was wrote that I began to believe it too.

Lilly spends the majority of the book giving tips and advice for being more productive, being better with time management, and in general, going after the life you want. She uses personal stories and experiences that she learned from, and also talks about the advice other people have given her throughout her career. But she never makes you feel like you're not doing enough just because you're not as busy as she is. She actively does her best to inspire her readers to go after what they want and to work hard for it.

I found her book so inspiring that I wrote down several quotes from it. This is the most number of quotes I've taken from a single book since reading Eleanor & Park, and I want to make it a point to memorize these quotes because they push me to work harder for what I want. One of the things I love most about this book is that Lilly makes you want to set her book down and start working immediately. She fills you with so much inspiration and good work ethic that you can't help but want to be a more productive person, even if you're already insanely productive on a daily basis.

What I found to be the most inspiring part is that Lilly actively tells you that she believes in your ability to work hard for your goals. She remains encouraging and motivating throughout the book, empowering you to go for things that you only dreamed about.

5 stars. I love this book and will definitely be reading it again in the future. It's really hard to talk about this properly because I'm so filled with motivation and inspiration every time I think about the book. I know I probably didn't do a great job of selling it to you, but if you've ever wanted to find the motivation to work harder, I would really recommend picking this up!
