I will just come out and say it. This book pissed me off. I don't offend easily and given the name of the book, I figured there would be strong language. No problem there. Then the author infused her spiritual beliefs in the universe and energy and such. Okay, no judgement from me on that. But as I mustered through the book, the racist undertones became stronger to the point that I was getting angry while reading a book that is intended to be hilarious and insightful. And if you think the audio book is any better, guess again. Behind the author's sarcasm, and Daria-like humor and tone, my frustration magnified. And to top it all off, I didn't get a single morsel of information that I could use in my daily life or business. But I did save $9.60 plus shipping and handling (thanks Charlotte Mecklenburg Library!)

Since this "Best Seller" taught me nothing, might I suggest something that did, Girl Stop Apologizing, by Rachel Hollis. I've applied a number of that book's suggestions towards my personal and business life and I absolutely love it. You Are A Badass, not so much.

If I had to read the phrase "Love Yourself" one more time, I was going to chuck the book out the window.
There's a few tidbits of decent advice buried in between the "love yourself" and the discussions of your energies and vibes. There's nothing really new here, and the small bits I found helpful were buried in so much other stuff I almost missed them.

Some of the advice in this book is great, and could help out a lot of people! However, some of it is incredibly toxic. While I don't doubt that the author wrote this book with only the best of intentions, a lot of the advice in here was stuff that I used to buy into, and it really screwed me up.
If you have depression, PLEASE don't try to "change your story" and "let it go", any more than you would try this strategy with a broken leg. If you broke your leg, and decided to "change your story" by "recognizing" that you were gaining rest, and attention in the form of treatment, or people signing your cast, for example, and then simply decided to let it go and act as if nothing were wrong, you would only be gaslighting yourself and exacerbating your problem. If you break your leg, the solution is obviously to seek treatment as soon as you notice the problem.
You need to have the same energy for mental health problems that you have for physical problems. If you have depression, it's likely that you have a chemical imbalance in your brain. If not, your problem is still more serious than anything that can be solved by just "choosing to let it go", and especially if you've been struggling with it for a while, and it is within your means to get help, get help. If you are in treatment, stay in treatment. You cannot solve serious problems by choosing to let them go.
Please don't make the same mistakes that I did.

How is this book a best seller? I hated it and I couldn't get past the first few pages. To each his own.

I tried, I really did, but when she started talking about a "higher being", I had to put it down and return it. Disappointing!

Like other commenters have said, there’s nothing new in this book. But sometimes we need to hear things said a specific way to get them to sink in, so maybe the way the author writes will resonate with you.

Though the author curses an awful lot, I still think this was definitely worth the read.

Loosen your Bone, Wilma!

If you’re serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse.

Don’t get so tangled up in the stupid little stuff that you miss out on enjoying the people who have part ownership of your heart.
