Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don't have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: that's a lie.

If you have ever said any of these things to yourself . . .

Something else will make me happy. I'm not a good mom. I will never get past this. I am defined by my weight. I should be further along by now.

. . . then you could benefit from the unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity Rachel Hollis has in store for you. In this challenging but conversational book, Rachel exposes the twenty lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we've told ourselves so often we don't even hear them anymore.

Rachel is real and talks about real issues. More than that, she reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be. Because you really can live with passion and hustle - and give yourself grace without giving up.

Hardest of hard passes on this one. Barf and barf again.

ONE STAR. It's trite nonsense. There are a very few pearls of wisdom but in the main it is a mystery that this book is so popular. The author defaults to an undertone of preaching/cajoling that can only be unironically used if success has already come your way and you don't actually care about anybody else's journey; the view is lovely if you're at the top looking down. So little humility, an uncomfortable read.

So much privilege in this book that she doesn't address. Couldn't even finish it.

I checked this out based on the quirky cover and snarky title expecting it to be a cheeky sarcastic self-improvement book for millennials. I was very wrong. I was not able to finish this book.

I enjoyed this book because of her personal anecdotes, it has entertainment value. I take her advice with a grain of salt because of her (relative) youth. I seriously wonder how her beliefs will transform as she approaches middle-age. Perhaps the sequel will be: Lady, Scrub Your Face!

Body shaming, judgement for other’s addictions while hypocritically dismissing her own (the attribution fallacy—others’ shortcomings are due to their character, but *mine* are due to circumstance) and a heaping dose of plagiarism make this book a complete waste of time. There are better, more inspirational and empowering books out there. This one reeks of privilege and narcissism.

I liked the book and found it interesting to read and somewhat helpful. I do agree with some of the comments that she writes from a place of privilege and wealth. Some of her chapters made me wonder if she is too focused on work, fame, and wealth. This also made it hard for me to relate to her. But, she does write with brutal honesty, so I can appreciate that about her. Overall, I liked her writing style and thought the book was well written. (4 stars)

This book was painfully bad. I could not even finish it. I had high expectations based on the popularity. Was glad I borrowed this book, rather than purchased.

This book was just "Okay" there are many other mindset books that are more empowering and transformational. Wasnt a bad read by any means, but wasn't as enlightening as the book has been portrayed as.
