    The is by far the best self help book I have ever read. It is a fast and easy read and I was able to read it in 2 days. In fact I keep it in my night stand as a refresher, I keep referring back to it. I really like Andrea's no nonsense way and I like the way the chapters are laid out. She gives you actual examples and ideas. If I can get this in the hands of every woman I care about I would. The is by far the best self help book I have ever read.

Everyone wants to live kick-ass life and if this book really was without any BS, then maybe this is something I would really enjoy. I thought that anecdotes were very suitable for the situations that were described in the book. They were funny, straight-forward, and really made you see the point that the author was trying to make. A lot of times self-help authors try to tip-toe around people because they think they are “broken”. 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: Bs-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve hit you on the head with the truth and only truth. It was a great read and even though it wasn’t something that made me absolutely love the book, it was entertaining and very enjoyable read.

    I do not generally like self improvement books, as they tend to be filled with obvious preaching messages. This was not. It was full of compassion, understanding and extremely useful advice.

MY THOUGHTS: I don't read a lot of self-help books. Not because I don't think I need to, but because I find I would rather loose myself in someone else's life and story that try and figure out what's wrong with my own. One of the reasons that I was drawn to this book in particular is the title... I mean, who doesn't want to live a kick-ass life? That being said, I found that this book didn't excite me as much as I thought it would. Here is why: 1. I thought that the chapters were just sort of thrown together, with no real consistency or building from one chapter to the next. Want to read further on a subject? Then skip ahead from chapter 4 to chapter 32. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Then, go back and try to re-read what you missed, but in reading chapter 6 you have to skip to chapter 28 to finish reading... are you confused yet? Good, because that's kind of how I felt while trying to jump around to read all of the related chapters at once. It just was a lot of jumping around between chapters, and I felt that the author could have arranged the chapters better, grouping all of the sections about weight loss in one area, all the ones about letting go in another, etc. 2. I felt as though a lot of the chapters were repetitive. What I mean is that the author takes the same theme, or idea, and words it differently making it into another chapter entirely. Personally, I wouldn't have cared if there were 52 chapters or 30 chapters, and I thought that some of the chapters could have been condensed. 3. There seemed to be a lot going on with the actual layout of the book, which I found distracting. The blank pages, instead of being left blank, were covered in tiny little lines that were hard to look at, and make the entire page look grayed out if you stared at it long enough. There were tons of different fonts (combining different type faces, sizes, bolding, italicizing, etc) that made parts of the book distracting. I can understand the thought behind this - to draw your attention to the most important part of the chapter, but felt that the super large font made my eyes jump to only that part, and made me skip some of the other important things on the page. Personally, I find this distracting. And while it's probably not the author's fault, it did take away from my opinion of the book. All that being said, I think that the author definitely did hit the nail on the head when it comes to finding relevant examples that are relatable, and enjoyed the direct message of each chapter. I thought that the ideas presented were done in a blunt and straightforward way - there was no fiddling through to find out what the main message or theme was. The author really does write things to HELP people, rather than just tossing more BS into the already BS-filled world of self-help books. But, more than that, everything was broken down into bite-size, manageable chapters that allowed for thoughts and exercises to creep into my head before proceeding onto the next chapter. The book allowed for reflection on what was being said, and often gave ways to help yourself realize that whatever was being taught in the chapter can happen in your own life. What I loved most about this book is the fact that it seems to genuinely want to help women move forward in their lives - past the walls they build up around themselves; past the awful ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands, and into a world where women can truly live the life they want to live. It doesn't seem to be about telling people what they want to hear, or what will sell on bookshelves. This book is genuinely about helping women. I definitely think there is a lot within this book that I will be able to use in my own life to live a happier, healthier and more kick-ass life. Overall, I give this book 3.5/5 stars, rounded up to four stars because the author does make some really good, thought-provoking points that I can see making a difference in my own life. It may not be the most uplifting book ever written, but it is a much-needed kick in the pants that I will be passing on to other women in my life. Finally, I just want to thank the author and publisher for allowing me to receive a signed copy of this book. I received it in a VERY timely manner, and appreciate their thought and care in sending it.

I highlighted some of my favorite paragraphs and passages so I can look back at them later. This is a helpful book for putting little pieces of positivity into your day. The author, Andrea Owen knows how to speak to a board spectrum of girls and I loved the book a lot.

    I feel like this book never really gave enough information to make the reader feel they could make changes in their lives. Each chapter is so short and just kind of brushes a topic and then leaves you hanging. The author obviously has experienced heartbreak in the past and it makes me wonder if she were in the midst of the raw emotion those betrayals caused her would she read this book and find that it helped her?

    I loved this book! This is what I expected from You Are a Badass and didn't find there. I loved Andrea's writing style and it's relational quality. Her 52 chapters are short, to the point, and powerful. Beyond simply dealing with whatever issues you might have, she gives practical tips that anyone needs to do to live an awesome life (have values and live by them, find out what makes you happy, drop friends you've outgrown, etc.).

    What a bad ass book I absolutely can't say one bad thing about this book. It was motivational, without being preachy. It was well written with short chapters so the reader felt like it was easy to get into. The information was presented as knowledge the writer has gone through which was great because it made it more personable. I will definitely be picking this book up again and buying a paperback version to refer back to for reference. What a bad ass book I absolutely can't say one bad thing about this book.

    This book was very repetitive and not one of the best confidence-boosting books. But, I do have to give it some credit. I had a terrible day today, but I spent every minute I could listening to the audiobook, and it really helped make me feel better. I was going to give it a 3.5 but it helped me get through the day and it seriously stated some things I needed to hear, though a lot of it was referring to situations adults would go through.

    I struggled to get through this to be honest. It might’ve been the way she wrote or the tone I’m not really sure, there was just something that didn’t make me love the message. Yes there were some good ideas, but with 52 chapters nothing was really touched on deeply enough for me. It really felt more like.. ‘here’s a great a idea.. now let me talk about how that relates to me and my divorce/cheating ex/low self esteem’. Okay.. so I guess it was how she wrote it then that was the problem.

    I've read this book twice now and I will probably keep going back to it, as the author herself recommends (when you're in need). I am not a huge fan of self-help books, even though I've been through a phase in my 20s where that's the only thing I would read. But this book is so easy to read and it speaks in such simple words that it just speaks to me. Sometimes it is like stating the obvious and I wonder how did I not see that? Or why didn't I think of that? Or I couldn't have said it better mys I've read this book twice now and I will probably keep going back to it, as the author herself recommends (when you're in need).

Or why didn't I think of that? Or I couldn't have said it better myself. You get the point. One of my favorite paragraphs: "Maybe your life purpose is that you learn about yourself and the world on this journey of life, you do your best to be a good person and be kind to people, and help some people who need help. The end. Maybe doing those three things for the entire nininety-nine or so years of life is really what you were meant to do." and "Bottom line: If you want to change your mind, give yourself a break. Personally, I think it's braver to admit you want to change course and then make it happen than to suffer a passionless life." I think she has very good advice for many situations that I can relate to. And lately I find myself quoting her a lot, or sharing paragraphs with my friends who are in desperate need of some wisdom and encouraging words. I even had to translate sentences for my friends who don't speak English. So yea, I've enjoyed this book. If you are a big self-help reader, maybe you'll find this too simple for your taste or maybe you've already heard and read all this before. But for me, it was an eye-opening book and it helped me become aware of many of my issues that I had been dtragging around for years.

    Overall, I would have to say that this is a good personal development book. It touches on a lot topics and, like with a lot of personal development books, many/most of them really resonate with the reader. I do appreciate a lot of the topics that were discussed in this book. Every once in a while, I felt like we were going over the same thing again. Some topics were similar without being exactly the same. Compared to other PD books, I would say that it doesn't exactly stand out. I thought it wou Overall, I would have to say that this is a good personal development book.

Compared to other PD books, I would say that it doesn't exactly stand out. I thought it would be right up my alley because of the "BS-Free Wisdom" that is supposed to be in there. I felt like it was a mix between genuine BS-Free advice, humorous banter and annoying words there to remind you hat this is supposed to be straight-forward. Some of it came off like she it was trying too hard to be BS-Free. I'm not sure if I can explain it properly... but again, it was on and off. I wish that this book came with exercises or reflection topics at the end of each chapter. I feel like those are the best kinds of personal development books. The ones that force you to stop reading, think about what you learned and apply it to your own life. If this book had those chapter reflections, it would have pushed it over to a four-star rating. But that's just my personal opinion.

    I wasn't very fond of this book... I found maybe 1 or 2 of the chapters helpful... But honestly, it just sounded like a hodgepodge of podcasts that I've listened to before. I found that I was forcing myself to read it, but not enjoying it (I have problems leaving a book unread once I've started it). I think the reason I was disappointed was because I had different expectations for this book. I like inspirational books that have sort of a step-by-step, chronological, "this is what you need to do I wasn't very fond of this book... I found maybe 1 or 2 of the chapters helpful...

    I loved reading this book. It was an easy read, with a lot of obvious information but laid out in a refreshing way. Typically, when you reach for a self-help type of book it's because you've just gone through or are going through some tough times and need moral support. This book offered that in a non-preachy, non-judgemental way. What made this book unique and appealing was that Andrea writes how she speaks, cussing and all. It felt like I was reading it from the perspective of one of my friend I loved reading this book. It was an easy read, with a lot of obvious information but laid out in a refreshing way.

I finished this book in just over a day and it was exactly what I needed to kick-start the motivation I was lacking in my life.

I tried to navigate through the triangulation with my kids as I was trying to co-parent....sadly, this is the first time I really saw the manipulation of me and the kids and the lies to us both....all in a way, he says, “to keep everyone happy.” No jack-ass, it was to keep you happy and the rest of us are still confused as to what the he I needed to hear this entire book at this particular time.

It really spoke to me on how to ignite my inner badass and help keep the calm in areas I am not able to! I was actually finishing this book on my Kindle while flying to New Orleans when we were told that we had to backtrack to Houston due to a storm in NOLA then found out I had a 5 hour layover! In the past I would of not handled this well but I was literally reading this while this all happened and helped me remember that I cannot control everything so no Andrea's book is one of my top 5 books!

    This book took me a very long time to complete. I purchased this book at least within a year's time of it being published. So I've had it since perhaps, 2014? (Sometimes I feel like when I purchase a book it actually takes me longer to finish since I know I don't have the next patron at the library breathing over my shoulder to complete it.) Okay let me say this first, I know I gave kind of a middle to low star rating here.

(Sometimes I feel like when I purchase a book it actually takes me longer to finish since I know I don't have the next patron at the library breathing over my shoulder to complete it.) Okay let me say this first, I know I gave kind of a middle to low star rating here. That doesn't mean this won't be a five star for a lot of people... also it doesn't mean that I found this book fun but useless... Not the case... It is very well written. I just felt that some of the points felt too specific whilst others felt way too vague. I think a lot of the advice was very good and plan on re-reading to highlight points. Also I think her chapter on "perfect body" was not good... I think I agree with her but she should be clear that, your health is important but there is no such thing as perfect... She wasn't clear on that, and she also throws the word "perfect" around in other parts of the book that negates the no such thing as perfect.

    Love this book so much! It’s so easy to get through chapters, and I’ve even been taking notes! Her writing voice is also very relatable. There was even a chapter on dumping friends you’ve outgrown, and that chapter came at a time in my life where I really needed to consider where to go with a toxic friendship. This book helped me figure that out! Perfect for women in their 20s! One of my favorite self help books so far as a successful woman who is sometimes insecure and also holds onto the past Love this book so much!

    I read this book in 2 days and truly enjoyed it. It really made me think hard about how I feel and what I need to do in order to try to be the best version of myself. All of these changes won't happen overnight but this book definitely inspired me to work hard to be the person I truly want to be and live the life I want. I will live my version of a kick-ass life :) I read this book in 2 days and truly enjoyed it.

    Normally, I'm not into nonfiction books, but my mom recommended this book and I'm glad I read it. I had a pretty good year last year, but I wanted to keep that momentum for this year as well. This book is blunt, but honest. It gives you that little kick in the seat of your pants to just do it! I became inspired to make my own app, even though I don't know anything about making an app (yet). I'm taking the steps to learn about coding and eventually get my app made.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who doubts their own potential and just needs that boost of confidence in themselves.

    I absolutely loved her straightforward to the point no BS writing style! A little less cursing would be a bit more professional and make the few strong words more powerful to get the point across. She has 52 short chapters that touch on all areas of life. This book is for women of all ages & stages of life, worth the read!

    Not what I thought this book would be... looking for something that helps with purpose in life. Or finding direction. Or just ideas for bucket lists that help you live a full life. Turns out in the last chapter i'm right where i'm meant to be. Got a few ideas for helping with direction. But not what I was looking for overall.

    I really enjoyed this book. Granted it didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know--listen to your gut, believe in yourself, find the wisdom in the pain, let go of perfectionism--but Andrea Owen's chatty writing style was engaging and her short and sweet chapters on each of her 52 ways were the perfect bite-sized reminders. Very engaging read. I really enjoyed this book.

    I listened to this on audiobook and really enjoyed the experience while I was driving about doing my errands during the day. The book got a bit repetitive, but overall I really enjoyed it and plan to listen to more 'girlboss' audiobooks in the future.
