I've never bought (or even read) a self help book before, and I only bought BADASS because Shannen Doherty wrote it, so I had no idea what to expect. BADASS is a lifestyle guide that is spilt into three clear sections:
* BADASS BASIC TRAINING
What is a badass, why you should want to be one and a simple guide on how to become one and live your life to it's full potential.
* THE BADASS ART OF LOVE AND WAR
Once you've know how to improve yourself, it's time to learn how to apply your new and improved outlook with family, friends colleagues and partner.
* LIVING THE BADASS LIFESTYLE
Now you've changed your outlook and attitude accordingly - and have also changed the way that you interact with the people around you - you need to think about your surroundings and the things you do too.
Part one starts with Shannen clarifying what the term badass means to her: Living your life with integrity, honesty, and self--confidence. Once we know and understand what our goal is Shannen advises us how to stop wasting time and opportunities people-pleasing and hiding away and becoming smart, honest, more confident and assertive - all while avoiding the trap of coming across as being bitchy.
Section two is more in depth, especially the advise for intimate relationships. Some people may find some of the advice in section two old fashioned; For instance she asks how hard is it to shave your legs and underarms for your partner?Read more ›
& does bash women who are selfish & only think of themselves, now one could argue that she is that way, but I didn't get that impression, she seems happy & content with life, & isn't that what we all want anyway, I have always felt she was a bit misunderstood, & this book proves it, she does use the term "badass" a little too much, but I had to chuckle at the fact that her using this word was probably to aggrevate her critics, the last part of the book really details how to be a good host for party functions & has several food recipes, overall this is for Shannen fans only, if you are a fan, I say get it, if you are not, don't bother.
