I was a fan of Shannen in the 90s and thought it'd be cool to read what she has to say about her experience at that time. The book is pleasant to read. She mostly acknowledges her past mistakes and advises integrity, honesty, and self-confidence; the badass way. She explains she never was a bitch as she never intended to hurt anyone. The book is good, very entertaining, and has lots and lots of great pictures. She has a great sense of humor. I recommend it if you like her and/or want to read about things you might have experienced yourself. Also, I went to her book signing in New York. I wanted to meet her in person. She is the sweetest celebrity I've ever met. She was very friendly and talked to all of us for quite a long time. She also took pictures with everyone. That proves how nice and genuine she is. Way to go, Shannen!

I bought this book because there was a book signing in NYC. I didnt have any expectations at all. I'm reading the book and I think it's one of the best books I've ever read. She gives amazing advice from the heart and from her own experience. I'm going to buy several books and give them as gifts this Christmas. Everyone can benefit from this book, men & women. Bravo to Shannen!

I'll start with a friendly warning; BADASS is NOT an autobiography, it is clearly marketed towards personal growth and self help

***

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?

This was such a wonderful book. Helpful and entertaining. Loaded with great common sense advice. This book helped me to see all the mistakes I had been making and gave me some insight as to why I keep making those same mistakes. Shannon is honest about why it took her so long to truly embrace her inner badass and teaches you how to embrace your own badass self. This book is fun, entertaining and really very helpful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be a stronger better person. Even if you don't like Shannon, give this book a chance. It is well worth the money and may well get you to change your mind about this beautiful badass woman.

I have always been a fan of Doherty, she is the very reason that I own "Beverly Hills 90210", & she is the same age as me, I admit I bought this book for the cover photo & any other pictures of her, but I have to admit that I found the book pretty interesting, she talks about how she doesn't care for bios personally, so I knew this wouldn't be one, & she says that in the first few pages, so you won't waste your time, however she does discuss how the success of "90210" affected her & how the show's popularity put unusual stress on her givin the fact that her father was having a series of health problems during her run on the show, & the fact that she recently lost her father awhile back, I had no trouble believing this part of it, she also talks briefly about her marriage to Rick Soloman(Paris Hilton sex tape), but for the most part she says very little about her other show "Charmed", one thing she does not do is diss her co-stars from both shows, which I thought was nice on her part seeing that some of her past co-stars have dissed her, however while reading this book I can say that Shannen is definately a confident woman & makes no apologies about who she is, she also admits her past mistakes even though she doesn't go into details, she also understands a man's needs in & out of the bedroom which made me an even bigger fan of her
& 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.
