Founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis has created an online fan base by sharing tips for living a better life while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own. Each chapter begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward. From her temporary obsession with marrying Matt Damon to a daydream involving hypnotic iguanas to her son's request that she buy a necklace to "be like the other moms," Hollis holds nothing back. With unflinching faith and tenacity, Hollis spurs other women to live with passion and hustle and to awaken their slumbering goals.… (més)

I just looked at all the Goodreads reviews of this book and I have to say I am surprised by all the negative ones. I really liked this book! I thought it was uplifting and encouraging and interesting and helpful and inspirational!! I am not a stay at home mom (anymore) but I wish this book was around when I was! It would have saved me from a lot of the guilt that was heaped upon me by my ex-mother in law. I am a 48 year old grandma now and this book still spoke to me! There are honestly not a lot of parallels in my life to hers but her story was none the less inspiring! I think if people got past the fact that she is what everyone is calling "privileged" you'd see that she is just a person who struggles with the same stuff that we all struggle with and her story and life are not perfect. She may be living a "privileged" life right now, but she worked her ass off for it! And the ways that she has coped with things in her life are tools that we can all use. At least I can. I'd highly recommend this book to any woman at any age because I think if you can look at it objectively, you can glean a lot of great encouragement from it. ( )

2.5 stars. I went back and forth with this book. It seems so popular! I wanted to love it! I didn't like the title, so I did not purchase it when the opportunity arose. I got it for the car...free! I still wouldn't pay for it.

There are things she says that are really, really true. Then, she backs up a truth by yelling at me. At. Me. Ok, I don't want to be yelled at. Or called Girl. Or Y'all.

I do think women need to be nicer to other women and judge way less. I still felt judged here.

So, there you go. ( )

This started strong, wandered in the middle and finished better for me. I felt she has some great "lies" (or chapter headings) and I enjoyed the summaries at the end but the examples and personalisation sometimes was a bit off for me personally. I am not a mother and so much of this book was based around marriage/kids/family relationship and for me that was not a great match. She talks of her privilege without realising sometimes and is self aware at other points. If she was in my sphere I think I would be seriously annoyed by her (remember those kids at school who just needed you to know how good they were!). Her general points were well explained and long examples gave lots of time to think on the concepts mentioned, she has some good stuff to say but sometimes I wondered if she wanted us all to be just like her... I enjoyed some of her points which have probably been made better by other writers in the same field and I wondered if I was just basically too old and jaded for this book and it was more written for an early 20s person with little individual direction (well it felt that way to me). It was a book for those who want to follow a fairly standard path and would like a bit of encouragement but if you are off the beaten track already this book is quite jarring (I have no interest in high income levels at the compromise of time for my other interests and she seemed a bit "I can't pick what I want to do so I get all the help in the world to do it all" which is not really something I feel necessary. She is a positive person but it did feel a bit "look at me" at points. This was a book I would gift to a directionless young person but not anyone approaching 50 or beyond who has made choices outside the earn as much as you can job, traditional marriage, 2.5 kids and a dog type family.

Rachel is fun and easy to relate to. ( )

Ugh. I almost hate how much I loved this book. I almost gave it a pass based on the title and cover, because it just looked so on trend and “of the moment,” that it couldn’t possibly have much lasting value. It’s not that I agreed with Hollis 1000% or that I related to absolutely everything she said. I related to enough and I what I agreed with I really loved; plus I wish I was as brave and honest as this woman. Wow.

Hollis’ voice and writing style sound like any number of bloggers and lifestyle people that are so popular and trendy, y’all. It’s like she’s talking directly to you, her good friend, and just tellin’ it like it is. Except she actually *is* telling the truth. Not some varnished “do this and follow my lead and life will be peachy” or “I’m just like you, I get frustrated at my kids and like wine,” but gut-wrenching, knock you flat on your back, smash in your face, only tell your best friend or therapist kind of truth. And she’s got the bona fides to be giving the advice she does; this girl has been thru it, learned from it, and lived to tell the tale. This is a woman who’s opinion on how to get through a tough time I would trust.

The book is laid out well; each chapter includes a lie Hollis has believed, the truth in each situation, and what has helped her live in that truth. It’s not all earth shattering stuff - make goals, write them down, don’t give up your goal just because someone says no. But she focuses on how we as individuals have a lot more power over what happens to us than we usually wield in our lives. This hit me right between the eyes, personally, and her gentle (sometimes) persistence that we can and ought to do more than we think we can will be something I chew on for quite awhile, and hopefully something that changes some stuff in my life.

I also really appreciated how unapologetically Hollis aims to cheer on and support all women. Stop judging, be kind and put yourself in someone else’s shoes, love yourself. All these things need to be said often and loudly. She is fighting hard for this perspective change, and I love it. I’m not about to follow her on social media and share all her memes (comparison is the thief of joy, y’all, and also I prefer not to subject myself to insane amounts of mainstream influence) but I’m glad she’s out there, being honest and truthful and encouraging.
