Summary

The favored podcast and E! show LadyGang hosts offer a relatable, encouraging, and humorous combat being unapologetically yourself during a manifesto that redefines womanhood for the 21st-century lady.

If you are incurious about being bombarded with social media posts and their curated perfection and you're starving for something raw, honest, and a little bit messy, welcome to the LadyGang. Keltie, Becca, and Jac are here to clear off the shit out of many topics and provide you a new way to measure your best lady life.

Commentary

This was a light-weight, easy-breezy, quick summer read. I want to be a prevailing LadyGang podcast listener. I feel I started listening on their 3rd ever released episode, so I witnessed expanding their podcast from side hustle to full-blown company/subscription box/tour/book release, etc. I felt that the authentic voices I loved at the start were becoming a touch too preachy on behalf of me.

The ladies have done it - this book was perfect and exactly what I wanted it to be. It had been crammed with quippy self-help, relatable stories, and invited you into Keltie, Jac, and Becca's lives. I walked away feeling like I knew them a touch more and with a couple of of their words of wisdom about living life as a lady.

It is an enjoyable read that flips the thought of what's ladylike the wrong way up. I like how unfiltered and honest these ladies are because sometimes that's what you would like to listen to. Their real-world stories and questionable advice conclude this book so well.

I think this book seems like the sort of pretty, eye-catching book that you'd find during a table in Anthropologie. But there's real substance here, it's delivered in a friendly style, but it's very serious sometimes too. Yes, it is written by three hilarious and entertaining women. However, it handles serious issues between sillier topics. All three women have gone through some very serious situations in their lives. They open their hearts and shared their own experiences to advise others.

They mention friendship, relationships, careers, divorce, losing someone you're keen on, low self-worth, weight issues, emotionally abusive relationships, and many other topics.

I think they offered tons of excellent advice. It's not always easy to like yourself, but you've got to find out too. Don't accept a relationship with a person you can't picture caring for when you're elderly. Don't be hard on yourself but exerting for what you would like in life. It's okay to make mistakes as long as you rise and learn from them. The stories within the book were funny, and that they did make me feel more normal. So I assume the authors succeeded in their mission! I ended up reaching bent my best lady friends to allow them to skills excellent they're by the center of the book because this book causes you to appreciate the people around you. I cannot recommend it enough.

This book encourages women to be themselves more and put less pressure on themselves to be the typical idea of "ladylike." Being a woman today is about quite having perfect manners and excellent hair--ladies of today are hardworking, educated, stylish and bold, and this book is all about celebrating the 21st-century lady.

This book was a fun, lighthearted checkout life as a lady. While it's mostly funny, there have been essays that hit deep and were beautiful to read.

I've loved their podcast since their first episode, but anyone can read this book. If you're keen on the Ladygang, you'll love the book, and if you've never listened to an episode, this book may be a great introduction to those amazing women and a pleasant escape once you need it.
