The backbone of this collection of essays by Luvvie Ajayi is “Do better. Be better.” That goes for all of us. Ajayi acknowledges she can improve, but overall, she’s here to remind us all that we can do some stupid things sometimes and we should work to change that.
This book talks about people who become obsessed with plastic surgery, people who are too lazy to be clean, people who don’t check their privilege, people who are bigoted, and people who don’t use social media properly. Ajayi points out all sorts of a-holes – no one is safe. But what I like about it is that she tries to get to the root of the judge-able behavior because when we understand why we act a certain way (or when we better understand why acting that way is bad), we’re more likely to change. And she’s funny.
3.5 out of 5 stars. (Note: I likely took off a half star because I read several similar books in a row, making it tough for this one to stand out.)
