20th March, 2017: Penguin Random House is thrilled to announce one of the most anticipated releases of 2017, How to be a Bawse by youtube sensation Lilly Singh. Told in Lilly’s signature bold and funny voice, the book is a practical guide to making changes. Each chapter has an anecdote from Lilly to emphasize her point, from her most awkward handshake to her first meeting with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Talking about the book, Lilly said: ‘I am so thrilled to write my first book and share, all in one place what I’ve learned about achieving success and happiness . This journey has taught me to always pick yourself up, not allow anything to stand in your way and that the one secret to achieving your dreams is hardwork.’

Lilly Singh will be in India on a book tour in the second week of April. She will be holding the book events in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi on April 19, 20 and 21 respectively and will be available for media interaction.

The Book

‘From actress, comedian and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh (a.k.a Superwoman) comes the definitive guide to being a BAWSE – a person who exudes confidence, reaches goals, gets hurt efficiently, and smiles genuinely because they’ve fought through it all and made it out the other side.

Told in her hilarious, bold voice that’s inspired over 9 million fans, and using stories from her own life to illustrate her message, Lilly proves that there are no short-cuts to success.

WARNING: This book does not include hopeful thoughts, lucky charms, and cute quotes. That’s because success, happiness and everything else you want in life needs to be fought for – not wished for. In Lilly’s world, there are no escalators. Only stairs.’
