Book Overview

Brutally honest, often hilarious, hard-won lessons in learning to love and care for yourself from a former vice president at Comedy Central who was called ahead of her time by Jordan Peele

You're going to want Tara Schuster to become your new best friend.--Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Untamed

Compelling, persuasive, and useful no matter where you are in your life.--Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Life Will Be the Death of Me

By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing. She realized she'd hit rock bottom when she drunk-dialed her therapist pleading for help.

Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is the story of Tara's path to re-parenting herself and becoming a ninja of self-love. Through simple, daily rituals, Tara transformed her mind, body, and relationships, and shows how to

   I don’t get the hype
The beginning was good and seems to apply to most people and I may take some ideas about journaling. As the book went on, the author sounds like a very basic, whiny, stereotypical LA girl. Most of the end doesn 't apply in a happy relationship to anyone. It is difficult to relate to someone who can suddenly buy a ticket to NY for funsies, who says Suzanne Somers was a family friend whose sister was the subject of a national enquirer article-who worked for Comedy Central at a young age and then LAI just can 't get the hype.

   Oh I bought the flowers and then some!!!
I love this book ''. I lend it away to clients and LOVE the refreshing way she approaches self-care. This is a powerful book and such a life saver in this called 2020! I KNOW all of this, I use positive psychology, all the things I know, but seeing Tara apply it in the real world and share her authentic story is gold and VERY MOTIVATING. I'll buy a lot of this book and give it to a LOT. Diana's love is always fair enough, despite the pricey Diana.

   Hell yeah! Must read easygoing, deep and practical
I stumbled upon this book because I was recommended by my dear book lover Bff and saw a light in it... It was hard to get warmed up to it, but I kept going... there was something real, strong, universal... funny and helpful. I recommend this book to anyone passionate about self-care and flourishing in life! Even if you are already far on the self-care road, you will appreciate your own victories more and connect with all those pieces you have integrated with magic glue on your way... and you may find new tools to use them! There are never enough great ideas to use! I used some to fine tune my own wall - I especially loved and incorporated the idea of hype - men, road warriors and no way... ever... and thank you cards! Enjoy and journal on!

   FABULOUS: buy it immediately!
Ohmygosh, i LOVED this book. It was like having a friend talk you down and sit you straight. I don 't want to reveal anything, but think of girl Wash Your Face with brene Brown's voice. Pitch perfect. Too bad i didn 't read this in time for giving it as a mother's day. It will be a winter holiday gift DEF. My FAVE book of 2020 so far is my FAVE book of 2020.

   Drivel
I couldn t make it past chapter 3, because I couldn t make it past chapter 3. What a bunch of Drivel. I kept remembering therapists and psychologists who entered the profession to help people, but kept having self-obsessed patients like Tara. First world problems, first world problems. Your self-imposed neurosis is selfish and stupid.

   Love love love. Thank you for this, Tara.
During a depression, I stumble upon this book. I was looking for reasons to stay alive. I read the description and was even more intrigued ''. I am so happy that I bought this book. I cried, laughed, felt and understood. I feel like I have gained a new friend and I will reread it most definitely. I gained so much through her stories and experiences, that I've gained so much. I call it my healing Bible. She's written this book in a way that has spoken to me deeper than any other I've ever read. This review isn't even doing the justice I wish to provide.

   Wonderful, insightful, and modern
Not for those with hang ups about the ladies swearing. Very thoughtful and relatable book with tangible steps for how to repent yourself. A must for anyone who grew up with self-absorbing parents or slow-simmering trauma. I loved it and am already working through the advice! It is the best self-help book I have come across for the unique challenges of millennial adults.

   Enjoyable but not for everyone
I've read several Help books, but I really enjoyed reading this one. Not for everybody and not the typical narrative of self-help ''. I was related to the being a hot mess and the non-stop panic madness that will never turn off! '' Thank you for the great job! ''

   Probably best "read" as an audio book
I was not aware and am not at all sure what the authors'credentials are, comedian, author or executive? I found it difficult to follow, as it seems to be somewhat autobiographical and self-help and comedy central in all. Too much flight of ideas to my taste, so I really couldn t get into the book. The title implies just a fun book, but is overkill. I think one might enjoy it more as an audio book, as it reads like a liners from a comedian. Sorry about my cup of tea, not my cup of tea. I received this book as a complimentary copy for an unbiased review, and the opinions expressed are mine.

   Hilarious, actionable and too real
I have read my share of self-careimprovementhelp books and have found many to be full of dull platitudes or feigned vulnerability. And here comes Tara with some REAL TALK and here comes Tara with some REAL TALK. At the same time, she makes you laugh and cry, you want to hug her and cheer her on. I was skeptical of the exercises, but started doing them all within a few days... and guess what? I was skeptical of the exercises. They worked : I already gifted this book a dozen times! I've already gifted this book a dozen times! Great work, looking forward to the sequel. Great work!
