Mama Ru makes the world a better place and this is her bible. Gorgeous photos and advice and insight into this hilarious, gorgeous and ageless performer. Rupaul brings a smile to my face, a glow to my heart and fierce and fabulous drag queens to the mass market, thanks Ru. Now can I get an amen up in here!

Ru is definitely the Drag Oprah and he does give some great advice in this book. But they key advice any drag queen will give you is be you, whoever that is today. I do agree with the formatting being a little off in the kindle edition however it's easy enough to get past.
I feel like his advice on positive living and his own experiences are clear and easy to follow, he has an almost Buddhist approach to spirituality and ideas around our mind/body which has echoes of Scientology but the book is in no way preach-y.
He does also spend some time on hair and make up which is quite vague (basically get someone else to do it) and fashion, diet and photography advice which could be helpful to men, women and what's inbetween. However the clear message of this book is about confidence and self acceptance and a strong work ethic, and even though it's quite short this comes across along with his great personality and outlook on life.

After seeing images of the printed book I thought that the kindle version would be just as visually stimulating. However, the layout looks a lot like an amateur e-pub made on Microsoft word. This means the amazing photography loses its impact. I also managed to read the whole book in a single commute so it's not a very lengthy book either. It's a nice enough read and the sort of book you can pick up now and then for a little confidence booster.

Oops! Rupaul is an intelligent, savvy man with undoubtedly a wealth of life experience to offer .Unfortunately I don't believe this book scratches the wealth of knowledge he could give. To be honest I feel a bit ripped off paying full price for this the book feels more like a kindle 99p book. The content of eating sensibly, not smoking, being sensible with money, using tape for holding things in place doesn't feel worth the money.

Love Ru. Love Drag Race. Love this book!

The only downer is that the Kindle edition has some odd formatting. What I assume are sidebars in the book, and pages of photos, break up the main body throughout, so you'll be reading one topic then suddenly you're reading about another, before jumping back, and then photos will break up sections. It's a bit hard to work out if you're reading a photo caption, a pullout quote, or a section header. It's still readable though, but I found it very distracting.

Full of charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. A refreshing way of looking at the world with some pearls of wisdom. As with any book, take it with a pinch of salt. For me it has been incredibly inspiring and has clearly been written with love and compassion... But I'm not quite as euphoric about colonic irrigation as Ru is ;'-D

If you can't love yourself. .. This book will help.

This book is full of useful tips and advice from RuPaul, and if RuPaul says it, it's true! But honestly this book has really good life and style advice for everyone. I think anyone could read this book and find helpful tips for them. It's a really good book!
