After having followed Luvvie Ajayi for a while I was super excited to hear she was writing a book. I knew the book would contain real life facts and lessons while also making me laugh to stitches. I’m Judging You: The Do Better Manual offers an enlightening read without the 'holier than thou' message you encounter from these other “live your life like this” books on the shelves these days. Ajayi unapologetically exposes behavior that has been normalized by breaking them down into four parts: LIFE, CULTURE, SOCIAL MEDIA and FAME.
Ajayi tackles societal drama such as fake friendships, racism, hashtags and more throughout the book and questions the toxic habits that we have all been guilty of. I dare anyone of you to say you don’t have any old tweets from when Twitter first popped off that you wish you hadn’t shared. I am ready to call YOU out sis. I appreciate that Luvvie Ajayi addresses light topics and heavy topics alike, offering perspective to matters that may be uncomfortable to discuss but need to be brought to light.
In the end, Ajayi calls her readers to action while quoting Shirley Chisolm “Service to others is the rent you pay for your space here on earth.” Ajayi then writes “Some of us are mad delinquent on this rent. We owe back pay, but that’s okay. We just need to start now. We can start doing better any time we want”. This book is for anyone that values honesty and is open to new ideas and views on various subjects while enjoying a good giggle.
