The creators of the popular blog BetchesLoveThis.com use their signature wit and wisdom to teach you how to make it in a dangerous world filled with nice girls and carbs.
LOOK, MAYBE YOU’RE A NICE GIRL, but we’re guessing you’re more like us or you probably wouldn’t have picked up this book. Not that we have a problem with girls who are nice people. But being nice is just not the way to get what you want. And this book is about getting what you want. Not in like a finding happiness, giving back to the world, being grateful for what you have sort of way. But in a ruling your world, being the most desired, powerful badass in the room way, so you can come out on top of any situation: guys, career, friends, enemies, whatever.
How does a betch make that happen?
Here are some highlights:
DON’T BE EASY.
DON’T BE POOR.
DON’T BE UGLY.
We didn’t come up with these life lessons. We’re just the ones who wrote it all down. This is not self-help. Self-help is for fat people and divorcées. This is how to deal with your problems when you have no problems. You’re welcome.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I thought this book would offer practical advice but is actually just a parody of today's most shallow women. It's a fun read though.
Love this book!! Told all my friends about it.
Definitely a page turner. Infused with up to date pop culture references and a clear perspective on how to life for the high maintenance betch in her twenties.
I didn't like this book at all, granted I didn't finish it. From the beginning I was turned off by what seemed to be a "women earn success by tearing each other down" mentality.
Definitely for the new adult crowd. But an older Betch can use some of the advice, such as being more confident and believing in herself.
Funniest book i've read this year!
