Publisher's Summary

Look, maybe you're a nice girl, but we're guessing you're more like us or you probably wouldn't have downloaded this audiobook. 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 audiobook is about getting what you want. Not in 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.

Taken with a light heart, this book is fabulous!

This book by no means is a guide to live a happy life nor should the advice in the book be taken seriously. That being said it is a very entertaining read scattered with some lessons of life that all young women encounter at some point in their lives. If you are in college or soon approaching, consider this book a part of your freshman orientation.

Waste of a Credit

What disappointed you about Nice Is Just a Place in France?

I'm 25 so maybe I am too old for this book - I can appreciate the humor and snark in this book but it is essentially a guide for idiot girls. Maybe I would have liked this when I was 18 or 19 but honestly its a bit too much for me now. However, if you're a hot mess who only likes to party their ass off then this book is for you.

Has humor to it and very entertaining

I couldn't stop listening, kept me super amused. May not be your type of book if your over 30 it has a young vibe to it. And we'll the scenarios identify more with that younger age group.

Only if you're 18-22

This book has a few fun lines and obviously it's not meant to be taken too seriously - but I didn't enjoy it aside from a few lol moments from one liners. Not worth it. Sorry!

Hilarious

If you are not a fan of satires (or don't get it) stay away from this one...

Fun Book that could be scary

I have read the book, given the book as a gift and listened to the audio. It can be humorous or scary. Humor: It can be funny, comparing this to people you know, and hoping that person is not you. Scary: This can be a total honor story if you consider that a teen could read this and use it as a guide. Unfortunate to say that some may actually follow this as a bible. It is the "Betch Bible", apposed to "Bro Guide". This book is great with wine.

Skewed definition of what “nice” is

“The real victim is women’s denigration of themselves”, after denigrating general women who aren’t popular, aren’t what every man wants to date, and even calls out a specific woman they chose was a “nice” girl.

Describes the original “betch” (their own word) in high school AS a bitch, then says that being a bitch is different.

Couldn’t get any further into the book than the first chapter; once they started talking about using manipulation to get what you want, I’m out.
