Description

Foreword by Jane Fonda

A timeless collection of philosophies from renaissance performer and the world’s most famous shape-shifter RuPaul, whose sage outlook has created an unprecedented career for more than 35 years. GuRu illustrates the concept of building the life you want from the outside in and the inside out.

"You’re born naked, and the rest is drag."

As someone who has deconstructed life’s hilarious facade, RuPaul has broken "the fourth wall" to expand on the concept of mind, body, and spirit. This unique perspective has allowed RuPaul to break the shackles of self-imposed limitations, but listener beware, this is a daily practice that requires diligence and touchstones to keep you walking in the sunshine of the spirit. Once you’re willing to look beyond the identity that was given to you, a hidden world of possibilities will open its doors.

Throughout the history of humans on this planet, there’ve always been shaman, seers, and mediums who are able to interpret both high and low frequencies and remind humans to look beyond the surface for the truth of who we really are. And who we really are is an extension of the power that created the universe (aka: God in drag). FYI: Most people are not willing to hear or accept that.

That is RuPaul’s secret for success, not only in show business but in all aspects of life, especially in navigating the emotional landmines that inhibit most sweet, sensitive souls.

If you think this audiobook is just about "doing drag", you are sorely mistaken because for RuPaul, drag is merely a device to deactivate the identity-based ego and allow space for the unlimited.

Please note: All photos referenced in this audio recording can be found in the hardcover or ebook edition of GuRu, available wherever books are sold.

Trop court !

J'adore et admire RuPaul mais c'est le premier livre de lui que j'écoute. La narration par l'auteur lui-même est parfaite. On y retrouve tous les ingrédients made in RuPaul : gentillesse, bienveillance, conseils, humour, mais c'est trop court !!! C'est juste pour ça que la note est de 4 étoiles.

Do not purchase

This is not suited for audio. They just talk about pictures in the book that you can’t see. Huuuuge disappoints.

Truly GuRulicious!

I originally pre-ordered this book, and then when it came out, to my suprise, its a short one- only 1 Hr and 15 minutes, so I knew it was more of an essay than a book, per-say, but Ru unleashes his wisdom onto the world of audiobook readers, as he always does from his TV Show, to DragCon, etc. I am and always have/will be a huge fan of Mother Ru, and rightfully so, who else can give such clear perspective on decades of learning things about how to give stereotypes and gender the middle finger? I consider myself fortunate to read the lessons he divulges in this quaint, precise mini-memoir of knowledge, because from everyone that I've seen on YouTube or interviews where people say they 'encounter' Ru, they always describe his energy as 'Larger than Life'..he has that thing, like Anna Nicole Smith or Cher, that certain..."je ne sais quoi". Ru opens by giving us the tea straight up, served piping hot, gives you really solid advice on how to perceive yourself, your soul, and how to ignore those who wish us harm- I would only be so lucky to build a life that closely resembles his, because he's inspirational on so many levels, and there will never be another quite like him...her...let's just say Mother.

Not Great as an Audio Book Experience Alone

The biggest problem with this book as an audio experience is the fact that there is no companion PDF by design despite how much of the text makes reference to photos in the original book. I had not noticed that the synopsis of this work made mention of this as most other biographies of this nature tend to include a PDF by default so this was out of the norm. In terms of actual content the work ends up feeling a little disorganized. It's merely a collection of seemingly random RuPaul quotes strung together with references to photos that might have given the book more structure. I love RuPaul and he does have a lot of great things to share. But admittedly we've already heard most of them on his various television shows and this book just puts them all together in a stream of consciousness flow. It's an okay book but it could have been a lot better.

Breath taking

I bought this audible book with 0 expectations in mind. I’ve always been a huge RuPaul fan. He’s such an honest, bold, and full of life person. This book has been the highlight of my morning drive to work and proves as a good outline for accepting amazing things into your life, because you deserve it. I’m a mother to 3 children, and with the oldest one in jr high, most our days are filled with drama and running around. It’s easy to lose track of yourself and the focus on positive mental health. This book served as a wonderful reminder of how lucky I am to be their mother and moved my perspective back to enjoying the journey vs dreading “what’s next” I so enjoyed hearing his voice and laughter and caught myself laughing and even got goosebumps a couple times. Thanks Mama Ru, I needed that.

Disappointed

I've always liked and followed RuPaul but this was a very short book with not enough facts. I wanted to know more about how he rose from his past to the present; can't do that in one hour. Disappointed.

Meh...

Being a huge follower of RuPaul, I had high hopes for this book, but it was not nearly what I expected. It was minimally insightful, seemingly disjointed, and not what I hoped for from the glamazon I love so much.

Redundant

If you listen to his podcast, you don't need this book. Listen to the podcast for the same messages

“Meh”

To quote Mother Ru’s reaction to the Nina West/Silky Nutmeg Ganache lip sync: “Meh.” Too many New Age platitudes. It felt as if Ru was just reading a list of random spiritual ideas he had jotted down in a notebook over the years. The ideas lacked cohesion, and Ru missed the opportunity to ground those ideas in her story. I suppose GuRu would make a lovely coffee table book—short blurbs with photos, more visual than literary.

RuPaul for President!

Rupaul is such an inspiring figure of our time! His wisdom and deep kindness coupled with a large dollop if shade, challenges us all to step our pussy up. Love you, Ru!

Well well well

To be honest i was not so sure and impressed with the second book of mama Ru. As an atheist it felt wit was too religious and more like a spiritual guidance than a book for everyone. “mehh”

Everybody say love!!

Absolutely inspiring and eye opening. I saw myself I'm so many instances that I was in awe. However, realizing that also made me realize that I haven't been living my 100% me. Trust it will be lived from here on :-)

Für Fans ganz nett

ich liebe rupaul und ich liebe drag. In diesem Buch werden verschiedene Teile seines Lebens ebenso wie kleine Exkurse in die Lebenshilfe gegeben. Wer schon bereits ähnliche Bücher über law of attraction, power of now oder andere Lebenshilfe-Bücher gelesen hat wird einiges wiedererkennen. Alles wird eher angerissen und dann geht es meist mit einem komplett anderen Thema weiter. Ich war geschockt, dass das Buch so kurz ist. Alles in allem - wer Fan ist freut sich darf aber nicht zu viel erwarten. Wer mehr möchte und tatsächlich Tipps und Tricks will holt sich das Buch von Michelle Visage. Das ist amüsant, ehrlich und hilfreich- zudem geht es auch länger als diese Cash Cow.
