From the Fab Five—the beloved hosts of Netflix's viral hit Queer Eye—comes a book that is at once a behind-the-scenes exclusive, a practical guide to living and celebrating your best life, and a symbol of hope.
Feeling your best is about far more than deciding what color to paint your accent wall or how to apply nightly moisturizer. It's also about creating a life that's we

5 out of 5 stars

I loved this! Each of the Fab 5 gave little introductions about themselves and tips on how to live your best life from beauty/cosmetics/hair, fashion, culture/how to achieve your goals, interior design and food (including recipes). The tips are very helpful for both women and men of all ages.
If you love Queer Eye on Netflix and have always wanted to glam up your life a little then I'm sure you can find some tips and guidance in this book (I know I did).

This is my favorite show. It’s heartwarming and wholesome, and it just makes me feel happy and inspired. The book’s a little light on content, but it’s still lovely, and it did help ease the withdrawal now that we’re between seasons.

What a fun book! I love watching the revamped version of Queer Eye on Netflix. Every single one of these men brings their own special personality to the table, and the show is so entertaining because of it. I expected a lot from this book, and it delivered.

The book is divided into two sections. The first half gives the personal backstories of each guy (which is fascinating. My goodness, they sure have been through some things...). The second half talks more about each of their "specialty areas"

This is a fun read for fans of the show, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which my son introduced me to earlier this year. It was interesting to read the back stories of the presenters and there were many great photographs. I didn't care for some of the neon colored graphics, and black and white cross-hatched pages, which I found a bit eye boggling!

I love these boys and I love this book. The. End.
I feel like, for a book that is a tie-in to a tv series, this is a 5 star book. Honestly, I wanted MORE about the making of the show and less of the advice, but the whole thing is worth it for Karamo's chapter which I think I might photocopy and hang over my desk to start 2019 off right.

If you are a fan of the show, you will love it. Not sure if it will appeal to anyone else not familiar with the Fab Five and their hijinks.

So lucky that this book came into my library. My coworker in charge of getting the books registered got it all ready and checked out to me. I don't often ask to do that, I just put my name down on the book on a post it but she went ahead and got it in for me. These fine fab gay guys make me very happy. I have been watching their episodes over and over again because this has been a hard year for me and it's still not over yet. I love the recipes and the lessons on style and decorating and communi ...more

I recently watched some of the new Netflix reboot of Queer Eye, and found myself googling the stars' backgrounds. Now there is a book for dorks like me!

My hard copy doesn't arrive for another week (thanks a lot, Booktopia--never again), but before I even realised that, I found out that the audiobook is going to be narrated by the Fab Five themselves. Holy shit! I knew I had to get my hands on the audiobook as well. I literally signed up for Audible just for this very reason and chose this as my first audiobook, which is free. I didn't plan on listening to this until after I've read the hard copy, but I got impatient so I decided, screw it.

First book of 2019 is done and I loved it, mainly because it‘s just about the fab 5 which I absolutely adore!!

Sweet, upbeat, and positive. If you watch the show, you might enjoy learning a little about the stars' backgrounds. Most of the other content, to me, read very much like a women's magazine articles on things like skin care, home decor, and otherwise living your best life. (Maybe not a surprise, given that the book was written with Monica Corcoran Harel, whose other writing credits include the magazine Marie Claire.) I'm giving it five stars because I love the show and I appreciate the book's rel ...more

I don't think there is anything else in our culture right now that is as wholesome and feel good as Queer Eye. It is the highest form of self-care. This book was such a great read- it was just like settling into your favorite episode and hanging out with the Fab Five for a bit .

Love the Fab 5 so much ! This book is a journey with them, and it's like the show : a feel-good moment ! Full of inspirational tips and talks. Loved it ! It's beautifully done and the pictures are great.

Love the show. Love the book. Love the Fab Five!

Good but at times repetitive and tedious.
Nov 25, 2018 rated it really liked it
It was sweet to hear more of the backstories of each of the Fab Five and, while there is a ghost writer on this book, each of their segments felt written in their own voice. Many of the self-helpy portions felt like pretty standard fare but shockingly I have actually already tried/loved one of Antoni's recipes so, for a kitchen-averse person, that is high praise!

Don't go expecting a Pulitzer - entertaining and frothy, while each of the Fab Five's personal stories are genuinely interesting.

If you love the TV show, this is a worthwhile read.

Let's start with the obvious point here. It is best to watch Queer Eye on Netflix to get the full effect of what the book is bringing to you, which is two points - one, this book contain tons of self-help and self-care tips and ideas on being a better version of yourself and two, the five men making these points each have bold personalities that can only been felt during the show. Bonus points if you are also following them on social media.

Assuming that you have (or maybe you didn't like when I

Queer Eye is a comprehensive, informative guide to improving your life and your mindset. Each of the fab five have written a chapter that focuses on their speciality – grooming, clothing, attitude, food and decorating.

The book is filled with plenty of advice for everyone, whether you’re fashionably challenged or a terrible cook or worried about your hair or your complexion. This book also details a lot of personal information from each of the guys. Bobby’s parents didn’t

Copy received from Hachette Australia for an honest review

I was hooked on the new Queer Eye from the minute I started watching it, and this book is a great companion for the show.

I was interested in knowing more about this fab five, and Love Yourself. Love Your Life gives me just what I was looking for, with a bit about themselves and some fabulous tips from each of their areas of expertise.

This would be a great coffee table book that you could pick up at will and get a few tips on how to love y

Somehow I didn't know about this book until I saw it on my library's 'new arrivals' page, but I am trash for the Queer Eye show, so I just had to read it.

I really didn't have massive expectations for this; I just wanted more Queer Eye content. But boy, I was pleasantly surprised. The first chunk of the book consist of a chapter by each of the Fab Five about their life, and I actually learned a fair but about them that hadn't ever come up in the show, which I though was neat.

Synopsis: A new Fab Five is out and about on Netflix and I LOVE THEM! Normally I don’t binge TV, but these guys watch like a great book. They have taken their television show and put it into a book. A nice intro to the new team starts the book. Then, tips for all aspects of life are given by each of the guys in his area of specialty to be your best self.

My rating: 4 Stars for audio, but so dang close to a 5 it isn’t funny. Here is the thing. I listened to this book and they spoke fast that it wa

Queer Eye: Love Yourself, Love Your Life is the ultimate guide for all readers that will introduce you to the best ideas for your hair, style, home, personality and hosting needs. I fell in love with the Fab Five and binge watched all two seasons of the amazing Netflix show, Queer Eye, at a time that I probably needed such positive, happy people to look up to the most. Each of these wonderful guys bring their own invaluable skills and personality to the table, but become a powerful force togethe ...more
