NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
Discover how to embrace your best basic self in this laugh-out-loud funny guidebook from the breakout star of Bravo’s hit reality show Vanderpump Rules, perfect for fans of the relatable and entertaining books by The Betches and Andi Dorfman.
Millions of Vanderpump Rules viewers and podcast listeners know Stassi Schroeder as a major defender of Basic Bitch rights. There’s nothing more boring than people who take themselves too seriously or think that you have to be pretentious to be cool. Stassi champions the things that many of us are afraid to love publicly for fear of being labeled basic: lattes, pugs, bubbly cocktails, millennial pink, #OOTD (outfit of the day, obvs), astrology, hot dogs, the perfect pair of Louboutins, romantic comedies...the list goes on and on.
This book is for people tired of pretending they would rather see a Daniel Day-Lewis movie about sewing or read War and Peace than watch a Saw marathon or read...well, this book!
In Next Level Basic, the reality star, podcast queen, and ranch dressing expert gives you hilarious and pointed lessons on how to have fun and celebrate yourself, with exclusive stories from her own life and on the set of Vanderpump Rules. From her very public breakups to her most intimate details about her plastic surgery, Stassi shares her own personal experiences with her trademark honesty—all with the hope you can learn something from them.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Like the conversation at a boozy brunch with friends, Next Level Basic is confessional, intimate, and laugh-out-loud funny—exactly what we’d expect from Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder. This breezy advice book encourages us to forget the haters, enjoy what we enjoy...and yes, slam that pumpkin spice latte. Underneath the hashtags, jokey charts and graphs, and her obsession with ranch dressing, Stassi has a point: Unapologetically owning our likes and dislikes makes us bulletproof when it comes to the criticism and negativity of others. Reading this book made us feel more confident in ourselves—while we ordered another avocado toast.

This is the best book for finding yourself, embracing the quirks and weirdness, and truly owning it like a boss! Don’t ever make excuses for who you are! Embrace your basicness!
Love Stassi, but not impressed
I was so excited to read this! I even bought it for myself and for two of my friends as presents. I was disappointed by the writing. Some of the stories were interesting, but I found the book to be very repetitive! Why do we need a summary of EVERY chapter?!
