About the book: Everyone’s go-to source for bracingly smart takes on pop culture through her enormously popular blog AwesomelyLuvvie.com, Luvvie Ajayi has become a bulwark of good humor and crucial common sense at what can seem a nonsensical time. I’M JUDGING YOU calls out and dissects the cultural obsessions that have arisen and the bad behavior that has befallen us in these increasingly digital and digitally-connected times. With a lighthearted, rapier wit and a unique perspective, Luvvie supplies the good manners handbook the world needs now, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some "act right"  to our public interactions, our social media, our relationships, and our lives.

About the author: Ajayi is an award-winning writer, pop-culture critic, and professional troublemaker who thrives at the intersection of comedy, technology, and activism. She is the person who often says what you're thinking but dared not say because you have a filter and a job to protect. She is also a digital strategist, noted speaker, core team member on Glennon Doyle’s “Together” tour, and executive director of The Red Pump Project, a national HIV/AIDS organization.
