I really enjoyed it but I may be bias since I love Naya Rivera! Would recommend if you need something to listen to like at work

What would have made Sorry Not Sorry better?
A little more humility. She brags so hard that it was painful to listen to, especially during her child-actor years. I was hoping this would be a deeper exploration into her upbringing and that she had somehow overcome HUGE odds and it might make me think that she's more than just a bland actress. Not so much, she's just a normal girl thinking she's really got talent. I wish I hadn't spent a credit on this, or that I'd contributed to her big headed idea that she's somehow still relevant. I'm all for confidence, but there should be more self-awareness.
What could Naya Rivera have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
She made mistakes in her youth. I get it, we all make mistakes. But the way she describes them and the way she overcame them is like she's the first one to ever make them and like she's giving us these amazing revelations/answers. These are the same mistakes that teenagers and young adults have been making for a veryyyy long time. She's not more special for them, just because she was a child actress. She's not even particularly brilliant in her revelations. You managed money poorly. You were broke. You were in debt. With some advice from your parents, you got out of debt. You learned a lesson. Whoop whoop. Many of us have been there too, and you don't see us writing books about it.
Any additional comments?
The only redeeming piece of the book was when she was describing her abortion and the difficulty of it. It was the first point in the book where it felt like she was relatable and I really felt like she had been through something tragic.
