Insightful essays, poignant life advice, and pithy pearls of wisdom from one of comedy’s brightest rising stars 

COMEDIAN, WRITER, ACTRESS, and social media star Amanda Seales is a force of nature who has fearlessly and passionately charted her own course through life and career. Now, in her one-of-a-kind voice that blends academic intellectualism, Black American colloquialisms, and pop culture fanaticism, she’s bringing her life’s lessons and laughs to the page. This volume of essays, axioms, original illustrations, and photos provides Seales’s trademark “self-help from the hip” style of commentary, fueled by ideology formed from her own victories, struggles, research, mistakes, risks, and pay-offs. Unapologetic, fiercely funny, and searingly honest, Small Doses engages, empowers, and enlightens readers on how to find their truths while still finding the funny!

“It is Amanda’s commitment to her own growth and transformation that creates an empowering space for us all, even in our vulnerabilities. These ‘gems’ announce Amanda as one of the most important voices in our culture!”
— Brandon Victor Dixon, Actor/Producer/Advocate

“Amanda’s clarity and wisdom can only be obtained from hard lessons learned over a three-decade career in entertainment and activism. Amanda is a person who is constantly morphing into a better version of herself while at the same time never changing her core values. We stand to learn a lot.”
— Roy Wood Jr., Comedian/Correspondent, the Daily Show With Trevor Noah
“Amanda is Smart and Funny as Hell. Brave and uncensored, she will tell you the truth about yourself in a way that even you have to laugh at. She be knowing, ’cause she takes the time to consider and find out, but most of all because she cares. Brains are the new Tits.”
— Cree Summer, Musician, Actress, Mama
