About The Book
#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.

Raves and Reviews
"She’s a bestselling bitch!" —Lisa Vanderpump
"Next Level Basic, to its great credit, does the not-easy task of translating Stassi’s on-screen personality to text; you genuinely can hear her on the page…refreshing to read.” –The Cut
“In “Next Level Basic” and her podcast, “Straight Up With Stassi,” before it, Ms. Schroeder aims to connect with her audience over things the culture at large has dismissed as unimportant and uncool. If you’d rather watch “90-Day Fiancé” than “True Detective,” who cares?” –The New York Times
“There’s something for everyone under Schroeder’s big basic umbrella.” –Elle
“Everything it promises to be and more.” –The Observer
