5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 16 Mar 2011
I read Julie Klausner's initial essay about dating an indie rock manboy a while back and was massively excited to read this book (and stoked about it's imminent TV transfer)

I'll confess, another reason I bought it is I read the only other review on here from some woman who hated it and talked about how it wasn't light hearted of Sex And The City enough and I was sold.

This book is awesome. Julie Klausner is smart and funny and lyrical and able to find the humour in the aftermath of failed relationships like no-one I've ever known. It would be easy for this book to come off as bitter and man hating, but instead it's warm, funny and sarcastic. Like the big sister you always wanted.

Although, you're probably not going to love this if you tend to buy books with pastel colours and flouncy type. You've been warned.

Smart girls bitterness free dating almanac.


The Big Book of Breakfasts: Serious Comfort Food for Any Time of the Day (Chronicle Big Book)
The Big Book of Breakfasts: Serious Comfort Food for Any Time of the Day (Chronicle Big Book)
by Maryana Vollstedt
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Picture free but efficient, 16 Mar 2011
This book features pretty much every breakfast and brunch recipe you'll ever need. It lacks a lot of "wow" food photography, but lets face it, most people know what breakfast looks like.

The frittata section alone makes this a worthwhile investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, 1 Mar 2011
I bought this book because I'll buy anything that touches on social anthropology and the 90s, mostly they're a let down. This was the opposite. Funny, insightful and a perfect antidote to the cynicism of the decade it deals with. If you ever find yourself wondering where all the smart people went, how things ended up this way and how we can possibly get out of this, then you should give this book a go.
