3.0 out of 5 stars Looks great but useless, 19 April 2013

This chic petite clock (at the risk of sounding sexist) is like so many chic petite girls - looks great but does not match up to it's appearance - or perform - the alarm is too low to wake me up!

How To Be a Woman
How To Be a Woman
by Caitlin Moran
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars What makes women tick..., 12 Sept. 2011
This review is from: How To Be a Woman (Paperback)
As a man wanting to know what makes women tick the book intrigued me but I felt that the clearly well read author 'dumbed down' the intelligence level of her prose to appeal to a lower common denominator woman - emphasis on 'common' the new 'norm' in Britain - unless her story is all actual and she speaks as she writes - in which case she can be forgiven.
