Product description

Review

"I adore, admire and - more - am addicted to Caitin Moran's writing" (Nigella Lawson)

"I have been waiting for this book my whole life" (Claudia Winkleman)

"This might just be the funniest intelligent book ever written .. Moran's work packs a feminist punch in a way that Germaine Greer and an entire army of female eunuchs could never do, because she writes about things we've all done, thought, and said - but not quite so eloquently...the book everyone will be talking about" (Stylist)

"Moran's writing sparkles with wit and warmth. Like the confidences of your smartest friend" (Simon Pegg)

"It would almost be unkind to call this an important book, because what it mostly is is engaging, brave and consistently, cleverly naughtily funny, but actually it is important that we talk about this stuff" (Katy Guest Independent on Sunday)

Book Description

A new way to look at feminism from Caitlin Moran, one of our funniest writers

Not bad. I enjoyed it overall but it is reflective of the 90's ladette culture which I was a little old for and the emphasis on being drunk most of the time and lots of sexual partners is wearisome and a little sad. Shame, because the commentary on the partiarchical state is informative and thought provoking. I initially bought it for my teen daughter, but I really can't let her read it.

Not impressed at all. As a 33 year old woman I thought it might be quite insightful to read this book, however all I saw was the f word used in practically every other sentence and a woman trying to prove (beg the world into believing) she's a feminist. Not a book I'd recommend to waste your time or money on. And personally no where close to the "funniest book of the year" or "The book EVERY [sic] woman should read".

Laugh out loud (or indeed, snort out loud, spurting out coffee / wine) funny but insightful and touching too. Honestly, if you haven't read this, you're just not doing it right... Or you are but it's so good to see how right you've been all along even when you thought you were wrong / the only one..

This book needs to be read by every mother. You then need to buy it for your teenager. There is a massive amount of wisdom and attitude in this book. It will teach (you and) your daughter to respect herself . It will teach your son to respect the women in his life.

Funny, emotional, intelligent - this book is for all women. Caitlin Moran discusses topics so clearly almost as if she is reading your mind and making sense of the jumble of thoughts there.

Interesting reading. Especially the first part of the book is brilliant and really funny. Some memorable stories about 70s from a feminist point of view

I've never read any of her stuff before and it started off great, funny, touching, irreverent but it kind of descended into a pit of a place I didn't want to go... The chapter on abortion was just a chapter too much for me, deeply sad, very upsetting and not required.

Totally hilarious.
Agree with others that majority of the shouty caps-locks are unnecessary. She's such a fantastic writer, she needn't rely at all on formatting.
