Part autobiography, part self help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut book delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips. If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your thirties, cried so much you felt great, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is YOUR book. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, this is YOUR book. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, this is YOUR book. This hardback book has 298 pages and measures: 24 x 16 x 2.6cm

Sarah Millican is a national treasure - she is warm, humane and wise. Reading 'How to be Champion' has the feel-good factor of an excellent girls' night out with your very best friends without having to suffer a nasty hangover the next morning.
Ms Milligan is not just funny, she has the rare gift of being smutty without being offensive, and being candid without being hurtful; she pulls no punches with her honesty and she is a great role model for women of all ages and sizes. I am proud of her, and not just because it turns out she was brought up a few streets away from me in my home town of South Shields, it just adds to her overall fabulousness.
Loved it. A joy forever.
Everyone else - go for it!
Its an enjoyable collection of tales from Sarah's life. Some are amusing, some sad. You don't have to be her biggest fan to enjoy it, but I think you'll enjoy it more if you already have an appreciation of her, her work and her comedy style.
Also, anyone who grew up in a nearby area at roughly the same time as her will get a few little memory trips to their own North Easterly childhood (I hadn't thought of Binn's for years!)
I apologise profusely to all of the other drivers I scared the living biscuit out of who could see me proper wetting myself laughing.
Well done Sarah, your first book and it’s a bloody doozy.
Much of the book is a traditional autobiography, detailing her life from childhood to the present, but each chapter tends to have a theme, such as how to be a comedian, why she doesn't want kids, and so on. It's a funny read, but I felt that it fizzled out a little towards the end, as there do seem to be some "padding" chapters, such as her favourite cake recipe. Still funny, but I felt it was overlong.
All in all, it's a quick, fun read, and if you're a fan of Sarah's you'll love it.
Sarah's knack of just saying it 'how it is', is very funny and to the point very open and sharing, that I can relate to what Sarah has said or even done.
There was nothing I didn't like about this book, the chapters were short, well titled and was written as if she was in the room with you having a conversation.
I would highly recommend this book if you like Sarah Millican.
