About the Author
Ruth Graham's first career was as a stand-up comic, where the early days of mass-rejection helped shape the tongue-in-cheek wry outlook that now defines her writing. Her other exploits have included everything from working on cruise liners, to songwriting in London, to launching and editing her own glossy interiors magazine. Despite all this, she was deemed a constant disappointment by her now-departed, very traditional Yorkshire parents, whose classic 'encouragement' included the lines, 'Well, you can't be happy all your life' and 'The sooner you learn to cook mince properly, the sooner you'll find a husband'. Despite such sage advice, Ruth preferred to fall back on a variety of interesting careers, life experiences and even more interesting men, Now in her early 40s, she's old enough to not care what the neighbours think, but young enough to still try and breakdance at parties. Now a full-time writer and part-time bellydance teacher, her motto is 'it's never too late to be a late starter'!

This is of the same standard, and deceptively clever. Full of real wit and clever observations, all divided into categories that are easy to dip in and out of. And I thought the quiz at the beginning was hilarious too.
Really liked it - there's stuff for all ages and it would make yet another great stocking filler.
