About the Author
Joanna is a journalist, broadcaster and mother of three daughters. She has worked as a broadcast journalist for twenty years. She is a well-known face on BBC Television News, as the main evening anchor on the BBC's News Channel and occasional presenter on BBC1. This is Joanna's first book. She wrote it after deciding she'd spent too long feeling like her head was full and it was time to get a strategy for coping with a busy life to allow her time to indulge in her passion for creativity and making. Her mantra is 'Minimum effort, maximum return.'

Joanna Gosling is a rising star of breakfast television. She has an equally successful husband, a gorgeous house in a very swanky part of London, and three highly decorative children. (I know all this because they feature liberally in the glossy magazine interviews Gosling has given to publicise this book).
Instead of sitting back and appreciating this rather embarrassing excess of good fortune, Gosling has decided to tempt the big left hook of fate by showing off her wonderful lifestyle in this very nicely designed but otherwise utterly pointless book.
Ostensibly, 'Wonderwoman' is a book of handy hints. These are haphazardly organised, poorly written, and universally culled from the pages of Google and Mumsnet; if you think they are worth the £17.99 cover price, you are clearly too daft to be left alone in the house, never mind be expected to run it.
Here are some of Joanna's gems:
* Forget sewing in nametapes, use a fabric pen!
* Radiators dusty? Buy a radiator brush!
* Want to protect your sofa? Cover it with a blanket!
* Got stainless steel appliances? Use baby oil to polish them!
Alongside these new frontiers in the bleeding obvious, Gosling has included the obligatory craft projects.Read more ›
It is a lovely book to handle and I have already earmarked young and old who will be receiving this for Christmas.
