Review

"A hilarious collection" Mashable "Will certainly help you, should you perhaps decide to indulge in a spot of "self-gifting" in this instance, survive Christmas with your more crazed relatives" -- Rachel Cooke Observer "Fantastic, hilarious, emotional" Mayaland "You may have to push this book away for fear you'll hurt yourself laughing, but its wisdom and humanity - no hyperbole here - are too magnetic to keep at bay for long" -- Mary Pols People Magazine "Honest, poignant and ridiculously silly in all the best ways and I'm better for having read it. Plus, doggies!" Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess
