Caitlin Moran is my new favorite person in the world!
She narrates the story well and is very fun to listen to.
It does have it's serious moments especially the chapter on abortion. Some listeners will be bothered by her views on abortion, childbirth and mothering, but I appreciate that she does not pull any punches and states exactly how she feels. Caitlin makes it clear that being a mother, is not a prerequisite for being a successful woman.
These subjects are only a fraction of the book; she covers many other things, like: how to dress like a woman, how to shave like a woman, how to name your breasts, how to recognize sexism, how to be in love, how to get married and how to choose role models.
It is really not so much a "how to" book but more "how not to". If it's a "how to" anything, it's how to be comfortable with who you already are and stop trying to be an impossible, ridiculous version of what society thinks you should be.
I think it is a "must listen" for all women, especially young women.
If, like me, you already think like Caitlin, you may not gain a new view of the world but you will gain additional insight, and you will be thoroughly entertained!
