Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom postdivorce.

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 30s, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog or worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is your audiobook. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, this is your audiobook. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, this is your audiobook.

Was never going to disappoint!!!

A honest a humourous account of how Sarah came to be (Choice words included) one of the UK's best comedians. Funny throughout.

5 Champion Stars

One of the most enchanting women reads one of the sweetest autobiographies.

Sarah welcomes you into her life through food, jokes, honest storytelling, animals and a little self help advice.

We often see Comedians put out interesting and funny books. This is the one that you need to actually pick up and take home.

The audio narration, editing and production was top notch. Highly recommend.

Im a 20 year old man.

Given my age and sex, I doubt I'm Sarah's target audience but this book is fantastic! Every chapter had me laughing. She has a great talent for mixing together funny anecdotes with great advice and serious solutions to serious problems. Couldn't stop listening!

A brilliant listen .
Sarah’s unique views on life made for an excellent book. She is funny and down to earth, risqué in places and totally honest in her observations.
I really enjoyed listening to this audible book

Feel as if I’ve made a good friend

I loved this book and was sorry when I got to the end. She made me laugh out loud. Her warmth and her empathy for the underdog shines through.

Champion Read

Excellent if you need something to cheer you up and you haven’t got the concentration for something more serious. I particularly liked the end of chapter advice, which summarised what she had written in the chapter. If you’re not keen on rude words every so often then this book might not be for you though, personally I found it added to the humour. Well done Ms Millican for making me feel good about wearing my old, comfy coat even though it’s not in fashion.

Fun and insightful

This book is fun, insightful and perfectly balanced. I really enjoyed listening to Sarah's story. Then I went home and had some tea (and a banana cake.... it was delicious).

Brilliant and funny memoir

Millican has a wonderful way of telling a story with good humour and sincerity. This is the kind of memoir you listen to when you need a laugh and that general warm fuzzy good feeling.

Even if you aren’t familiar with her comedy you will find much to enjoy here.

Relatable, funny, and honest.

Sarah Millican has written a book that feels so honest and open. I felt like I could relate to her experiences as woman, to being a quiet and shy child, loving stationary, and the scramble for confidence. Loved this book.

Brilliantly Millican

This couldnt be more Millican, trying to smother the giggles as I worked was a real challenge listening to this book.
