Publisher's Summary

In this deeply personal collection of essays, creator of the The Conversation Amanda de Cadenet shares the hard-won advice and practical insights she's gained through her experiences as a businesswoman, friend, wife, and mother.

Amanda is on a mission to facilitate conversations that allow all women to be seen, heard, and understood. Through her multimedia platform The Conversation, she interviews some of today's most badass women - from Hillary Clinton to Lady Gaga - in no-holds-barred conversations that get to the heart of what means to be female. Now, in It's Messy, Amanda offers listeners an extension of that conversation, inviting them into her life and sharing her own story.

From childhood fame to a high-profile marriage (and divorce) to teen motherhood to the sexism that threatened to end her career before it started, Amanda shares the good, the bad, and the messy of her life, synthesizing lessons she's learned along the way. Through it all, she offers an original perspective as a feminist on the front lines of celebrity culture. Edgy, irreverent, poignant, and provocative, It's Messy addresses the issues, concerns, and experiences relevant to women today.

Refreshing

Loved it! It's the kinda book that you keep and share with your bff or even your daughter when the time is right. But one thing is for sure. I will be buying a hard cover copy for my collection. Her way with words and sharing with us her life experiences, which in reality is pretty much a lot shit we all can definitely relate to, was just what I needed to hear. All I can say to anyone reading this is; Read it! You'll be able to relate to 1 or 2 things, or maybe 75% of it... Love, love, love, loved it!

thankful

Dear Amanda,

You are a true role model and a badass woman.

I have few words to describe the feeling I got many times during this audiobook, but I want to say thank you.
For being brave, for being authentic and for writing( and reading) this.
I feel empowered.


yours,

Sara

p.s. I heard it in one go.

Absolutely loved!

This book was a total delight to listen to and came at just the right time for me as a brand new mother. It made me both laugh out loud and tear up on several occasions. It also inspired me to do more. Amanda is a wonderful storyteller.

Such insightful, important words for women living in this generation. Thank you for your vulnerability Amanda.

The Most Important Book of the Year

A brave, honest, funny and smart book very woman needs to read. Finally, straight talk from someone who's lived it and not afraid to tell the tale.
