Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“My favorite thing about Alyssa’s books is knowing someone as normal as the rest of us can work in the most prestigious positions in the world and do it with a sense of humor and self-deprecation.” Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Reading So Here’s the Thing…is exactly like hanging out with Alyssa. You will laugh a lot, learn even more, and just be grateful that she is your friend.” Dan Pfeiffer, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A self-described ‘goofball’ cheerfully reflects on life…[with] a merry gloss on politics…The brief conversations are as frothy as the essays….[and] most pieces are funny and many, insightful…An entertaining miscellany by a sharp-eyed observer.” Kirkus Reviews
“Growing up is hard. Trusting your gut? Sheesh. That sounds impossible at times. Let Alyssa Mastromonaco hold your hand and show you that with some good laughs and a lot of heart, life can be a little less daunting. I wish I’d read this book when I was younger, but it still resonates today, and I know it will be relevant at all stages of life. What a gift.” Aminatou Sow, co-founder of Tech LadyMafia
