Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty, and wonky best friend I wish I had. She’s the feminist rock star we need right now; How to Be a Woman is a hilarious delight.” Ayelet Waldman, New York Times bestselling author of Bad Mother
“So joyful, so free of the piety that has felled many a worthier title and—this is its real value—so liable to find readers who in a million years wouldn’t identify with Susan Faludi, that it feels like a rare case of winning the argument…How to Be a Woman is a glorious, timely stand against sexism so ingrained we barely even notice it. It is, in the dour language she militates so brilliantly against, a book that needed to be written.” New York Times
“Ingeniously funny…In her brilliant, original voice, Moran successfully entertains and enlightens her audience with hard-won wisdom and wit.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The hilarious Caitlin Moran offers plenty of insight into her life and times in this book aimed at enlightening women (and any brave men)…Moran narrates in an off-the-cuff tone that is at once down-to-earth and inviting. Her performance in reminiscent of and old friend offering solid advice without ever being preachy or didactic. Moran’s stories are entertaining, and her narration demonstrates an inherent skill at performance.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“A spirited memoir/manifesto…with equal amounts snarky brio and righteous anger…That such an important topic is couched in ribald humor makes reading about Moran’s journey hilarious as well as provocative…Rapturously irreverent, this book should kick-start plenty of useful discussions.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“With her drunk-on-gin-with-my-lady-friends honesty and humor, Moran, a Times of London columnist, snips the man out of manifesto, spinning her message of radically sensible female empowerment.” Vanity Fair

Best Book I have read/listened to all year!!

I loved the author reading her own words! It doesn't always work out so well in some audiobooks but Caitlin Moran does a splendid job!

While this book may not be for everyone, I absolutely LOVED every line! The author speaks the absolute truth of being a 30-something woman in our modern age while being uplifting, intelligent, honest, and hilarious. I have always considered myself a feminist but I know many people my age shrink in horror at that term, associating with angry, men-hating, fist pounding women. In truth, as she lays it out so eloquently, it is nothing more than the desire to be seen as human--equal to men--and should not take away all the glory of femininity or the comedy of the human experience. If I had a teenage daughter I would give this to her as my own mother gave me Friedan's The Feminine Mystique and I recommend it to women everywhere!
