'HILARIOUS' Daily Telegraph
'Brilliant' Frankie Boyle

Sometimes Sara Pascoe confuses herself. She gets wildly and pointlessly jealous. She spends too much time hating her bum. And you know what she hates more than her bum? Her preoccupation with her bum. She's had sexual experiences with boys she wasn't really into, but still got a post-coital crush on them. She's ruined brand-new relationships by immediately imagining them going into reverse.

There was so much about her behaviour that Pascoe wanted to understand. So she started researching what makes us - women - tick. And what she read made her eyes fall out of her face. Reader, here is everything science has to tell us about love, sexuality, infidelity, boobs, periods, pubes, broodiness, and clever old fat. Merry Christmas and Hallelujah! Suddenly being a woman doesn't look like such a minefield after all.

Unexpected but brilliant

I purchased this book purely because I enjoy Sarah's work as a comic and as a positive female figure, I didn't read the blurb, I presumed it to be an autobiography.

I was therefore surprised to find that although it had autobiographical traits, it is more so the biography of a female body (Yes I know it states this on the front cover!)

The book covers many topics from attraction to procreation and it's written with wit and fact.

I enjoyed how this book made me consider things in ways I hadn't previously and how it taught me new things. I found myself pausing the book on a number of occasions to further research something Sarah wrote about which I guess was part of the books intention.

A throughly enjoyable read.
