While the information in this books seems accessible, interesting and helpful, the performance by the reader was completely off putting for me. I felt as though it was an intro to the next big blockbuster film and the tone made it really difficult for me to absorb the content. I will buy the book instead.

When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out.

Loved every minute of this beautiful book on the nourishment and wonder of true friendship between women and the quest to find it in a partner! Didn’t want it to end!
