Online sensation, fearless feminist heroine and scourge of trolls and misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford is a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands of Australian women and girls. Her incendiary debut, Fight Like a Girl, is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon to be and exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women.

I won't lie, when this book was suggested to me by my wife I cringed a bit inside. 'I'll just get through it and then I can say I listened and go back to something good' I thought to myself. To say that I was surprised by the book is an understatement. Clementine has poured herself and her not misplaced anger into this book but still managed to keep it funny and not ranting. I'm pretty much in the sweet spot of the privileged white male and, as I suspect is true of many in my situation, I had never seriously thought about the equality of society and had certainly never looked at it through this lens. What was both remarkable and shocking to me was that I have started to see examples of many of the traits and behaviours talked about in this book in day to day life. It has really made me think and think hard about something I would previously have largely dismissed as it wasn't obviously present to me in my day to day life (although I was also wrong about that). Clementine's narration is excellent, passionate, irreverent, funny and not ranty. I am hugely pleased that I listened to this as it has made me really question what I had previously taken for granted. By the end of the book I found myself not, as I had assumed at the start, feeling a sense of relief and diving back into my normal material but rather looking for the audible version of her new book. This is a good book and I would strongly urge other men to listen to it.

Meet Don. Don is a genetics professor who just might be somewhere on the autistic spectrum. He looks a little like Gregory Peck and is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. And it’s definitely not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not .Rosie, meanwhile, isn’t looking for love; she’s looking for her biological father. Sometimes, though, you don’t find love: love finds you...

This is an amazing book. the narration is superb and the story is ... we'll you can see from the review. I normally read space opera or fantasy and this was a wonderful break, funny, incredibly well written and heartwarming without being mushy. This book goes straight into my top 10.
