A friend recommended this book to me and I found myself nodding my head saying 'that's so true' (in between bursts of laughter) at every section. Reminiscent of Jen LiMarzi's Fingers Crossed, Legs Uncrossed, it says everything we are or should be thinking but don't have the time to say! Great read.
