A Sunday Times Number One Bestseller
Miranda Hart will carry you along with the sheer force of her charm, bumbling cheer and charisma. - Sunday Express
Well hello to you dear browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence?
Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures - surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me?
I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you too dear reader) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.
Because frankly where is the manual? The much needed manual to life. Well, fret not, for this is my attempt at one and let's call it, because it's fun, a Miran-ual. I thank you.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have watched her tv show Miranda over and over, it's that good, and I was pleasantly surprised that her book read almost like an episode of the show. Miranda is self-depricating in a hilarious way, and I love the conversations between her and her 18 year old self. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of hers and to anyone who loves to laugh. She is the type of person I would love to meet and be friends with and do silly things with. She is always a joy, whether it be in her writing or her tv show.
Miranda is a hilarious and talented woman. I am glad I’ve seen her work before I read this, because I can picture how she says things whilst I read which made it even better. A funny lady I would hope to meet one day!
This book was amazing. I'm a huge fan of Miranda Hart and this book only endeared her to me more. Her dialogue with her 18 year old self is hilarious and he dialogue with the reader is encouraging and uplifting--it really isn't just Miranda! The last chapter on Dreams was a perfect ending to such great autobiography.
She wriggles under her, sticking out her tongue "Nooo"
