A frank, funny personal essay collection about work, failure, feminism, and the messy business of being alive in your twenties and thirties. As she shares her hard-won insights from screwing up, growing up, and trying to find her own path, Anne T. Donahue's debut book offers all the honesty, laughs, and reassurance of a late-night phone call with your best friend. Whether she's giving a signature pep talk, railing against summer, or describing her own mental health struggles, Anne reminds us that failure is normal, saying no to things is liberating, and that we're all a bunch of beautiful disasters -- and she wouldn't have it any other way.

I think Anne T. Donahue may be my spirit animal. Not a genre I would typically read, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Pure, relatable, humourous honesty.

I didn't enjoy her style of writing. There were too many f words for my liking and her general content was not appealing to me. I didn't get any big messages from reading this except for, "don't give a f," and that's not a great self-help concept.
