How to Laugh Very Hard About Being a Woman

How to Be a WomanHow to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this both entertaining and thought-provoking, which is a pretty great combination. I knock off a star only because a few of the Britishisms were over my head, so I think a little more effort could have been undertaken to translate or explain certain things for the American market.

But on the whole, Caitlin Moran is fierce, funny, unafraid to make fun of herself, but also eager to pass along actual life lessons by doing so. The best part is, those life lessons don't sound preachy or cliché or dull; they ring with common sense and reasonableness.
