Disappointing

I’ve never heard of ‘Shameless’ so I had no preconceptions as to the content. This is a book for women. Men might get something out of it, but the description should have made it clear before I committed money to it. I got a bit out of hearing the woman’s perspective on a variety of subjects, but it mostly left me dismayed. The book lost me completely when it said (and I quote) “in fact, while I’m at it, men don’t deserve us (women) at all”, which is sexist beyond belief and reduces the credibility of this body of work. Probably the worst audible I’ve bought, which is saying something since “The Flat Earth Conspiracy” is also in my library.

Exceptional.

What a beautiful, thoughtful, clever book full of sage advice and nuance and what a treat it was to listen to it in the voices of those who bought it to life.

I didn't want it to end

The way these stories are crafted together in this book and told by the writers is incredibly impactful. They beautifully capture real-life conundrums, leaving me wanting more thanks to the valuable wisdom and relatable experiences.

Finished in a day 🩷

I couldn’t get a enough! Such a beautifully diverse, compassionate, empowering and well written collection of advice and stories.

I laughed, cried and felt seen in so many of these pieces. And loved every word.
