Publisher's Summary

One of Australia’s favourite and most multitalented entertainers provides hilarious and honest life advice in this candid collection of cautionary tales. 

Kitty Flanagan has been locked in an industrial freezer in Western Australia and insulted about the size of her lady parts in Singapore and borne witness to the world’s most successful wife swap in suburban Sydney. It’s these valuable lessons from The University of Life that have taught her so many things, including the fact that cliches like ‘The University of Life’ are reeeally annoying. 

In these funny, true stories, Kitty provides advice you didn’t even know you needed. Useful tips on how not to get murdered while hitchhiking, how to break up with someone the wrong way and the right way, why it’s important to keep your top on while waitressing and why women between the ages of 37 and 42 should be banned from Internet dating. 

Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies is a collection of laugh-out-loud, cautionary tales from one of Australia’s favourite comedians.

Funny AF!😂

Laughed almost the entire way through, had to skip back so many times as I was missing parts from laughing to hard. Fantastic read!

not great

I listen to this after her new book 488 rules for life, and turned out the jokes are all repeated and are the same :/

Hilarious and highly recommended.

Loved this. So funny with Kitty Flanagan herself reading. Listened to it while doing my excruciatingly dull physio stretches and made them much easier to do.

Pure entertainment

Brilliantly en pointe. Clever and relatable in so many ways. Kitty has a unique and endearing style which is impossible not to love. Go girl!

Equally as funny as 488 rules

Loved this book. Kitty's ability to tell a story is amazing. The best story was her 'saving the school choir'. Please write another one Kitty!

Terrible Audio

I was very keen to listen to this, but the audio quality is so bad i could get through the first chapter. The content seems good though, just a shame that it isnt supported by a proper recording.

Fabulous Comedy genius from Kitty

This is one of my go to listens in the last 6 months when I am having a hard day because within 10 minutes I am laughing and feeling better about the world. Kitty is an Australian legend of comedy and this novel is friggin hilarious. My friend and I at work continually quote bits of the narrative to each other much to our colleagues annoyance and we couldn’t give a hoot. Enjoy - it’s bloody brilliance.

Funny and cleverly written.

Kitty is the funniest person on HYBPA (which is a massive compliment because they are all excellent) Her humour translates very well into an audiobook and I highly recommend. Will be searching for more Kitty titles as this one left me wanting more.
