Publisher's Summary

A rousing, funny, straight-talking, inspirational and generally awesome book from social entrepreneur Lucy Bloom, part memoir, part life lessons, which urges us all to find our courage, take joy in life, and celebrate our extraordinary ordinariness....

Stirring, straight-talking, incredibly inspiring, funny, and full-on - Lucy Bloom is one of a kind, and so is her memoir.

Lucy's openhearted interest in the world has taken her from jillarooing on a cattle farm to maternity hospitals in Ethiopia, from marshaling a cross-country carnival in northern Uganda to CEO briefings in the back of a tuk-tuk in Cambodia. Hers has been a life of fighting for the underdog only to find out that, sometimes, the underdog is actually her. Taking all dramatic life turns, sidesteps, and face plants in her stride, Lucy has rebuilt her life every time, with love and adventure at its heart, plus a side order of mischief. 

Rollicking, rude, brimful with joy, and written with a take-no-prisoners, bare-all honesty, this book is a call to arms - a book to make you laugh out loud, nod your head in recognition, recharge your life, and let loose. 

"My deepest wish is that reading this book makes you want to do cool stuff, make plans, launch that business, pack your bags, shave your head, ride that horse, date that hottie, apply for that job, chuck that party - and, most of all, get your girls out, whatever that means for you."

"This memoir is so full of life and its ups and downs, you will start reading it again as soon as you finish. We are all richer for knowing Lucy." (Wendy Whiteley OAM)

"Lucy tells powerful stories of human tenacity and love; she inspires all with her insight into the human spirit." (Bernard Salt AM)

Validated and inspired

As a fellow shiny-squirrel-chaser, I feel both validated and inspired after *reading* (cough) this book.

The fact that the author read this herself brought so much heart and humour to her story, which I enjoyed from start to finish.

I had started to worry that I should become a grown-up and take life more seriously, so this book came along at the perfect time. I have given myself permission to relax and live life to the full. Thanks Lucy! (PS we should seriously be best friends)

Courageous Inspiring Hilarious. A must listen!

Wow. what an incredible Woman. fierce and raw.
I saw one of my friends on fb post about this book on her feed and had to get my hands on it.

Every chapter had me hanging off every word.
Lucy narrating her own book is the very best part.

Courageous Inspiring Hilarious Honest.

You'll laugh cry and gasp.

What a life well lived and you're only half way there.

Thank you for all of the work you have done and continue to do, Lucy Bloom.

Awesome book

It takes a cracking author to write an exposé like this on themselves. What courage! Even better is the way she takes lessons from all sorts of experiences, and shares them with us.
The stories are entertaining, the narration is personable, and the emotion is palpable.
