Publisher's Summary

A brand-new collection of Caitlin's award-winning Times columns plus three major new pieces exclusive to this book - one of which is Caitlin's Moranifesto for a better world. As with Moranthology, Caitlin introduces every piece and weaves her writing together into a brilliant, seamless book. And, similarly to her last collection, Moranifesto is a characteristically fun and witty look at the news, celebrity culture and society.

But it is also - as we all are these days - much more socially engaged, with strong and important pieces on poverty, the media and class. And, of course, she is never afraid to address the big issues, such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats. Who else but Caitlin Moran - a true Renaissance woman - could deal with topics as pressing and diverse as gaying up the Olympics, affordable housing, 1980s swearing, boarding schools and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler?

From austerity and Hillary Clinton to cystitis and Ant & Dec, Caitlin's manifesto is an engaging and mischievous rallying call for our times.

Great indoctrination for old fans and new

It took me an age to finish this, but actually I really enjoyed Caitlin's latest musings on life and love, if not the universe. I should qualify that since I don't read her newspaper columns, this was all new material for me, and so Moranisfesto had a freshness and originality that would be lacking if you have read most of these pieces previously. I'm a huge fan of Caitlin's generally - her humour and politics and the wicked blend thereof - and would personally nominate her for prime minister if I were British. This is an excellent indoctrination in Moran-ism. The only aspect of the book I can't say I appreciated is her commentary on television - of no interest or relevance to someone not acquainted with pretty much anything on TV and British TV in particular. Still, if you're in my boat, skip those bits and savour the rest with your shoes kicked off and a lovely glass of chardonnay.

absolutely divine

I'm rereading it as soon as I've finished, right now! I never wanted this book to end.
the most thought provoking, funny, wise and skillful writer I have come across in years.
the reader is really good too! I was worried that after listening to How To Be A Woman read by Caitlin Moran herself, I'd be ruined for anyone else reading her work. however this reader conveyed her essence really well.
all in all, I'm grateful to be alive in the same century as this author.

I want to immerse myself in Moran's brilliant bubble!

The only criticism I have is that Moran didn't read this herself! The book is excellent, intelligent and intuitive. Her Moranifesto proposes genuinely excellent ideas for how we can improve this country as well as ourselves as individuals. I recommend this book to everyone - man, woman, child, Eskimo, Korean, Swedish, French, Iranian, et al!

Brilliant.

I loved every minute of this book. Caitlins observations of life and politics through a working class, gritty and feminist attitude made me both thoughtful then howl with laughter. Thank you for the ride

Adored this book

I loved this book, made me add everything else by Caitlin Moran to my wish list, this book is funny, even when discussing serious and sometimes terribly sad topics. I just LOVED it and want to hang out with the author in a pub and put the world to rights over a few large gins xxxx

Brilliant and Funny as always

Another belter from Moran, takes you through a range of emotions with some really thought provoking ideas. Laugh out loud funny in parts and brilliantly written.

Compelling, but a bit sunday supplement at times

The energy and verve is nearly always compelling in Moran's writing, and at its best when she is filled with righteous anger mixed with passion to build a better world. Sometimes this anthology veers towards gossipy colour supplement filler, but rarely for long. Worth persevering with if those bits put you off as thete are lots of gems to be found.

I love you Caitlin Moran

Would you consider the audio edition of Moranifesto to be better than the print version?

This book is brilliant.
She writes in a beautiful eloquent way that just makes so much sense.
Thank you

Brilliant follow up to Monranthology

This review is biased because I love Caitlin Moran. I love her writing and her "voice" (and even though I love her actual speaking voice, it wasn't on here - never mind! Joanna Neary did a great job!) The articles are clever and thought provoking, and come from a place at great humour. I found myself thinking "yes! That's how I feel about the EU" or "I never realised that happened in 2013" - it really opened my eyes. Highly recommend!

a breath of fresh air on so many subjects

a really empowering and refreshing book that covers a wide breadth of topics and essentially teaches you to stop listening to the posh old white men who tell you that you aren't smart enough to understand, at its core the world and life are fairly simple and people only exclude us from things they want to feel superior about.
