Jo Brand - Born Lippy: How To Do Female

Jo Brand - Born Lippy: How To Do Female

When Jo Brand hosted Have I Got News For You late in 2017, her calm explanation of the effects of sexism on women to the male panellists became into a viral phenomenon.

There has been a long tradition of books over hundreds of years where a father shares his wisdom with his son - started by Lord Chesterfield in the 18th Century; while women have been silent (a.k.a. bullied into thinking their advice wasn't worth writing down). This book puts a stop to all that.

Ranging from your family and how to survive it, to what no one tells you about the female body; from how not to fall in love, to heckling as a life-skill, Born Lippy gathers together the things Jo's learnt about the world, the things she wishes she'd known and the things she hopes for the future into a hilarious and highly useful guide to life that everyone female (and male) needs to read immediately.

Packed with memorable anecdotes from her life and career, coloured by her experiences as a psychiatric nurse and working mother of two, this book will not only entertain but also really help people.
