'Ms. Pearson writes with great wit and verve' Wall Street Journal
'Pearson features menopause as nearly its own character in this laugh-out-loud yet all too realistic romp through midlife concerns about aging, sexual appeal, careers for older employees, and family care issues. Spot on' Library Journal, Starred Review
'Brilliantly well observed' INDIA KNIGHT
'Written with a light touch and verve ... Pearson makes a sharp point about the lack of value and status that society places on the onerous job of a stay at home mother ... in these pages, there is a raw honesty' Financial Times
'Sparkling, funny and poignant, this is a triumphant return for Pearson and hopefully not the last we will hear of Kate' Daily Express
'It is this relatable quality of Pearson's story, along with laugh-out-loud zingers on nearly every page, that makes this sequel shine. How Hard Can It Be? is witty, current and a good reminder that age can be a trump card, even if you need reading glasses to see the deck' Washington Post
'Few sequels beat the original, but How Hard Can It Be? does so hands down ... zesty, razor-sharp and hilarious. It's full of such quotable casual profundity on the female condition I couldn't read it without a pencil to underline the abundance of great lines. Get ready for Kate!' TINA BROWN, magazine editor and bestselling author
'Funny, heart-breaking, wise and delightful' SOPHIE HANNAH
