Read an exclusive extract from How to Be Champion

Sarah Millican's autobiography will make you laugh, feel normal and probably sniff your leggings...

Part autobiography, part self help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut book delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom post divorce.

If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your thirties, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, then this is your book.

It you've ever cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is your book.

If you haven't done those things but wish you had, this is your book.

If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, this is your book.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The naughtiest, helpiest, laughieoutloudiest and goodest book I've ever done reading on. Give that girl a banana!' - Dawn French

'Of course Sarah Millican's writing will make you laugh out loud, but there are moments where she will touch you deeply. The dirty bitch.' - Kathy Burke

'A properly funny autobiography had a one-night stand with a genuinely inspirational self-help book and this is their lovable mongrel offspring.' - Frank Skinner

'Do not read this while eating tomato soup. You are guaranteed to laugh and stain something.' - Sandi Toksvig

'Funny and honest. Sometimes too honest. Like your nan when she's drunk at Christmas.' - Ricky Gervais

'This is everything you want Sarah's first book to be. Outrageously funny, painfully honest and deliciously filthy.' - Phillip Schofield

'What a fantastic comedy victory for the peerless Madam Millican... Blows much of the erudite, smug old bollocks in bookshops out of the water.' - Jo Brand
'Like Sarah - funny, wise and authentic. Read it!' Miranda Hart
'Just like her stand-up: nothing is off limits, honest, candid, but most of all laugh-out-loud funny.' Alan Carr
'If you like Sarah, read this book and you will love her. If you already love her, you will love her even more.' Michael McIntyre
'Witty, wise, forthright and very funny. Terrific!' Graham Norton
'A wonderful read... Sarah Millican is a national treasure.' Matt Lucas
'Just as wise and funny and honest as [Sarah] is. Loved it.' Jojo Moyes
One of our favourite stand-ups looks at her own life to show that life doesn't have to be perfect and you don't have to be amazing all the time. Packed with laugh-out-loud stories and advice, this will delight her many fans -- Fanny Blake * WOMAN & HOME *
The one-liners come thick and fast in comedian Sarah Millican's memoir HOW TO BE CHAMPION, and when bad things happen - bullying or divorce - the jokes become funnier and more real. You'll be laughing a lot, crying a bit and cheering for her, too * GOOD HOUSEKEEPING *
I do not recommend you read this book in public, unless you like snorting and crying with laughter in front of strangers. This is a book in which the writer's warmth shines through and the advice really is responsible and helpful. Do read it, you will learn something; even if it is just how to bake a cake -- Kate Stone * FUNNY WOMEN *
Written with the sort of warmth and sincerity that hallmarks her stand-up. Her book is, in short, champion * CHORTLE *
Funny, feisty and just a little bit filthy, the fast-talking Geordie is one of Britain's best-loved comedians. Her book, a combination of memoir and self-help book, will make you laugh out loud * BEST *
Down-to-earth superstar Millican tells her own story here of how she turned to stand-up after the break-up of her first marriage and conquered the male-dominated comedy world. Honest, touching and, like Millican's stand-up shows, endearingly smutty * EVENING STANDARD
