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
