Waterstones Says

Through personal anecdote and the testimony of others, Barnett asks why the issue of periods still embarrasses and appalls and makes a bracing, common sense case for full and frank honesty.

Revised and updated with a new chapter

In this frank, funny rallying cry, Emma Barnett shares her story, as well as those of others, to ask why we've clammed up about menstruation. She'll make you laugh, weep, and maybe squirm, about the natural process that nobody talks about, and smash this taboo once and for all.

Because it's about bloody time.
