Waterstones Says

Packed with real-life stories and interviews with dozens of iconic black women, this is an essential volume designed to inspire a generation of women of colour to succeed in everything, from work to internet dating.

'Arguably the book for 2018' - Arifa Akbar, The Observer

The long-awaited, inspirational guide to life for a generation of black British women inspired to make lemonade out of lemons, and find success in every area of their lives.

Black women today are well past making waves - we're currently creating something of a tsunami. Women who look like us, grew up in similar places to us, talk like us, are shaping almost every sector of society.

From education to work to dating, this inspirational, honest and provocative book recognises and celebrates the strides black women have already made, while providing practical advice for those who want to do the same and forge a better, visible future.

Illustrated with stories from best friends Elizabeth Uviebinene and Yomi Adegoke's own lives, and using interviews with dozens of the most successful black women in Britain - including BAFTA Award-winning director Amma Asante, British Vogue publisher Vanessa Kingori and Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis - Slay In Your Lane is essential reading for a generation of black women inspired to find success in every area of their lives.

'A prime example of how straightforward it should be to provide representation for young black girls' - Vice

'An inspirational guide to life for the modern British black woman' - Elle

'Outspoken new role models for the next generation of black women ... I imagine its intended audience will devour it whole. But it deserves to be widely read as a middle-aged white woman, it made me realise I know more about Danish people from watching box sets than the inner lives of black people who share my city' - Janice Turner, The Times

'An inspiring read' - Pheobe Hurst, The Pool

'In Slay In Your Lane, Adegoke and Uviebinene have created a valuable framework to help navigate the murky world of working - and existing - while black and female. It puts into words the amorphous, intangible feelings we walk around with and counters them with inspirational stories from industry leaders' - Natasha Onwuemezi, The Bookseller

'We could not put it down after reading the first page... a true insight into being a black woman in today's Britain' - Black Beauty Magazine
