Born Lippy AudioBook Summary
When Jo Brand hosted Have I Got News For You late last year, her calm explanation of the effects of sexism on women to a bemused all-male cast turned into a viral phenomenon.
There has been a whole tradition of books over hundreds of years where a father shares his wisdom with his son – started by Lord Chesterfield in the 18th century – while women have been silent (aka bullied into thinking their advice wasn’t worth writing down). This book puts a stop to all that.
Ranging from your family and how to survive it to what no one tells you about the female body; from how not to fall in love to heckling as a life skill, Born Lippygathers together the things Jo’s learnt about the world, the things she wishes she’d known and the things she hopes for the future into a hilarious and highly useful guide to life that everyone female (and male) needs to hear immediately.
Packed with memorable anecdotes from her life and career, coloured by her experiences as a psychiatric nurse and working mother of two, this book will not only entertain but also really help people.
