Publisher's Summary

The hilarious memoir from award-winning comedian Bridget Christie.
When Bridget Christie walked into her local bookshop, she thought she'd come out with a book (hopefully like you've just done). And maybe a calendar of cute photos of cats (hopefully unlike you've just done). The last thing she thought she'd be leaving with was the need for a new wave of feminism and the start of an incredibly successful career.
Up until that day, she hadn't realised that misogyny was like shiny leggings: it had been making an unexpected comeback (and for the record, neither do ordinary women any favours).
From that moment, Bridget decided that the world should know that feminism is not embarrassing for women. In fact, she managed to find the humour in it. And she wasn't afraid to answer the difficult questions all women wanted to know: why do fish stare at you during lap dances at Stringfellows? Do I need to have botox before heading to a pub quiz? Is bootylicious a new brand of feminism or an arse-flavoured bubble gum?
A Book for Her is Bridget's story. But it's not only a book for her, it's also a book for you. And for him, if he's not a dick. Or even if he is, he could learn something that might make him not a dick.
Oh and what happened in that bookshop? You'll have to listen on to find out....

Brilliant!

Smart, funny, and painfully true. I'm so sorry it's over. I hope there's another book from Bridget Christie in the not-so-distant future.

My new favourite Comedian!!!

What made the experience of listening to A Book for Her the most enjoyable?

Bridget Christie is a breath of fresh air to me. She is bitingly intelligent and funny, and I felt finally that I've found a female comedian that I can relate to. Infinitely more interesting and witty than Amy Schumer and the like. I can't wait for more of Bridget's work to become available.

Not just for the ladies

Hilarious, thoughtful and moving. Christie's well honed performance style makes this my favourite recent listen.

Says what needs saying and all funny like....

Two weeks ago my best friend's husband...whom I adore...got out his phone and showed a video of a topless woman dancing to Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines. We were a group of girls at a party. He was then angry when I said, quite calmly, that I didn't want to see it.

He said I was jealous of the woman's body.

This made me angrier than I have been in a very, very long time. I hope I don't have to explain why here.

I will be buying a hardback copy of Bridget Christie's masterwork in finding the funny in the blanket suppression of we, the majority, by willy owners and sometimes, even ourselves. I think it is the spoonful of sugar needed to help that
medicine go down.

My best friend had a little girl a few months ago...I'm buying the book for her sake.

Thanks Bridget, you are a legend.

Became tedious to listen to

only managed to get through the first couple of hours, even with the comedy vein running throughout.
