Publisher's Summary

Take a funny and illuminating tour of the female body with award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe.
Women have so much going on, what with boobs and jealousy and menstruating and broodiness and sex and infidelity and pubes and wombs and jobs and memories and emotions and the past and the future and themselves and each other.
Here's a book that deals with all of it. Sara Pascoe has joked about femininity and sexuality on stage and screen, but now she has a book to talk about it all for a bit longer. Animal combines autobiography and evolutionary history to create a funny, fascinating insight into the forces that mould and affect modern women.
Read for you by the author, Animal is entertaining and informative, personal and universal - silly about lots of things and serious about some. It's a laugh-out-loud investigation to help us understand and forgive our animal urges and insecurities.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

an excellent read-listen

you 'd think that being 35 and a woman you know most of what relates to women's body or behaviour... think again! Once I started listening I couldn't stop. The book is enjoyable and extra bonus you get to learn a few things about your body and why you behave the way you behave or feel the way you feel. Especially towards the end I had to stoo a few times to think things through and find where I stand on some points. Totally recomend it.

Entertaining and conversation starting

I love this audiobook. The author tackles tough subjects with clarity, sensitivity and humour. She balances facts, opinions and personal anecdotes to explore the history and biology of women. I would recommend this book to everyone - Young and old, male and female!

A fascinating dopamine-release

The book I wanted to write. Sara has researched topics that are fundamental to the human race and conveyed it in a comical and no-nonsense way.

Intelligence + humour = Sara Pascoe

It's like indulgently falling in to the pages of a secret diary, interspersed with an interesting text book.

Keep on exploring the world and talking about these important topics, mating, periods and all! ☺️
