Review quote

"Olivia Fane gives us 66 things to talk about in 66 terrific little essays" -- William Leith Evening Standard "Superbly ingenious - this book will make you think and argue" -- Oliver James, author of Affluenza and Office Politics "Full of wisdom about how to live, what is means to be you and how to communicate that knowledge to the people you love" -- Andrew G. Marshall, author of I Love You But I'm Not In Love With You "They fulfil their brief perfectly: as aide-memoires to better human interaction. The charisma of her writing will certainly win her allies, but Fane doesn't try to impose her belief system on her readers. You will read the book in a single sitting and dip back into it for years to come" www.welovethisbook.comshow more
