'Sarah Millican is never less than belly-laugh hilarious' Mirror'An iron fist in a marigold glove' Guardian'Wonderfully wrong... incredibly funny' MetroPart autobiography, part self help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut book How To Be Champion delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom post divorce. If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your thirties, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is YOUR BOOK. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, THIS IS YOUR BOOK.
'Just like her stand-up: nothing is off limits, honest, candid, but most of all laugh-out-loud funny.' Alan Carr 'Like Sarah - funny, wise and authentic. Read it!' Miranda Hart 'What a fantastic comedy victory for the peerless Madam Millican... Blows much of the erudite, smug, old bollocks in bookshops out of the water.' Jo Brand 'This is everything you want Sarah's first book to be. Outrageously funny, painfully honest and deliciously filthy.' Phillip Schofield 'Funny and honest. Sometimes too honest. Like your nan when she's drunk at Christmas.' Ricky Gervais 'Do not read this while eating tomato soup. You are guaranteed to laugh and stain something.' Sandi Toksvig 'A properly funny autobiography had a one-night stand with a genuinely inspirational self-help book and this is their lovable mongrel offspring.' Frank Skinner 'Of course Sarah Millican's writing will make you laugh out loud, but there are moments where she will touch you deeply. The dirty bitch.' Kathy Burke 'The naughtiest, helpiest, laughieoutloudiest and goodest book I've ever done reading on. Give that girl a banana!' Dawn French
