I'm Absolutely Fine! The Manual for Imperfect Women offers a wry, heartfelt, edgy look at what it is to be a grown-up woman: with all the anxiety and potential woven through everyday life. Chapters cover topics such as relationships ('It's Not Me, It's You'), sex ('What Could Possibly Go Wrong?'), joy ('In My Defence, I was Left Unsupervised'), stuff ('If It Ain't Broke...But it Probably Is)'), friendship ('Wishbone, Backbone, Funnybone') and self-image ('Does This Straitjacket Make Me Look Fat?'). Topics are explored through essays, listicles ('Five Guys You Probably Slept With', 'Snaccidents' and 'Secrets of the Midult Universe') and mantras ('Idiots Happen', 'It takes a lot of therapy to be this shallow' and 'Perfection? You Can Keep It.').
After reading this book, Midults will no longer feel like civilization's ignored middle child, but happier, stronger and better prepared. Remember: Life is tough. So are you.
