'Part memoir, part MBA masterclass . . . an impressively erudite and candid autobiography.' Glamour

'From her troubled childhood and her time as a young editor, to her partnership with Jimmy Choo and her very public relationships, Mellon offers a gripping account of the episodes that have made her. A book Jackie Collins would be proud of, with the added bonus that it is all true. A voyeuristic joy from start to finish.' Harpers Bazaar

'A brilliant must-read.' Harpers Bazaar

'Pure Danielle Steel, with added MBA, that jets from Vogue shoots in Nepal and dates with Christian Slater, to trade fairs, boardroom takeovers and a family showdown over missing millions. Perfect for grown-up fashionistas and wannabe entrepreneurs.' Sunday Times

'Hugely dramatic, brilliant.' Red

'Reads like an epic adventure. Mellon's story is a roller coaster of emotion. For budding entrepreneurs, In My Shoes is a brilliant introduction to the workings of big business.' Red

'A juicy and honest memoir from one of the most successful and self-made British businesswomen of her generation.' Financial Times
