Synopsis

Hadley Freeman, Guardian features writer and author of the popular 'Ask Hadley...' column, reminds the modern lady to 'Be Awesome'.





All women need to listen to Hadley. She might just have the answers to life's trickiest questions, such as: why does the funny girl in the film never get the guy? Can you read a women's magazine without damaging your brain? And should you ever buy Hello Kitty knickers? Of course you shouldn't! Why are you even asking that?





With sage advice, some very helpful lists and a killer dance routine to Patrick Swayze's 'She's Like the Wind', Hadley is here to show you just how awesome life as a modern lady could be.

Customer Reviews

At its best BE AWESOME is witty and incisive: chapters 3 and 16 are, for example, brilliant parodies of Daily Mail headlines and fawning celebrity interviews, respectively. The rest of the time though, it's important, interesting subject matter is let down by the worst habits of modern columnists: namely an annoyingly glib, chatty tone, endless lists, pop culture references that won't hold up over time (one dig at Matthew McConaughy is already out of date) and, in the author's own words, "sarcasm and world-weary asides"
