There has been a whole tradition of books over hundreds of years where a father shares his wisdom with his son. Meanwhile, women have tended to remain silent (a.k.a. bullied into thinking their advice wasn't worth writing down). Jo Brand's book puts a stop to all that. Ranging from your family and how to survive it, to what no one tells you about the female body; from how not to fall in love, to heckling as a life-skill, 'Born Lippy' gathers together the things Jo's learnt about the world, the things she wishes she'd known and the things she hopes for the future.
