Synopsis/Blurb (taken from NetGalley):

“Comedian Iain Stirling is best known as the brilliantly funny voice of the BAFTA-award winning smash hit Love Island. Despite his many accolades, and his mum telling him he’s her ‘special little soldier’ every day, Iain still struggles with everyday adult life. What a textbook millennial.

Looking back at his journey to adulthood, Iain explores why millennials are the way they are – and whether that makes us self-obsessed, work-shy, mollycoddled, egomaniacs; or just a misunderstood generation with a crippling fear of failure.

Millennials have been celebrated and scorned; they’re the envy, fascination and disgrace of the world. But is there more to this #selfie and avocado-obsessed generation that can’t grow up than meets the eye?

Throughout life millennials have been taught that they are perfect and should live a perfect life. They’ve been told, whatever happens, don’t fuck up. And then they enter the real world. And failure quickly rears its ugly head. A head millennials weren’t warned about and definitely aren’t ready for.

Iain knows a lot about fucking up. And he’s ready to share.

Funny, provocative and full of his trademark razor-sharp wit, this is Iain’s guide to what life is really like for millennials and how they can navigate it better.”


My Thought & Review

Another book that has been waiting to be read on my Kindle since July 2018.

I requested it as I wanted to read something different. I was looking for a light and funny read this book didn’t fail. The book had everything I was looking for. It was funny, bizarre and had truthful points that I could relate to in some places.

I really enjoyed reading about Iain’s family life while growing up. I also loved hearing about the good and bad as well as the bizarre and funny situations Iain got into

I found the book was very well written, and from the language used you can definitely tell it’s been written by a comedian.

Overall a funny, light read that I enjoyed very much. I highly recommend especially if you’re into comedy/humorous reads and looking for something different.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher HarperCollins UK for my review in return for an honest and unbiased review.
