Kasey Edwards has everything she's always wanted: a successful career and the lifestyle and assets to match. But she's empty and uninspired and doesn't want to go to work . . . Ever again. Terrified that she'll spend the rest of her life wearing pinstripes and pretending to care about 'adding value', Kasey embarks on a quest to rediscover passion and purpose in her life and work. We follow her on a journey of self-discovery as she looks for meaning in a puppy's eyes, begs her gynaecologist to cure her existential crisis, dabbles with the Law of Attraction and braves ten days of silent meditation. Meanwhile, her best friend Emma, who is experiencing a similar crisis, concentrates her search in the fields of casual sex and vodka shots. This irreverent yet poignant memoir will make you question our definition of the 'perfect life', laugh at the absurdity of the modern workplace and be warmed by the story of a friendship. Rise above your office cubicle for a moment and join Kasey in asking life's big questions - and find the courage to listen to your answers.

Reviews

"A thought-provoking journey which proves that women can have it all - just not all at once!" -- Kathy Lette "Packed with brilliantly funny anecdotes, this hilarious memoir had us giggling from the start - and made us realise we're not the only ones confused by the sheer enormity of life (*****)" * Heat * "Edwards is a likeably cynical narrator (****)" * London Lite *

I read a excerpt from this book before i saw the title - otherwise i probably never would have picked it up! The excerpt intrigued me though, and it sounded like a good laugh along with some serious soul-searching. After the first few chapters i struggled though: if you don't enjoy being lectured from other self-help guides that the author read, don't bother... That said, the ending of the book really did give me something to think about!

Fabulous book! A true story where you'll laugh and you'll probably roll your eyes, but if you're not 100% happy and fulfilled in what you do day in, day out you'll appreciate everything this book has to offer. It demonstrates what many people are afraid to admit and takes a journey to finding fulfillment through many paths but shows once you have your goal in sight persistence pays off.
