VULTURE ** TIME **ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY**
--Dave Itzkoff, New York Times "Coel covers everything . . . with her signature wit and wisdom, making it clear that her narrative power transcends the small screen. Coel's is a voice that jumps off the page, and it's one we're lucky to have applied to whichever story she chooses to tell."
--Vogue.com "Written with the same perfect balance of sentiment, insight and wit that made viewers fall in love with her on the screen. . . . It's an impassioned and rousing defense of staying true to yourself and supporting others to do the same."
--Time "Astute . . . Coel is a gifted writer. The text is razor-sharp and as funny as I May Destroy You."
--Rosie Kinchen, Sunday Times "Warm and funny . . . A perfect truth-teller of our time."
--ELLE "Searing . . . a call-to-arms book filled with her own life lessons. Prepare for this to be your self-help bible of 2021."
--Sunday Times "Leaps off the page . . . [Coel] hits hard: funny, but also direct . . . Coel is all about letting go of fear or, at least, of using it to find your way to something better."
--Miranda Sawyer, The Observer
