About this deal

Reading this book is like having a chat with a knowledgable great friend, who can see things for what they are and name them in a really honest way. For years, New York Times bestselling author Dolly Alderton has been sharing her wisdom, warmth, and wit with the diverse universe of fans who have turned to her "Dear Dolly" column seeking guidance on a host of life problems. i look forward to dipping in and out of it the next time i find myself wishing i had a millennial big sister to bring me back down to earth.

Their questions range from the painfully - and sometimes hilariously - relatable to the occasionally bizarre. Without judgement, and with deep empathy informed by her own, much-chronicled adventures with love, friends, and dating, Dolly helps us navigate the labyrinths of life. Although I didn't love Everything I Know About Love at the time I read it (and have already reached the conclusion that it was a matter of right book-wrong time), I really like Dolly's writing. Her first novel Ghosts was published in October 2020 and was also a top five Sunday Times Bestseller. Furthermore, I really liked that the book covered several themes, namely friendship, relationships and family.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. what I learnt from sharing my most private pain with a semi-professional problem-solver was that the mere act of asking for help was, in itself, healing. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It was as if I had crept down to the docks under cover of darkness and floated a message out in a bottle, imagining how it might be received. In my opinion, it is a short (230 pages) and easy read, but very informative and accessible, in which we can identify with many of the doubts mentioned.

By writing it, I was acknowledging that someone might care about me; that they'd be able to say the right thing without knowing me. I did find most of the questions and answers to be for those quite a bit younger than myself, but there are a few that pertain to Gen X readers. Thank God for Dolly - I’m obsessed with her deeply empathetic, entirely shame-absolving and emotionally intelligent wisdom!

From the author of Everything I Know About Love and longtime Sunday Times Style columnist comes advice and answers to your questions about dating, love, sex, family, friendship and more. kind of hoping she does some more tv producing because the tv adaptation of everything i know about love was great. Dolly has an incredible ability to put herself in another person's shoes, something that sometimes seems so easy, but can actually turn out to be quite difficult. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation' Elizabeth DaySince early 2020, Dolly Alderton has been sharing her wisdom, warmth and wit with the countless people who have written in to her Dear Dolly agony aunt column in The Sunday Times Style. Feel bad giving this two stars because I know it’s more meant for people in their 30s and 40s not me.

what I really loved in this was that her humor still shines through really well and I laughed out loud multiple times. In this wonderful collection, she brings together her collected knowledge in one invaluable volume that will make you think, make you laugh, and help you confront any conundrum or crisis. What surprised me most about this book on the positive side was the way it is written in which, as is the collection of Dolly's advice in the Dear Dolly column in The Sunday Times Style, we can read the person's perspective and doubts about a certain subject and then the answer provided by Dolly.Dolly’s first book ( everything I know about love)blew me away, her second fictional book ( Ghosts) was something I had to grind my way through it and this one is not great!
