    Most men need to read this to know what its like to be a woman or mother. Very blunt descriptions of the life half the populations is living or has lived. Kudos to the author for putting out there the need for social change in so many areas. Very easy to read format too. I finished it while waiting during my spouses colonoscopy.

    If you need a good primer to feminism, this is a great one. I love Emma. Excellent comic and very glad to have read this in full. I learned a lot.

    This book gave words and validation to so many feelings I've had over the years and couldn't pinpoint. I'm so glad I found it!

    I expected to love this book based on excerpts that I've seen, but it's actually not very good. It is advertised as a feminist comic focusing on gender inequality, but in fact, it attempts to cover many types of inequality with minimal depth and effort. I personally felt it didn't do any topic justice.

    As far as the advertising to put this on a colleagues deskonly if you want to get sued. There are terms in here

    Genius!!!! This is one of those books that you read and think, "why didn't I think of that?" I love how she uses the medium of comics and comic book art to convey feminist messaging. Brilliant.

    I read about this book in the Guardian and it sounded great.
    I was quite disappointed by its content: the storyline is very banal and somewhat naive and the drawings are also not very interesting. I thought it

    Funny but so many important aspects of society to think about. This book will stay with me for a long time. Perhaps this book should be compulsory reading in secondary schools to help the next generations organise lives fairly and effectively.

    Book looks undamaged inside but cover has patch of card stuck to it unrelated to the packaging. As it stands, it ruins the appearance, and it is not possible to remove it without damaging the cover.
    This is disappointing and unfortunate, luckily it is not a gift. But I was not expecting a damaged item.
    On the contents really looking forward to reading, loved catching Emma’s illustrations online so to have them collated is exciting!

    The different format made this an engaging book and the concept of mental load was well explained. Nothing new in the book but well done Emma and continue with building your cooperatives.

    This is a great read for women everywhere. And new moms trying to get their point of view across to their partners for help at home.
