Description

Stirring, straight-talking, incredibly inspiring, funny and full-on – Lucy Bloom is one of a kind, and so is her memoir.

Lucy’s openhearted interest in the world has taken her from jillarooing on a cattle farm to maternity hospitals in Ethiopia, from marshalling a cross-country carnival in northern Uganda to CEO briefings in the back of a tuk-tuk in Cambodia. Hers has been a life of fighting for the underdog only to find out that, sometimes, the underdog is actually her. Taking all dramatic life-turns, side-steps and face-plants in her stride, Lucy has rebuilt her life every time, with love and adventure at its heart, plus a side order of mischief.

Rollicking, rude, brimful with joy, and written with a take-no-prisoners, bare-all honesty, this book is a call to arms – a book to make you laugh out loud, nod your head in recognition, re-charge your life and let loose.

‘My deepest wish is that reading this book makes you want to do cool stuff, make plans, launch that business, pack your bags, shave your head, ride that horse, date that hottie, apply for that job, chuck that party – and, most of all, get your girls out, whatever that means for you.’

Soft cover – 243 pages – Published by HarperCollins Publishers Australia
ISBN 978-1-4607-5146-6

    I took this book on a recent o/s trip and i didn’t want either the literary or the literal adventure to be over!
    The mark of a great book for me is how i feel at the end and this book made me feel ordinary which is exactly the point.
    Lucy’s ability to skillfully describe the ups and downs of life, the ordinary and the extraordinary, the highest points and the lowest are something we can all identify with.
    Lucy has written a book that perfectly tells all of our stories and inspires us to live our lives a little better, walk a little taller and sing a little louder. Thank you Lucy Bloom.

    As a bloke reading this book there were short parts that were a little uncomfortable to read, and that’s OK because life is filled with uncomfortable truths. What’s important is the book is still an excellent read for blokes, even though I’m not quite sure how the title translates for us? And getting our balls out is probably more criminal than liberating. But whatever, it’s the spirit of the book that’s important and Lucy’s journey is an epic one. I’d seen snippets of her over the years but reading behind the scenes was hilarious, inspiring and horrifying… and probably other stuff as well. Personally, I found it all pretty inspiring, and a great read. Definitely a fan.

    A great read on subjects I had no idea about – birthing, third world doctoring, the problems of running a charity etc. Bloom handles the dichotomies of being a mother and a carefree spirit with great aplomb. Bloom has an infectious wit and a funny, tell-it-as-it-is, no holds barred style of writing that never lets up from the start. How much living can one person do? Bloom proves you can do a hell of a lot if you really want to. A rollicker.

    Gutsy, raw, honest and real. Lucy takes me on the ride with her and I am hanging on to every word. I feel like I am jillarooing with her, sitting alongside when she gets the message saying she is fired. She owns her story, all of her story and doesn’t sugarcoat it. Actually, she does the opposite of sugarcoating, she tells it like it is and I tell you what, that is bloody refreshing. Thank you.

  5. Elloise

    Get the girls out is pure magic! Lucy has captured such a unique and inspirational approach that will leave you wanting to seize the day and do all the things you’ve been dreaming of. This is the kind of book that you just can’t put down. Do yourself a favour, read it, say yes and throw caution to the wind.
