Category: Tags: , ,


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 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. It’s 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.’

  1. Melinda

    This book of Lucy’s is one of the best reads I’ve read in a long time. It takes a lot to keep my attention but this book I read from cover to cover because it was so interesting and so, so funny! Lucy has a natural ability to take you on an adventure with every word. There’s so many incredible topics covered, her experiences and the people she’s meet along her journey just blow you away. The lessons she’s learnt as a CEO and successfully running 2 big charities teaches you something too each time. Each chapter leaves you wanting more and leaves you with so many different emotions and mind explosions! I couldn’t get enough and I’m left feeling in awe and inspired from reading this. Opens your mind in such an enjoyable and memorable way, that I highly, highly recommend the read.
