Any She Can Do I Can Do Better

Rachael Oakes-Ash

Random House

RRP: $22.95

SheSaid Price: $20.66

About the book: Have you coveted, envied, admired another woman’s hair, shoes, bag, job, husband, figure or weight this morning? Chances are you’re competitive – not that you’ll admit it. The unspoken truth about women and competition is something previously swept under the carpet like menstruation and masturbation. Rachel Oakes-Ash has the honesty of your best friend with the humour of a stand-up comedian mixed into one hilarious yet very thought-provoking read.

Perfect for you! A great book to get you in the mood for making meaningful New Year’s resolutions…
