A fascinating, true-life depiction of contemporary behaviour, this book takes you on a multi-dimensional roller-coaster ride, with twists and turns and emotional ups and downs at every corner. It entertainingly documents modern attitudes to work, dating, sex and friendship. More insightful than any fiction.

Bentley is remarkable in his honesty and attacks a controversial subject head on teaching us all the value of not judging too
