    How not to be good? Let me list the ways…

    Are you a woman? Do you make to-do lists to stop you losing your mind? Have you ever cried in the toilets at work, had a meltdown in the supermarket, or gone off the rails at a hen party?

    And have you ever been saved from any of the above by your truly brilliant friends?

    If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this is the book for you. A moving, funny and brutally honest memoir of one woman’s millennial misadventures, The To-Do List and Other Debacles follows Amy Jones on her journeys through friendship, marriage and mental health disasters in a story that’s as relatable as it is riotous.

Amy Jones is video producer and writer at The Pool, where her pieces (on topics as diverse as the tyranny of diets, misadventures in self-care and the number of slang terms for the vagina) are frequently among the platform’s most-read. She is also the co-presenter of the storytelling podcast And Then What?. Born in Wales, she now lives in London with her husband and their adorable cat Flick.
