    Alan Johnson
  • Everyone over 50 needs to read this bracing and inspirational book

    Nigella Lawson
  • Candid, original, humorous, and sad. Lucy Kellaway has always been a wonderful writer. This is a life-affirming account of how and why she ticks.

    Jon Snow
  • There are lots of reasons to read this book, which has the fineness of detail, sharpness of humour and grace of a novel by Penelope Lively. But it's this business of changing one's mind - the thing most of us least like to do - that I admired the most

    Emma Brockes, Observer
  • Inspiring, insightful and sometimes sharply funny...In all her brave uncertainty, it leaves you sure of one thing: if the question is 'Why start again in middle age?', the answer is a resounding 'Why not?'

    The Times
  • Funny and engaging

    Sunday Times
  • Dazzling... this wonderful, funny book is a celebration of the power of education.
