I've long suspected that Holly Whitaker is a genius. This book is confirmation. It's a brilliantly clever, meticulously researched, fearless, snort-out-loud funny read that grabs you and won't let go. * Catherine Gray * Funny, fast-paced, and bracingly candid ... Holly Whitaker is no polished model of self-help evangelism, nor is her memoir-manifesto selling a one-size-fits-all-solution. Her story is a messy human one and all the more convincing that sobriety is a feminist issue -- Melissa Febos An unflinching examination of how our drinking culture hurts women and a gorgeous memoir of how one woman healed herself. Quit Like a Woman will change your relationship with alcohol - and it has the power to change your relationship with your entire life. * Glennon Doyle * This thoughtful, moving book will help a lot of people get to a healthier place. * Johann Hari *
