Inspirational, razor-witted and funny, Can We Help It if We're Fabulous is Peta Mathias at her wisest — and naughtiest.

The irrepressible Peta Mathias is a woman who has never been afraid to embrace life with all its glorious inconsistencies, joys and heartbreaks. With ten topics relevant to all women — Fashion, Food, Relationships, Music, Travel, Beauty, Work, Sex, Happiness and, of course, Men — Peta's sagacious, sexy and occasionally scurrilous book will encourage and inspire readers to reinvent, spice up, embrace and celebrate the lives they have. As well as recounting her own life lessons, Peta interviews a range of women — from psychologists to plastic surgeons, sex therapists to hairdressers, doctors to singers — and discovers what a woman needs to make her happy, independent and successful.
