Just in Time to be Too Late


Formats & editions


This eagerly awaited companion volume to the best-selling Can We Help it if We're Fabulous? is Peta Mathias at her best, with her outrageously funny blend of wit and wisdom on men, sex and relationships.

In her bestselling guide Can We Help it if We're Fabulous, the irrepressible Peta Mathias shared her thoughts on being a woman. Now, with Just in Time to be Too Late, she turns her attention to what it means to be a man in the 21st century.
What makes men cry? Why are bad boys so irresistible? What exactly is the point of sport? To what extent is a man's self worth connected to his job? What do men look for in a relationship? Does a man ever get over his first love? Why do men lie? What does he need to be happy? And, of course, why are men like buses? These are just some of the vexing questions Peta looks for answers to.
Though she has been married and has had her fair share both of meaningful relationships and flirtatious dalliances, Peta is the first to admit that she knew very little about the opposite sex when she began work on this book - 'A virgin would know more about men than me because she's probably listened more.' Consequently Just in Time to be Too Late is an account of Peta's own discoveries as she delves deeper into the mysterious world of men - a highly personal and frequently hilarious pilgrimage that will resonate with women everywhere.
