"Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It's profound, touching, personal yet universal . . . I loved it"
"With enormous poignancy and insight . . . Webb's early portrait of himself as a hapless underdog navigating the boulder-strewn path of masculinity is vividly drawn and very funny . . . Echoes of Adrian Mole"
"Takes us deftly from hilarity to heart-stopping hurt . . . A truly great read, full of heart"
"Frank and compelling ... Laugh-out-loud funny ... also, in parts, blink-back-tears sad. Why would I blink back tears rather than give full rein to the emotion? Well, Webb can explain"
Mail On Sunday
"Written with wit and clarity, How Not To Be a Boy is a funny, rueful, truthful book. I enjoyed every page"
