Description

You know what I want?
I want to be able to have fun wherever I am.
I want to laugh. All. The. Time.
I want to have one holiday every year with my family where we have no plans and nowhere else to be.
I want to watch less television and read more books.
I want to be able to whinge about never being able to be alone any more, then, after someone organises a hotel room voucher for me, I want to spend the evening eating chips (that I don’t like) from a cylinder and missing my children to the point of tears.


From weight to wee, children to crap dates, nothing is off limits for Chrissie Swan, self-confessed ‘over-sharer’. Celebrity, friendship, love, being a working mum, ‘having it all’ and the general chaos of life – Is It Just Me? is Chrissie at her hilarious, candid and fearless best.

‘Chrissie Swan writes what we’re all thinking. Her honesty and humour are a gift. And a relief!’ – Mia Freedman

‘Smart, sassy, funny. Chrissie is the best girlfriend everyone should have. And with this book, now they can.’ - Matt Preston

    Chrissie is funny, self-deprecating and a great writer; I could also relate to many of her experiences also being a mother of 3, I really enjoyed her perspective of the world in this book. I also really enjoyed "the Circle" of which Chrissie was a vital part and always watch anything she's involved in on the telly, she's the sort of woman who'd be fabulous to have at your dinner party.

    Christies I first saw you on big brother loved you and expected you to win. Your graciousness when you didn't was a pleasure to behold. Saw you balling your eyes out on the circle because you had left Leo at childcare. You are amazing stunning to look at and I wish you were my friend.

    Almost all these stories Chrissy told in the age, Sunday magazine. So now like a fool, I've paid twice. Yes they are funny, but seriously I thought there would be more substance. Very disappointed.
  • Love Chrissie

    I've loved Chrissie since the circle and did really like the quirky stories. Unfortunately it didn't flow and the stories seemed mismatched and non consequential. I expected more.

    I have realised that I no longer enjoy fiction. Each time I give it a go, it invariably ends in a discarded book half way through, when the plot becomes implausible. As it so often does. Unsatisfying. I now make a beeline for autobiographies about people I find fascinating, funny or who I simply like. Anh do is one, and I loved his book. Funny, honest, heartfelt and real. Chrissie swan is another example of such qualities, and her book embodies all those things. This is a collection of stories/experiences/commentary on the hilarity of a life lived. It's really funny, will have you nodding in agreement and coming to some conclusions of your own on what happiness truly means. This book is immensely enjoyable and very well written. You will feel like you know the author when you're done, and she seems like a thoroughly great gal. Wonderful!
