Everything I Know About Love: Now a Major BBC One Series Kindle Edition
THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WITH A NEW CHAPTER ON TURNING THIRTY.
'There is no writer quite like Dolly Alderton working today and very soon the world will know it' Lisa Taddeo, author Three Women
'The book we will thrust into our friends' hands. Alderton feels like a best friend and your older sister all rolled into one and her pages wrap around you like a warm hug' Evening Standard
Award-winning journalist Dolly Alderton survived her twenties (just about) and in Everything I Know About Love, she gives an unflinching account of the bad dates and squalid flat-shares, the heartaches and humiliations, and most importantly, the unbreakable female friendships that helped her to hold it all together. Glittering with wit, heart and humour, this is a book to press into the hands of every woman who has ever been there or is about to find themselves taking that first step towards the rest of their lives.
'Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation' Elizabeth Day
'Steeped in furiously funny accounts of one-night stands, ill-advised late-night taxi journeys up the M1, grubby flat-shares and the beauty of female friendships, as Alderton joyfully booze-cruises her way through her twenties' Metro
'Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic' Daily Telegraph
'A sensitive, astute and funny account of growing up millennial' Observer
'I loved its truth, self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart-spilling generosity' Sophie Dahl
'Alderton proves a razor-sharp observer of the shifting dynamics of long term female friendship' Mail on Sunday
'It's so full of life and laughs - I gobbled up this book. Alderton has built something beautiful and true out of many fragments of daftness' Amy Liptrot

Very, very, very funny. Don't hate me when I tell you that Everything I Know About Love is Sex And The City for millennials, because I mean it as high praise ― Red
Alderton is an old soul - she has learned life lessons while not yet out of her twenties that many of us post-menopausal matrons are still struggling with. A wonderful writer, who will surely inspire a generation the way that Caitlin Moran did before her. ― Julie Burchill
Mesmerising, brilliant ― Daily Telegraph
I loved it so much, I wanted it to go on forever, Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent ― Marian Keyes
I thought I knew a lot about love. Not as much as Dolly. Read as soon as possible. ― Sharon Horgan
If Nora Ephron is the cool aunt you wish you'd had, Dolly Alderton is your favourite cousin. I loved it and I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't; it's a genuine delight ― Kristen Roupenian, author of Cat Person
Witty and insightful ― Sunday Times Culture
You will quite literally laugh and cry as Dolly crashes her way through her teens and twenties. This is about growing up and all the mess that comes with it. I loved it.― The Pool
Exquisite, hilarious, I loved every page. I was dazzled by her warmth and wisdom: Dolly has written an extraordinary book that all women will be able to relate to ― Emma Jane Unsworth
Hilarious and moving. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation ― Elizabeth Day
Steeped in furiously funny accounts of one-night stands, ill-advised late-night taxi journeys up the M1, grubby flat-shares and the beauty of female friendships, as Alderton joyfully booze-cruises her way through her twenties ― Metro
I loved its truth, its self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart spilling generosity. The power of female friendships is such great, uncharted territory, and just when you think it's going one (wonderful) way, it takes you somewhere infinitely more rugged, complicated and all the more affectingly tender. A joy. In short, it's a stone cold classic― Sophie Dahl
Funny, sexy and clever, Dolly Alderton is never less than dazzling on the travails of the human heart. She writes with breathtaking honesty about falling into lust and out of love, and each chapter reads like those late night conversations with your best girlfriend that you never want to end ― Clover Stroud
A sensitive and funny account of growing up millennial. ― The Observer
Will have you hooked and nodding from the first page. Hilarious and moving ― Grazia
Alderton proves a razor-sharp observer of the shifting dynamics of long term female friendship ― Mail on Sunday
If you're ever feeling a tad down and need to climb into bed with a book, Emerald Street would prescribe Heartburn by Nora Ephron...Fortunately, it now has a millennial companion piece courtesy of writer and journalist, Dolly Alderton ― Emerald Street
Witty and warm, this is ostensibly a memoir about romantic love - and it is filled with plenty of stories about great and terrible men. But the most touching parts were on friendship, and how powerful and comforting the love of a good friend is ― Stylist
I so recommend Dolly Alderton's millennial memoir, which takes you on an uncomfortable journey through love and anxiety, to an unexpectedly happy ending. It's just lovely ― Eva Wiseman
Weaving first-person stories and lists with email parodies and recipes, it's Nora Ephron for the Tinder generation ― Financial Times
Her fun and moving stories of bad dates and good friends melted my heart ― Sunday Mirror
Funny, touching and wholly delightful ― The Bookseller
Sure to leave you smiling ― Elle Magazine
An effervescent guide to millennial life ― i
Honest, funny and touching ― Evening Standard
With courageous honesty, Alderton documents the highs and the lows - the sex, the drugs, the nightmare landlords, the heartaches and the humiliations. Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic ― Daily Telegraph --This text refers to the paperback edition.

What is lovely about this book is the theme of solid friendship with her female friends. And I loved the therapy parts where she really gets sorted, seeing, then leaving behind her destructive patterns and coming to a peaceful self-acceptance. There are parts that are funny, parts that are sad, and parts that are wise. It’s a great book, and Dolly herself sounds like a great person. Like me and many others, there’ll be sections you’ll want to highlight.
I feel very related to it.
Meaningful, and insightful.
Funny and touching.
A reminder to love yourself, and value your friends.
I will definitely read it again.
My fav chapter… “Thirties ” and “everything I know about love at 30s”
I wish I read this book at my 20s , although perhaps I wouldn’t understand it ad I do now at 30s.
Great writer Dolly 🥰

Her stories are underwhelming and describe most people’s student life. She comes across as selfish and jealous and a terrible friend - not a character who you can warm to at all. There is nothing interesting about this woman’s life. If there was a zero star button she’d have it.
Second of all - the book is stupid, annoying, doesn’t tell you anything you don’t already know. The author’s stories are pathetic/sad/annoying. I really don’t see the reason for listening her moan about how she hated her teenage years because she couldn’t be independent, and drinking on every occasion since 10 years old made her feel like an adult... when she finally became an adult, she spent her uni days getting dead drunk and moaned university gave her nothing.. well, I wonder why that was the case ... :/
