Product description

Product Description

How did you become the person you are today? Lessons learned from our mothers can set the course for the lives we will lead and the people we will become. A mother can be many things: generous, heroic, nurturing, inspiring, difficult; she guides us in our growth, she teaches us about the world. And all the while she is her own person.

In Things My Mother Taught Me a diverse range of Australian identities share their personal stories. Within these pages are mature reflections on how a mother shapes, nurtures, and complicates a life. Reflections on how each of these prominent people would not be who they are today if it weren’t for this unique relationship. These are stories of fondness, gratitude, respect and regret. They are insights into an area of human experience where small moments can have a large and lasting impact.

Featuring the stories of Naomi Simson, Li Cunxin, Paul Vasileff, Shaynna Blaze, Tracy Bartram, Napoleon Perdis, Fiona Patten, Adriano Zumbo, Tiriel Mora, Geraldine Cox, Graeme Simsion, Jacqueline Pascarl, Benjamin Law, Lynn Gilmartin, Kathy Lette, Robin Bowles, Greg Fleet, Miguel Maestre, and Lawrence Mooney, as told to Claire Halliday.

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I love the concept of the book and enjoy learning bits of people's lives. I think the book might be better for a slightly more mature generation or those who know more celebrities as I did not know many of the people in the book and there was some assumed baseline knowledge in some of the chapters.
It would be a great book to dip in and out of rather than reading it straight through as it did get a little repetitive. As happens with a book like this there are chapters I enjoyed much more than others.
Overall it is an interesting read and well collated. I loved how Claire Halliday finished with her own story.
