Life in Tatters ,

Fluffy, fun, then surprisingly heavy

I started listening to By the Book as a bit of a filler, something easy and light to listen to. But I’m completely hooked now. From their unbelievable e-book writing (maybe the funniest episode??) to the humbling depth of Jolenta’s familial realizations in You Are a Badass. I will keep listening, because they keep surprising me.

Bibliophiles unite and try to better ourselves!

So funny and honest. I love the the banter, and the husbands! J & K are a dynamic duo offering profound insight with the perfect level of humour and sass.

Damzelle Larz ,

Consistently entertaining and engaging

Kirsten and Jolenta wade through the self-help morass and let me short cut to the good stuff. And their humour and humanity shine through every episode.
