What is this book all about?

The sparkling witty smart little black dress of books for women – The Whole Shebang will be invaluable if you are fumbling to find the right man, underwear or career. Lalita Iyer doesn’t do self-help but if you need a survival guide in your pocket, here it is – dating, relationships, money, sex, home, motherhood, friendship, body image, style, and other life skills – languid and real, this will make your journey through life a little wiser and funnier.


This is the first time I am reviewing a non fiction book on my blog. The first thing which attracted me was the cover of the book and the title. This is book is written by a woman author where she highlights the problems faced by the woman on a daily basis and the author presented them in such a way that it makes you laugh.

The writing style of the author is simple and it is not very complicated. Lalita Iyer has done good job in terms of writing and she engages the readers in the conversation and every woman has faced similar problems including me and I could relate toward this book a lot.

My personal favorites are the essays on period, body image, thongs, food, and work life balance. The remaining chapters show cases regarding money management, in-laws, parenting etc. The book has been written in such a way that you will love the book and  you will not be bored at all.

What I did not like in this book?

Lalita Iyer was right in the arguments for the sex part however I was not comfortable with the way she described it and her opinion in terms of sex.


It is a good read and I would recommend this book to all the women.

Rating: 4/5*
