Razor-witted, wise and just a touch scandalous, Beat till Stiff covers topics that Peta considers important, entertaining, naughty or personal. With chapters on why redheads have more fun, how egg whites provide a metaphor for living and how Peta stopped strangling her mother, the eagerly awaited follow-up to Can We Help it if We're Fabulous? and Just in Time to be too Late, is a book about the universal themes that affect all women.

This month, another New Zealand cook, another biography although this one could not be more different from Dame Alison Holstís. Peta Mathias is back with a witty, biting, brutally honest and wickedly funny recipe for life. Itís in the same vein as Can We Help It if Weíre Fabulous but is more autobiographical than her previous best seller. She covers everything - red hair, relationships with mothers, therapy, affairs with philanderers, affairs with fabulous Frenchmen, her life-long affair with food - itís classic Mathias and a great read.
