Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales are two of Australia's most highly regarded journalists and for almost seven years they've been sharing their thoughts on culture, cooking and occasionally sport in their phenomenally successful podcast Chat 10 Looks 3. The podcast is a conversation on between friends who admire and respect each other, but shell like to point out each other's shortcomings and foibles, lending a richness and familiarity to it.
Now they've found time to write Well Hello, a book based loosely on the podcast. It contains everything you'd expect: their top ten books, cooking 'adjustments' for Annabel from Leigh, postulations about music, great television and much more.
Also, Well Hello provides insights into myriad subjects, namely:
• How to juggle your time and the art of saying no
• How to conduct a conversation and the power of silence
• Interviewing tips and tricks
• Advice for aspiring writers
• Advice on how to deal with social media abuse
• Ageing and Connie Britton's perfect hair
• An exposition on friendships – when to hold on to them and when to let them go
Written with candour and wry wisdom, it's a book that will entertain, delight and inform.
