A new, expanded edition of the bestselling My Mother Always Used to Say is in the shops to mark Mother’s Day, 14 March 2010. The first edition was a popular bestseller for Christmas 2009 and was reprinted twice within six weeks of publication. Thousands of fans of the book throughout the country know that maternal wisdom is very far from being a lost tradition.

My Mother Always Used to Say is a collection of the words of wisdom parents hand down to their children, just like the things your own mother (or father) kept saying to you as a child. The collection focuses on well–known people, such as former USA President Bill Clinton, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, Brigitte Bardot, Joanna Lumley, Michael Longley, Brian Keenan, Sir Alex Ferguson, Seamus Heaney, Enda Kenny, Joe Duffy, Sharon Osborne, Bill Cullen, Maeve Binchy, Tony and Chérie Blair, Pierre Cardin, Miriam O’Callaghan, Terry Prone, Gay Byrne, Gerry Ryan, Marco Pierre White and Christy Moore.

Bill Clinton served two terms as President of the USA and continues to enjoy great popularity. Could it be anything to do with his mother telling him, ‘You can do or be anything you put your mind to’? As a young boy in Glasgow, Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, learned to keep his feet firmly on the ground when his mother advised, ‘Don’t get too big for your boots.’ Bestselling author Maeve Binchy grew up to fully understand that ‘How are you?’ is a greeting, not a question.
